God Our Healer Series – Guide to Wellness
When the Lord God created Adam and Eve, he envisioned a great future for them and their children. His hope was that they would prosper and be in good health. And, to this end he gave them a manual for living, first orally and eventually written down for all of their descendants.
From the beginning of human experience, God knew the challenges and pitfalls to avoid in order to have physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. So through stories, direct teachings, and commands, he revealed information that would produce wellness and eliminate illness. The God our Healer Series looks at many of the teachings that our Maker revealed through the scriptures and how he continues to work today as our Healer.

Lessons from COVID – 19
Our world is seemingly very fragile now, as stock markets, business, tourism, and education all react in panic to the declaration that COVID-19 is a pandemic. But this is not the first pandemic, nor will it be the last. So what wisdom can we gain and what action can we take when it comes to the spectre of contagious disease? The bible offers wisdom that can alleviate fear and give us positive steps to take to protect ourselves and our communities. Moses penned this advice millennia ago, but it is well worth reviewing.
