Informally minister to each other.
We can still communicate with each other in a variety of ways, including phone calls, text messages, emails, social media, and in person when appropriate. Make sure to be thoughtful & prayerful about any needs anyone has as a result of current events.
Romans 12:10-13 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
