How I Hope to Spend the Next Few Weeks
Right now, we are in week one of the lockdown from the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, I have work still to do, although I'm restricting my movements to help stop the spread in the community. We can still be about our mission as a church which is to equip and engage people on every block in our community for mission with Jesus.
Here is how I hope to use my time outside of work for the next few weeks:
- Doing creative work. I want to be glad for the writing and podcasting and videos and plans that I made. I think people need distraction in these days. Creative work helps do that.
- I want to plant seeds. I want to plant seeds for our literal garden, but also plant the seeds of other things that will produce fruit later. I'm considering starting a side business, and this is a good time to work on it.
- I want to read good books. Reading has taken a back seat the last few months to other projects and needs. I hope to work through several of these.
- I want to play a few games. It is easy to watch the news and scroll Facebook. But games are so much more rewarding.
Some people aren't so lucky that they can work in these days. I think we can all add something to the world rather than just wait it out.
