In light of the COVID-19 crisis and its wide ranging impacts, we want to update you on Lexham Press.
Our team is still going strong. Fortunately, in our digital age, most of us can continue to work remotely from home. Our production schedule is still on track, we are still printing books, and we continue to ship out orders placed through our website.
Some of you may have received emails from Amazon indicating that our books have been delayed. To be clear, this refers only to Amazon’s order processing as they prioritize shipping essential medical and household products. Our website, as well as other online booksellers such as Christianbook, Barnes & Noble, and WTS books are also able to fulfill your orders.
As we move ahead in difficult and uncertain times, we’re thinking of creative ways to engage in this time of social distancing.
We look to pastoral counsel. Harold Senkbeil, a pastor for over four decades and author of The Care of Souls, has recently written about community in plague time.
When we need words to pray, we often look to our predecessors in the faith. This prayer in times of suffering by Puritan Robert Hawker (1753–1827) may help provide the needed words:
So when my poor heart is afflicted, when Satan storms, or the world frowns, when I suffer sickness, or when all your waves and storms seem to go over me, what relief it is to know that you, Jesus, see me. And that you care!
So help me, Lord, to look to you, and remember you. And oh! That blessed Scripture: “In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them; in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.” Amen.—Robert Hawker
Stay safe and stay healthy.
