In this pandemic of COVID-19, Grace P. Cho sheds light on what the experience has been for those of Asian heritage in America and how leadership, unity and empathy are needed now to stand against fear.
The COVID-19 pandemic is illustrating at a granular level, discord in our communities that highlights American division. If a global health threat poses the greatest risk to the least of those amongst us, who are we as the Church if we can’t unify to protect them? If we can’t unify across political chasms, racial divides, and socio-economic statuses, then who are we as a nation?
We are called to lead. When you rest in the assurance of Christ’s power over death we are reminded that we are more than conquerors. It is the Church—the people of God—that are on the frontline, and we do not back down, even from a pandemic.
