How we cope and how health and healing will becomes the core for each one of us
People across the world have barricaded themselves in (or, at times, been instructed to self-isolate – or else) to avoid the physical threat of a potentially deadly virus.
‘How can we find God in this?’, ‘Will our economies collapse?’, ‘What about my job?’, ‘Are we all going to die?’
The effects have been worst for the poorest people and communities in the world.
The lockdown may have created a risk of real starvation that outweighs the risk of infection.
For such people, life means hanging on by a thread. Reaching out to God is a daily, essential, way of solace, sense-making and survival.
It puts our worries about empty supermarket shelves into a humbling and challenging perspective.
The recovery post-virus will take time, care and support.
Many have faced their darkest fears and find themselves weakened, damaged, and hurting.
Soon, healing at all levels will be needed.

How we cope with isolation
Sadly, for some, the isolation posed by Covid-19 has further-darkened domestic prisons.
Since the order to self-isolate.
We hear of an increased number of cases of suicides, domestic violence, and child abuse.
Experts say the cause is a lack of access to social provision and support systems.
Even access to the help of loved ones was reduced by efforts to ‘flatten the curve’.
How we experience
Others experienced little change to their daily activities, other than rolling out-of-bed to walk a few feet to their home office.
Some didn’t have to roll out of bed at all, if they were on furlough.
Amazing how an event can impact on billions in such a way that its identity can be recognized everywhere by a single name.

As the push to re-open the global economy begins, we must know that our personal experience with this pandemic is distinctive in its physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and relational impacts
– yet it’s collective ashes we all must rise from.
How we heal from the viral setback will depend on our own identity and locus of power.
For some, healing cannot be done alone.
We must be willing to help each other heal by extending a hand to those in need.
We must continue to connect in ways that may feel far-fetched, or old-fashioned.
If Covid-19 has given us anything positive.
It is a new appreciation of how we need one another to withstand such forces and thrive, despite the pain.
