Jehovah’s Witnesses across the world are offering families practical methods to cope emotionally and spiritually with the effects of the covid-19 pandemic.
The international organisation through its website jw.org, is featuring a video entitled ” Virus outbreaks—What can you do”.
In a press release signed and made available to Naijaexaminer in Ibadan, by Olusegun Eroyemi , the spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses, the three-minute whiteboard animation video offers families practical assistance on how to cope emotionally and spiritually with the effects of the disease .
According to the release, few events in modern history have harmed the emotional well-being of people around the world as has the COVID-19 pandemic.
He explained that the threat of contracting or transmitting a life-threatening disease and the added challenges of anxiety and isolation have had an immeasurable impact on people of all backgrounds.
While listing some of the features of the video, Eroyemi noted that since the pandemic began, jw.org has featured information designed to assist people of all ages and backgrounds to remain calm, informed, and healthy.
He said that with content in an unprecedented 1,027 languages, the site also addresses often-asked questions and points to the Bible’s assurance of a bright future.
” Links to seven practical tools on jw.org: Virus outbreaks—what you can do, how to beat pandemic fatigue, how to deal with isolation,
can the Bible help me if I’m depressed? , anxiety in men—how the Bible can help, when staying home isn’t safe, and what does the Bible say about pandemics.
“Since the outbreak of the pandemic, many have felt that their life is slipping out of their control. The material on jw.org helps people of all ages and backgrounds to successfully govern their feelings by using the timeless wisdom found in the Bible,” he said.
Eroyemi added that those who do not have a Bible can download a copy or read it free of charge on jw.org—no sign-up or personal information is required.
