A Message From Our Executive Director
"We Stand Tall"
Dear Brother to Brother Family,
I did not envision this pandemic and it’s disruptive, and deadly impact on our state, nation and the world. Yet it’s clear that we were not prepared mentally or materially for the changes in our daily lives we have been forced to endure. Yet we must and will face this challenge with the determination to overcome its threat to our lives, families, and fellow citizens.
COVID-19, unlike a traditional enemy that can be seen and attacked with our political and military might, is a virus unseen except in the medical laboratory, however, we have growing evidence of its power, as more and more of our fellow humans the world over have contracted the virus that has killed thousands and left many fighting for their lives. We have been forced to adjust our daily lives, by the restrictions on shopping, congregating together, and traveling. Our Spring sporting events, we so look forward to after a winter of cabin fever, have been cancelled or postponed, forcing us to look for new ways to relax and enjoy the outdoor environment.
But the hardest change we face is the new rules against physical contact with others, congregating together, in the market, playing fields, schools, organizations, and churches. Yet this is what we are called upon to do for our own safety as well as that of others, especially those we love and care about. It is my hope that each of us uses this period of quiet and relative inactivity to meditate on our own individual mission in life, our concern for our families, neighbors, friends, and our blessings. One thing that is certain, we are all here by the Grace of God and must learn to love each other, regardless of class, political, religious, and ethnic differences. Using common sense and most importantly praying for the Lord’s help will see us safely through to the other side. Please feel free to reach out to me if I can be of help in any way.
