The Church doesn't cease being the Church when it can't go to church. Make sense? Look, its hard to understand our individual roles as the hands and feet of Christ when our immediate sense of community feels taken from us. This is just my two-cents here, but I think it is OKAY to feel an initial sense of discouragement. Worship on Facebook is nice, but its not the same as hearing the chorus of voices on a Sunday morning. However, our relationship with God does not stop in the absence of our public gathering. We are still called to save the lost during this confusing moment in history. But how do we do that? This is by no means an exhaustive list, and my goal is to update this as our local church figures things out together. My prayer for all of this is an attitude of humble positivist that rests on the assurance of a grace and salvation that does not change, no matter what.
