Yesterday the whole campus received news suddenly in the afternoon that we had to leave the college for the threat of the coronavirus. Everyone dealt with it in different ways. There was massive partying last night, where people were incredibly drunk. I was sadder than I expected. Reading Psalm 69 this morning I felt the distress of the psalmist. However, then I realized that it was Jesus speaking through the psalm. “Zeal for thy house hath consumed me,” and “they gave me vinegar to drink.” I was moved to tears by how close our God, the Light from Light, is to our humanity.
