Physical Distancing, Not Isolation
One of many buzzwords that we've all heard over the last 3 months is "social distancing." I struggled with this phrase from the start but couldn't put my finger on why. Then someone pointed out to me that what we are really doing is "physical" distancing. We are keeping physical space between others and ourselves not in our immediate household. We were created in the image of God as social beings by our very nature. We have an innate need to interact with others. In fact the fulfillment of that need is the very reason that we have society. Social interaction is so important that we develop serious problems without it. Remember that as we are asked to keep physical distance from others we don't have to sacrifice human connection. So hug your family, smile at strangers, talk with each other in line at the grocery store. Share your struggles and stay connected to your friends and neighbors. Because, it's our connections with one another that lets in light, purpose, and fulfillment, and we can all use a bit more of that every day.
