Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18).
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:14).
Dear friends in Christ,

The past weeks have seen a significant surge in positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. The city of Chicago has recently reinstated stricter rules on dining out, nonessential work, and social gatherings.
