Scripture is a light that guides the way.

A few months after the start of the pandemic, w’re still seeing and experiencing the consequences: sickness, death, sorrow, and physical and psychological suffering. The economy is reeling from the effects.

If we’re looking for an anchor that will give us security in these worrying times, the Bible can help us find it.
