PHOTO GALLERY: COVID-19 Affects Businesses Across the STL Area

The coronavirus pandemic has affected everyone’s lives in different ways. Businesses are no exception, as they have been forced to adjust to COVID-19. Some businesses can afford temporary shutdowns, while others have been forced to close their doors forever. Whether it is totally closing or shifting to online orders, St. Louis businesses are constantly working to navigate through this historic period, and this Photo Gallery spotlights this struggle in the STL business community.

The Apple Store in West County Mall, usually bustling with customers during normal times, recently had this sign posted in its window, stating simply, “Closed until further notice.” While Apple, one of the largest companies on Earth, can sustain the pandemic and has returned to at least allowing customers to pick up items they have ordered online, other businesses find themselves not nearly as fortunate.      Photos by Carter Mize

The Sugarfire Smokehouse restaurant in O’Fallon, Missouri, displays a sign encouraging customers to call ahead with their orders and offering free delivery.

Have Faith, Get Out of the Boat and Trust God in Your Challenges

The biblical story in Matthew Chapter 14 reminds us about the importance of having faith in Jesus Christ when the waters of life threaten to consume us. As Jesus walked on the lake to greet his disciples in their fishing boat, many were afraid they were seeing a ghost, but Peter knew it was Jesus and got out of the boat to walk on the water to Him. As long as Peter’s faith was strong, his footing on the water was firm, but when he got nervous and took his eye off Jesus, he began to sink. This true story reminds us to keep our eyes on Christ during times of doubt, and this is the topic of today’s blog, asking writers to give their opinions on what this biblical story means to them personally.
