“You understand, O Lord, remember me and care for me.” ~Jeremiah 15:15
Pills are often considered the first line of defense but with colds and flu, they will not help since antibiotics are for bacterial infections only and cold/flu germs are viral infections. Some think antibiotics help with symptoms but inappropriate use of medication only trains germs to become drug resistant. This means that when you do need the drug, it will be ineffective and you will need a more expensive, stronger drug – if one is available. Whenever you do receive a prescription, use it as directed and complete the course to be sure to kill all the bacteria in your system. Using your meds incorrectly only hurts you physically and financially.
“One in Christ” is the theme of the 2023 Bishop’s Appeal, and I believe this message is more important than ever as we work toward unity in our Church and in our society. In that spirit, I ask you to consider the many ways the Appeal unites the diocese in service, compassion, and faith.
