The World Upside-Down March 2020 Right now, it feels like the world is being turned upside down. Even for the most confident among us, the recent coronavirus crisis has challenged much of what we thought was certain. It raises the question: How should the church respond in such an unprecedented time? In the midst of uncertainty and fear, the gospel still shines as a message of hope, light, and life. In fact, the early church’s commitment to the gospel made them so distinct that others said of them, “These men and women have turned the world upside down” (cf. Acts 17:6). In these upside-down times, we have a unique opportunity to share and show the love of God.
