I’m so thankful for the internet! When I woke up this morning, I could hardly wait for the time for worship with our family and friends at Northridge Friends in Wichita. And then we worshipped with my home church, Mt. Ayr Friends, while we walked two miles in the neighborhood. The distance seemed so much shorter than usual! After we got home, it was time to “meet” with our Yuma family at Desert Grace Community Nazarene. All the while, we were aware of God’s presence! The internet doesn’t care that I can’t sing like I used to or even if I don’t know all the words. I don’t think God cares about those things, either! Maybe later I’ll watch Adam Kemper at Northwest Community Friends in Tucson.
The buildings may be empty, but the people, the REAL church, are doing their job. Jesus told the disciples that they would do greater things than he had done and that’s hard to do sitting in our “assigned” places in a sanctuary. Sometimes it’s messy out there, but we’re doing our best. The church has left the building!
