Who do I need to be?

Who do I need to be in the midst of this pandemic?

Like most things right now, the answer is this — I don’t know. There’s answers I could give. There are answers I should probably give. There are expected answers.

But I wonder — are they the right answers? I don’t know.

There are some things that I am regardless of whether a pandemic is going on or now. I’m a husband and father. I’m a pastor. I’m a writer. I’m a strategist. I’m someone who loves to learn and explore. I’m someone who enjoys challenges and will deal with conflict directly.
