Pastor's Weekly Wonder - May 2, 2020


Dear Friends,

I came across a new and useful word this week: Karunavirus. 

Karuna means “compassion” in Sanskrit, the ancient language of India and its religions. So a karunavirus would be “contagious or infectious compassion.” Its symptoms would be the decease of suffering and the spread of well-being.

Humans are known carriers of this virus. But it’s weak at first. It must be cultured to grow within one. It also requires being connected somehow with others in order to take effect and to spread.

People who have karunavirus find it much less necessary to wear masques. They seem to have immunity to negative energies. People who have it seem never to wash their hands of it.

What an easier, more joyful way to live! May I suggest we enculture going karunaviral?

See you soon, zooming at least.  Stay caring. Stay in touch.

Blessings for the week,
