It’s not often I’ve found the current pandemic at the forefront of a weekly reading, but I think this reading speaks to our general circumstances now, as the latest Covid variant is making its presence felt, and also how we respond to them.
We need, as uncertainty increases, to consider our plans carefully. What is most important to us? Additional fortitude is likely to be required to deal with the challenges and choices before us. Risk assessment is a rather clinical way of putting it where emotional choices are concerned: many of us want to connect with family and friends during this holiday season, more so than ever after a difficult couple of years, yet we find ourselves again having to balance this against keeping ourselves and each other safe. How each of us respond is a matter for careful consideration as the year draws to a close.
Have a good week and stay safe x
