Churches are closed, season of hope is open

To the Editor:

I just wanted to encourage everyone during this COVID-19 pandemic facing our world. We must not lose the meaning of Easter season. It is the most spiritual season of the year. It is the season of hope.

Nothing else compares to the “message of the empty tomb.” God does not give us the spirit of fear! More people attend Easter services than any other time of year. Although churches are closed, hope still springs eternal.

Jesus Christ is still risen from the grave and God still loves people and offers His Grace to all who wish to repent and serve Him. We must join hands and hearts to defeat our common enemy of COVID-19. This season is a window of opportunity to share our Faith in God to the entire world. Love, kindness and compassion are things we all desire. Only God can alter the destiny of humanity. Celebrate Easter with great zeal and determination.

COVID-19 will come and go but God will always be with us. Happy Easter to all and remember the “Message of the Empty Tomb” — “He is not here, but is risen.” Luke 24:6

Postmaster: Rules in place are to help workers stay safe

To the Editor:

The United States Postal Service is committed to delivering your mail and packages throughout the current pandemic. We are proud of our role in providing an essential service to every community. The one constant throughout this crisis has been our commitment to fulfilling the vital mission of the Postal Service.

We would like to share the following information and requests:

• USPS wants to help keep you — and our employees — safe. We ask for you to maintain a safe distance at all times. The Centers for Disease Control recommends keeping a distance of six feet or more between other individuals. Please allow a safe distance between you and your letter carrier or post office clerk while they are performing their duties.

• We know it is a challenge to find ways to connect with family and friends at this time. Please remember anything without postage and not related to USPS business should not be placed in mailboxes.

• It is important to note the CDC, the World Health Organization, and the U.S. Surgeon General have all said there is very low risk that this virus is being spread through mail.

Our mission to bind the nation together is achieved through the tireless efforts and sacrifices of our dedicated employees. The outpouring of support you have shown has had a great impact on everyone at the Postal Service. Knowing how much you care means everything to us. One behalf of all employees at your Local Post Office — Thank you.
