Dear friends and family of Eure Baptist Church,
A month or so ago I wrote with some thoughts about the church in the
COVID-19 era. I want to go beyond that for a few minutes and be a bit
predictive. I'm 99.9% sure all that I will share will be true.
In 1917-18 there was a global pandemic called the Spanish Flu. The world was
not prepared for it - no vaccine, no cure. At least 50 million people died in a world
population many, many times smaller than today. Eventually vaccines were developed
that provided some measure of prevention and cure. Today, almost everyone alive
has had some strain of this original Spanish Flu, and guess what, we're still alive!
But, unfortunately, people have died from this COVID pandemic. Maybe it will cost the
lives of a million people or more. I'm afraid that no one will really know for sure since
testing globally is spotty, as is reporting. It was originally projected that 1-2% of the infected
will die, although some now believe it will be less than 1%. Over time, most people will get
some strain of this virus, and yes, vaccines and treatments will be available for much
of the world, eventually. Testing and discovery of vaccines and therapeutics is currently going on at "warp" speed in the USA.
This is a disease that affects and infects the elderly. In some states half of those
infected who die lived in nursing home or senior care centers. Truly sad
In time, most people will get back to work. Some will seek and eventually find
new careers. Schools will reopen, although virtual learning will continue. Restaurants
will reopen, toilet paper will return to store shelves, and public events and travel by
train, bus, and air will resume. Participation levels will gradually increase.
Over time financial markets will improve, and systems of delivery for services and
products will change, particularly within the world or RX. Made in the USA will mean
more because we will of necessity need to be less dependent on foreign markets.
Now, almost all I've talked about is Kingdom of the world stuff. It's important to us for
a season. It is a shaken and shakeable kingdom. The church has also been shaken
by these world events, but the church cannot be destroyed. You who are the "church"
are part of the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of heaven, and this Kingdom is
unshaken and unshakeable.
