God chose what the world considers low-class and low-life — what is considered to be nothing — to reduce what is considered to be something to nothing. - 1 Corinthians 1:28 (CEB)

While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
