1352 Biblical Study While Living with Corona - Lesson 2 03/22/2020 Mark Lanier 03/22/2020 Mark Lanier Mark taught this week’s online class, Lesson 2 of Biblical Study While Living with the Coronavirus, from The Stone Chapel at The Lanier Theological Library. The number one issue facing most people during the worldwide pandemic is fear and uncertainty. The Bible speaks about these concerns. Those in biblical times shared similar anxieties: life, health, loved ones, jobs/finances, economy, life changes, supplies to exist, and more. Psalm 42 & 43 speaks to our concerns. The psalmist was having a tough time holding his stressful life together. He learned surviving emotional turmoil means engaging the head and not just the emotions of the heart. Even Jesus quoted passages from these Psalms while in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Mark points out that God isn’t finished with us yet. Let’s continually put our fears and uncertainties before God. 1
