May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must

May we who have had to cancel our trips remember those that have no safe

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no
During this time of social distancing, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace
of God to our neighbors.
