The meditations were written for a small church caught in the Covid-19 outbreak in the mid-Hudson region of New York State. The author describes how biblical themes in general, and Christ’s life, in particular, provide resilient hope during the pandemic. Throughout, the author offers insight, along with practical steps to thrive rather than survive. Dr. Gram discusses ways to manage fear, grief, and negativity. He explores the rise of self-defeating behaviors, and how to overcome them. The reader is challenged to simplify life, like Jesus, so that overlooked daily blessings can be celebrated. The author also provides understanding of how coronavirus distorts our understanding of reality. Each meditation begins with Scripture and ends with a brief prayer. Generally Dr. Gram suggests the pandemic forges our character in ways a pre-coronavirus world could not. The book offers comfort to anyone undergoing great stress, regardless of its cause.
