Amy Crane, our Board President, shared this verse from 2 Tim 1:7 back in 2020 during the long summer of COVID (which stretched into fall and winter). It speaks to the post-pandemic future we are now discussing and planning for.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity,
but of power, love, and self-discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7 - NLT


The Greek word for "power" can mean "dynamism."
The word for "love" used here is "agape."
The word for "self-discipline" can also mean "moderation."

Verse 1 in Isaiah 35 speaks to the hope we have in difficult times...

The wilderness and the dry land will be glad;
the desert will rejoice and blossom with wildflowers

Isaiah 35:1


(The Hebrew word for "wildflower" in Isaiah 35:1 is rare and ambiguous. Some translations use like a "rose" or like a "crocus.")
