Rev. Rebecca's husband just found out he was "furloughed." She likes to learn new words-- but not this way. This pandemic is impacting all of us in unforeseen ways. This can be scary, but God reassures us that we do not have to be afraid.
Today is Jeff's first official day of being furloughed. Rebecca learned what the word “furlough, “ means, “laid off from work without pay.” It is a scary feeling. As the current pandemic stretches on and on, It is impacting all of us in many unforeseen ways. But we do not have to be afraid. Love always lasts. Love drives out fear. God loves us, so we always have hope.
Rev. Rebecca is an ordained elder serving in the Susquehanna Conference. She serves Christ Community UMC and Llyswen UMC in the Altoona District. She is the author of The United Methodist Church and Disability and Hope for the Broken: Using Writing to Find God's Grace (coming soon from Touch Point Press).
