Caring for Yourself and Others
As the COVID-19pandemic drags on everyone is experiencing fatigue on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. Normally, when we go through hardships there are others in our community who can minister to us from a position of strength. However, the challenge of COVID-19 is that no one is unaffected, we must all be both patient and physician at once. On airplanes, they tell you that in the event of an emergency you are to put on your own oxygen mask first, and then assist others because you can’t help anyone once you are passed out. The goal of “Caring for Yourself and Others” is to teach us how to put on our masks, and then help those around us put on theirs too. It is as we learn to rely upon the resources we have in Christ, that we can be a resource to others.
