… Love One Another

Be kind. Be Gracious. The situation, and people, are going to get fraught. Be salt and light. Keep yourself close to God. Keep watch over yourself. (There’s some hints about supporting your own mental health at https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/publications/looking-after-your-mental-health-during-coronavirus-outbreak). Support others, but also receive support yourself.

Be an example and a good influence, whether at home, in the shops or online.
