#FridayFacts. Faith is a refusal to panic.

#fridayfacts At the most basic level, faith is a refusal to panic, even in the face of COVID-19. They say it's all about considering our circumstances and putting them in a proper perspective.

Well, that is the theory anyway. But in practice, we often panic, just look our nation's shopping frenzy this week. It seems it’s one of those things that’s easier said than done! When the crunch comes we often forget all about the perspective and become overwhelmed by the real or imagined threat.

So at a time like this let's remind ourselves to look at our circumstances, take a longer look at our own strength and courage and that of our mates who walk with us, and then have faith and refuse to panic. Then let’s look outward, at and for one another in the face of such challenging times.
