TWO SILVER LININGS IN CORONA'S DARK CLOUD
ANTHONY TONER - GHOST NOTES VOL 1

IF WE GET THROUGH THIS...

Stocki 19

I came down to Fitzroy one Sunday morning particularly frazzled. Now that is a regular scenario. Even after ten years I am still as nervous every single Sunday as I was on my very first day!

Anyway, I am not sure why this Sunday was worse than others. It must have been. A few elders pray with me before the service and as we gathered one of them, June Pat, asked me how I was.

June Pat", I said, "If we get through this, you can be sure that God exists".

As quick as a flash, June Pat replied, "Steve, I am sure that God exists, so we will get through this".

It was simple BUT it was brilliant. Since that morning, I have said those words to June Pat many times. I have even texted them to her from Uganda and America. Her response still brings me some assurance when I just need a word.

June Pat reminded me of our little mantra this morning. In these uncertain days of the Coronarvirus our little back and forth might be worth hanging on to.

 

"June Pat", I said,

"If we get through this

You can be sure that God exists"

"Steve," said June Pat,

I am sure that God exists 

So we will get through this".
