First, below is a link to information concerning Emmett Fox, a spiritual leader of the early 20th century.
Matthew, a very good, long term, friend of mine sent me the below Emmett Fox writing. It seems to be appropos to what we are seeing and living through today in terms of COVID-19.
The world is not going to the dogs. The human race is not doomed. Civilization is not going to crash. The Captain is on the bridge. Humanity is going through a difficult time, but humanity has gone through difficuties many times before in its long history, and has always come through, strengthened and purified.
Do not worry yourself about the universe collapsing. It is not going to collapse, and anyway that question is none of your business. The Captain is on the bridge. If the survival of humanity depended upon you or me, it would be a poor lookout for the Great Enterprise, would it not?
The Captain is on the bridge. God is still in business. All that you have to do is to realize the Presence of God where trouble seems to be, to do your nearest duty to the best of your ability; and to keep an even mind until the storm is over.
The above passage is from his book, Around The Year with Emmett Fox, September 5th (my birthday). Please see the below link. (shortened by Andrej)
Food for thought.

Two very recent photos sent from Irkutsk, Russian Siberia, by a friend.
This (5th Army) is the street we lived on while in Irkutsk.
A foot path we walked along MANY times.
But a few of the many GREAT memories we have of Irkutsk.
