As we slowly emerge from the season of Covid, we recognize that many of us have had a variety of losses—we have lost the ease of socializing with friends and family, moving freely to travel or shop, and gathering in person for worship. Some of us have even lost loved ones who have succumbed to the virus.
Perhaps the song Truth be Told by Matthew West (recently quoted by Rev. Jess in a sermon) resonates with you:
“You’re supposed to have it all together.
And when they ask how you’re doing,
just smile and tell them, ‘Never better’…
I say I’m fine,…but I’m not, I’m broken.”
