The Coronavirus pandemic and the fact that people are locked in their homes has led to more and more Australians thinking about the big issues of life.
As the Anglican Dean of Sydney, Kanishka Raffel, put it last weekend – ‘we are asking big questions about who we are and what matters most and what we will do with the time that we’ve got when we get to the other side of this pandemic’.
But its bigger than what will we do when we don’t have to social distance anymore.
What do I really want in life? What is my life really for?
I have noticed these bigger questions being asked – maybe you have too.
But if you don’t believe me – then we have statistics too. The YouVersion Bible app is the most popular electronic version of the Bible. This Easter more than 50 million people read the Bible on the app and shared the message of Jesus.
Perhaps – if you are asking those questions, you can turn to the Bible too. It’s even on your mobile.
