This week I’ve been thinking about heroes.

My earliest heroes were not people from TV or even storybooks; they were Bible characters like David, Daniel, Esther, and the “Three Worthies” who were thrown into the burning fiery furnace—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego!

I loved the stories about these heroes and what they stood for. It seemed as if there was nothing that they were afraid of. In today’s environment, I find myself thinking about them again and again.

Mis primeros héroes no eran personajes de la televisión o de revistas de cuentos. Fueron los personajes de la Biblia —David, Daniel, Ester, los tres jovencitos que fueron echados al horno encendido: Ananías, Azarías y Misael.

Me encantaban sus historias y la razón de las mismas. Me parecía que no había nada a lo que tuviesen miedo. En el ambiente actual, no puedo dejar de pensar en ellos.

As a healthcare organization serving the Washington, D.C., region, Adventist HealthCare is on the front lines during this uncertain and difficult time, providing care and comfort when people need it the most. The Mission of Adventist HealthCare, to extend God’s care through the ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing, has never been more important as we face this challenge of caring for the community we serve.

One of the things I learned from my parents is how important it is to begin each day with prayer. Those prayers were simple – just a few words, but they were words that mattered. And I’ve made it a part of my life.

For some, prayer may be very formal–a ritual that fulfills an obligation. For some, it is barely spoken as they silence the alarm and hit the ground running. I know someone who says he prays in the shower each morning, and someone else who says she doesn’t say anything to anyone, including God, until she has her coffee cup in hand.
