“Destruction stalks the city streets.” These words, found in Psalm 55:11, seem to describe life in June 2020. We are faced with death, disease, violence and injustice on a daily basis. Is there hope to be found in the words of the psalmist? Yes! Centuries ago, God’s people felt the same. They came through that time, the Messiah appeared, Christ rose from the dead and the Holy Spirit descended. Christ’s love and the gift of the Spirit are with us now. Hold fast!
