Jesus Shall Reign
Jesus shall reign where’er the sun Does his successive journeys run; His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, Till moons shall wax and wane no more.
Last time I wrote this column, we were beginning to hear about this thing called COVID-19 and I reflected then on the backlash in America and especially in Europe, against Asian members of those societies, all because of news reports suggesting that the virus had its origins in China. No one could have predicted just a year ago, how our world would be affected at every level by this pandemic. New words have been coined to describe what we live in, from “conspiracy theory” to “new normal” to “unmute” to “lockdown” and “zoom”, which is not something one does in a hurry. We have seen politicians struggle to lead effectively in territory none has ventured into before.
We have witnessed huge change in just about everything that has been our security in the past and many can testify to experiencing things that we never thought possible in our lifetime. In this period, I have welcomed two grandsons into the world and I realise that they will grow up never knowing a pre-covid world, such is the scope of changed reality for all of us. Depending on what our departure point is in regard to our faith, we can see this state of affairs either as cause for real anxiety or as an
incredible opportunity to demonstrate the reality of what we claim as followers of Christ.
