MASKS AND MARRIAGE

(March 17, 2021) Maureen McQuillan responds to a troubled young wife who wrote…

Dear Pastor Maureen
My marriage is becoming divided over the issue of wearing masks. I wear masks because it seems right to obey the laws.  My husband feels that to wear a mask is to cave into the fear rampant right now and submit to the control of a government that wants to close everything down from schools to churches.  My husband doesn’t even go inside stores or churches now.  How can we live together with some measure of peace?
Seeking peace,
