The Coronavirus has forced us all into isolation, but there are some great ways to connect through social media.
We are living in a time of quarantine yet the world seems so much smaller. Everyday people are reaching out looking to play games, have some fun, and give a perspective from their windows.
Did you know that the World Health Organization is encouraging people to play video games amid the coronavirus pandemic?
Here is an article from Parade.com titled The 22 Best Online Games to Play With Friends During the Coronavirus Outbreak. You may have some of your own that you can recommend in the comments.
I have received invites from friends to do everything from photo challenges to online trivia contests.
There are suddenly a ton of quizzes to challenge you or you can list the Top 10 celebrities you have met.
What are you doing for fun these days?
Your point of view
One of my favorite activities that has come out of our captivity is how neighbors are connecting by singing out their windows.
Others are posting photos to share their view from a window.
I love music and it has been a wonderful distraction from our “Stay at home” lives.
Everything from recitals to benefit concerts are being used to help lift the spirits of all of us.
A lot of people find comfort in food.
Other than pictures of their pets, I think most of us post more photos of our food than anything else. This is a pre-COVID19 phenomenon that will probably out last all of us.
I am guilty of this and it drives my wife nuts. I’ve shared everything from my banana bread, chicken enchilada and peanut butter & jelly sandwich recipes to donuts.
Online meeting places like Zoom and GoToMeeting are getting very popular for gatherings other than work.
One of my friends is participating in a bible study using these platforms. Some men’s groups gather for fellowship through their laptops.
There’s no wrong way
Social media is a great way to stay connected with friends and family. For example, before the quarantine I was meeting regularly with my nephew through Skype. He was stationed in Japan.
We are designed for fellowship
God created us for fellowship. God created Adam because He wanted to share the world with him.
Do not let COVID19 isolate you more than it already has. Reach out to someone… Family… Friends… A church…
