We persevere

We’ve been at this for months. It is difficult, frustrating and sometimes disheartening.

Restrictions are lifted, then reinstated. We move ahead a phase, only to return days later. 

As the struggles last longer than we expected, we must continue to care for our neighbors, support our congregations, and check-in with one another. In this way, we “run with perseverance the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1).
