Letting Someone Else be the Hero of the Story

Christianity is, at its essence, a willingness to let Someone else be the hero of the story.

I find this immensely comforting, because right now I am anything but the hero. In fact, the overwhelming feeling is helplessness.

As I write this we are in the second week of social distancing from Covid-19. People in our church are losing their jobs and one has already lost a business. Our Bible school students had 24 hours to say goodbye to their friends and teachers before they had to pack up and go home. There are no Sunday services, no Bible studies, and no in-home fellowships. My texts and phone calls and Facebook messaging just frustrate me. People need presence, not another “ding” from their phones. My heart cries that this just won’t do. But I am helpless.

About Sarah Johnson

Sarah has been a pastor's wife in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Utah County, the center of Mormonism. She can't think of two more opposite places in the US, but each has been a special joy. She has 5 children and spends most of her time homeschooling and ministering alongside her husband at Fellowship Bible Church. Sarah loves the great outdoors and feeding people and agrees with C.S. Lewis that, "you can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me."
