Remember Saint Nicholas on this St. Nicholas Day Eve! All of Nicholas’ life gave glory to God. He truly lived the two great commandments: to love God and to love neighbor. Nicholas’ protection and rescue of women and children, his feeding of the hungry, and his care for all in need, show us how to live. May we, like Nicholas, so live the way of God’s love for all our neighbors, respecting the dignity of every human being. Then as we work to feed the hungry and free the oppressed, our lives, like Nicholas’, will give glory to God.
Easter Day, April 12, 2020 at Advent Church, Taipei. That day is also remembered as the last day there were any cases of Covid-19 domestic transmission here in Taiwan – since then all cases have been ‘imported’ from overseas and contained on entry into Taiwan. So we’re now at 237 days with no domestic transmission, and daily life continues mostly as normal. Total numbers so far are 690 confirmed cases and 7 deaths. Praise where praise is due ~ Kudos to the Taiwan Government for the way they’ve handled this pandemic.
