Preliminary statement by SMD Chemnitz on the handling of Covid-19 (Corona virus) ENGLISH Version
Dear friends and fellow students,
the recent events concerning the spread of the SARS Cov-2 virus (hereafter referred to as the corona virus) in Germany have created major challenges for all of us. In order to stop a further rapid spread, the German Federal Government and the Government of the City of Chemnitz have now enacted measures banning public events with more than 1,000 persons and making public events with more than 100 persons subject to approval. It is explicitly recommended to stay at home if possible and to reduce contact with other people to the essentials.
For this reason, we at SMD Chemnitz are cancelling all public events in the clubroom until further notice. Everyone who has travelled in the last 14 days, especially outside Germany, should definitely stay at home as far as possible. Everyone who feels ill should initially contact a doctor by telephone. We as SMD can also help with this.
Please check daily on reliable sources of information about the current situation, which can also change constantly.
SMD Chemnitz is a Christian university group. We staff members are Christians who experience the love, grace and forgiveness of God every day in a new way and we are happy to share these things as much as we can. Therefore we usually organize the different events we invited to in the last semesters (topic nights, international nights, trips, etc.). But these events are not absolutely necessary. Much more important is: We want to be your friends, especially in times of trouble. SMD will continue regardless of the big events. Especially in these hard times we want to be there for each other and help each other.
We will make a video livestream on Wednesday at 19.00 o'clock, giving an insight into what helps us and gives hope in these times. We warmly invite everyone to join us, we will send the details (video link) later.
Moreover, we would like to help practically. If you have a problem, you feel lonely, sad or anxious, or you just want to talk to someone, you can always contact us. We have set up a phone number which will be also reachable at night. If you want to get the number, please contact us. Of course we can't give any medical advice, but for other problems we try everything possible to help.
In addition, if the situation allows it, we will organize small meetings at our homes or we will meet in twos to be there for each other and encourage each other. Furthermore, we can also arrange to go on hikes in nature or other outdoor activities, which are much safer. If you have the desire to meet with one of us, let us know. Safety is our highest priority, but we also try everything possible to continue to have communion.
Of course we will cooperate with the authorities, answer any requests and abide by the legal rules.
We do not know what the future will bring. We do not know how the situation will continue to develop. But we know that God is really able to help. He came into this world once before in Jesus, died for our guilt and rose again from the dead. Jesus solved the biggest problem mankind ever had, which was the separation of men and God. And he proved that even death does not have the ultimate word, but that there is hope even beyond it. He wants to come into our lives and become our friend and father.
In the Bible it is said:
"Call on me in the day of trouble, and I will save you, and you shall praise me" (Psalm 50:15).
We cordially invite you to this. What we have always discussed at SMD events, namely to trust and believe in God, we can now put into practice.
God bless you all!
The leadership of SMD Chemnitz
