Struggling Alone, Together

Posted by on May 5, 2020 in | No Comments

On this fourth Sunday in the season of resurrection, we read from the book of Genesis, the story of Jacob wrestling a stranger all throughout the night. It seems appropriate that we read this story of struggle-born hope as we, too, are in the midst of struggle. Some of our struggles are longstanding and some are brought on by social distancing, isolation, and threat of the new Coronavirus. Either way, perhaps today we might fight some hope in the midst of struggle.
