Live Your Faith. Love Your Community.

Posted on January 25, 2022 by Published by

We are weary. We have lived with the COVID-19 pandemic for nearly two years and its end seems nowhere in sight.

Cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continue to surge at an alarming rate. Hospital beds are full. Wait times in our doctors’ offices and emergency departments are long. Our brothers and sisters – doctors, nurses and countless other healthcare professionals – who have skillfully and compassionately cared for our communities are hurting.

More than 90% of all COVID inpatients are unvaccinated or due for a booster.

As people of faith, God calls us to live in loving community with each other and keep one another from harm. We can do this by:

  • Getting vaccinated and boosted and encouraging members of your community to do the same. Schedule your vaccine today at:
  • Staying home and getting tested if you feel sick.
  • Wearing a mask in your house of worship and other indoor settings.
  • Seeking care at an immediate care setting in Illinois and Wisconsin or setting up virtual visits, rather than go to an emergency department, for less serious medical problems.

Taking these precautions fulfills the command – found in virtually all faith traditions – to love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:31).

It’s up to all of us to help. Because if we don’t, it’s going to get even harder for our family and friends to get help when they need it most.

The power is in our hands.

Together, let’s stop COVID.
