Ruth Bader Ginsburg died a week ago. Many are mourning her passing, and the timing of it. Fear is gripping the hearts of those who wonder what her replacement on the US Supreme Court will mean for human rights in the future.

Jesus has a message of reassurance for you in today’s edition of Anticipating AT1. From our inspirational message, to our thought-provoking AT Trending News, to our melodic moment of music, we trust this short program adds value to your week.

To keep our hope alive that one day we will be back together again, we are providing virtual meetings, with a new edition every Friday. Anticipating AT1 is 10-15 minutes long, and can be viewed at any time. We hope it prompts personal reflection, and is a discussion catalyst with your family and friends as you talk with them in the safe ways you connect during these unusual times.

Discussion Questions:

1. What fears are taking your breath away right now? Deteriorating health? No job? School challenges? Limited child care? Racial tensions? Closed churches?

2. Are you labeling the work of God as the work of the evil one in any area of your life?

3. Fear and stress affect everyone. No one can say they’ve never felt them. So what do you do to combat them? What are some effective and positive strategies that help you overcome fear and stress?

Be well, and love well.
