Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are officially making the transition today from senior members of Britain’s royal family. However, the Associated Press reports that their future is “unclear. International celebrities, charity patrons, global influencers?”

In their final post from their now-mothballed SussexRoyal Instagram account, the couple said, “As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile. . . . What’s most important right now is the health and well-being of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic.”

Such “solutions” are being developed with escalating frequency today.

For instance, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expediting its review of diagnostic tests to combat COVID-19. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is likewise accelerating clinical trials for coronavirus vaccines.

Here’s the bad news: the US coronavirus death toll has passed three thousand victims. More than 160,000 people in the US are known to be infected with the virus—the highest number for a single country anywhere in the world. One model estimates that even with social distancing in place through May, around 82,000 people in the US could die from COVID-19 by August.

Since these Special Editions are intended to offer ways to fight fear with faith, let’s focus today on our fear that all we are doing will not be enough.

Despite monumental efforts by scientists, government agencies, private enterprise, and especially by our healthcare heroes, death tolls will continue to grow. We may lose someone we love. You may already have lost someone you love.

How do we trust God with our fears of inadequacy in light of this deadly threat?
