Willis-Knighton Creates Spiritual Life Blog to Support, Encourage Employees During COVID-19 Pandemic

Mar 25, 2020

Recognizing the importance and power of encouraging words during difficult times, Willis-Knighton’s Spiritual Life Services has created a blog that employees can access for hope and inspiration as the COVID-19 pandemic expands.

The blog is a collection of uplifting messages, prayers, words of gratitude and videos submitted by staff and contributors from the community, including clergy and laymen, says the Rev. Andrew Comeaux, director of Spiritual Life Services. Willis-Knighton staff can log onto the health system’s internal employee communications page from any work computer to access these spiritual messages.

Ron Johnson, pastor of Mission Point Baptist Church, submitted scripture and recognition of the valuable work performed by healthcare workers. Rabbi Jana De Benedetti of B’nai Zion Congregation submitted prayers of strength and thanksgiving for “God’s agents to help people heal” and prayers of healing for patients.

“During these days of uncertainty, reading inspirational quotes and words of support can help us fully understand that we will get through this trial. We will get through this difficult time,” the Rev. Comeaux says.

On most days, people can handle whatever life brings, he acknowledges, but in unprecedented days like the world is experiencing with COVID-19, we have to “dig deep in our faith and know that God will be there.  He will help us.”

Email submissions for the Spiritual Life blog may be sent to the Rev. Andrew Comeaux, acomeaux@wkhs.com.
