God doesn’t step in to stop ‘natural evils’ like coronavirus, plague, and natural disasters. God bless us all and stay safe!

Dear Chris,

Just to say how much I look forward to your posts. Thank you for helping us to focus and find hope, especially in such a time as this.

As worshiping together is likely to be suspended for the foreseeable future, your emails will be a light in the darkness.

God bless you and your family. Please stay safe.

Love and thanks,
