Coronavirus inspiration, information & resources

Joyce Holland receives a COVID-19 vaccination from Tia Moore, nurse practitioner, at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tenn.

United Methodists in parts of the world are beginning to feel hopeful as vaccines become more readily available. Yet, we know many across the connection have limited or no access to COVID-19 testing and vaccinations. With our hopefulness, we may also feel tired, frustrated, anxious and disheartened. 

The Bible says that we are not alone. "Be strong and bold; ...because it is the Lord your God who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not fail you or forsake you."(Deuteronomy 31:6,8)
