In the wake of Christ’s death, it must have been tempting for the disciples to return to the old normal, to what they were always used to after the apparent tragedy of the Crucifixion. But Jesus does not call us into the past or ask us to go backwards. Rather, Jesus asks us to embrace a new and transformational new normalcy. 

In the midst of this pandemic/ and the real tragedy that it has been, we are encouraged to find in this new normalcy some measure of grace. People and nations are forced to work together, to see in one another their common humanity and their responsibility to each other. 

So how is God working even in this moment for you, your family, and your friends? What’s your new normalcy that you’re being called to?
