I, for one, was relieved when, finally, last night, decisive action was taken to move from 'please be good and do the right thing' to 'do as you are told'.
I mistakenly thought that people as a whole would be sensible and grown up, and only a couple of weeks ago was naive emough to believe this epidemic could be contained if only we were sensible. I was wrong. In this broken and disordered world, sin greed, finitude - and even well-intentioned naivety - have brought us to this place of lock down.
This morning I had a first attempt at recording a video to post on the church's Facebook page.
I haven't yet mangaed to get it to this blog, but for now, if you follow this link (it may take a while to load, and be sure to 'unmute') you will hopefully find it - and yes, I did cry at the end.
