I was doing a bit of reading on how churches handled the shut-down during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918-1919. The similarities between that and today’s COVID-19 shut down are remarkable. The churches tried to be as creative as possible to continue to minister even though they were not allowed to meet in person. One Pastor wrote a piece in the local newspaper urging people to use this time, when they are forced to stay home, for positive meditation, as talked about in the Bible. Here is a portion of his article, using as his text Genesis 24:63: “And Isaac went out to meditate in the field toward evening; and he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, camels were coming.”
Meditation is very profitable for the soul, but the rush of the world is so great at present that very little time is given to cogitation and reflection. Men think they have no time to walk out in the fields for contemplation, or to sit quietly by the fireside and muse.
However, we have a God-given opportunity for this helpful indulgence by reason of this unique Sabbath which has dawned upon us. Out of necessity our churches are closed, and all public gatherings must be discontinued. We cannot go motoring, and we would not go to business if we could, and even the fields are dangerous lest we should come in contact with goldenrod and ragweed and take influenza. But we can sit by the fire and give ourselves to thought and reflection which will bring great profit to us.
- Rev. Fletcher Parrish
Meditating is something talked about a lot in the Bible – just taking the time to think about the things of God, think about the Word of God and what it says, and to converse with God. We should probably all do more of that.
With Love, Pastor Glenn
