Church is one of those things we may not think is too important until we are forced to think about what it is like when we can’t go. The two congregations it is my joy to serve, Knox Presbyterian and St. Mark’s Presbyterian, considered what it might mean to do without church for however long this is going to go on and decided we needed to find a way to get together safely. Enter the internet. Today’s church service happened over an online service called Zoom and it was, if not perfect by any means, a meaningful church service.
The Lectionary texts lent themselves well (see what I did there?) to what is happening in the world these days. The sermon title is “When we are in darkness” which is the experience for many of us. The great thing is while we are in darkness, we are never alone. Let me make that clearer, we are NEVER alone in the darkness. We have our communities, we have our faith, we have God. We ALWAYS have God.
If there is any way I can be helpful to you in these days, please get in touch with me. I have many gifts but reading minds isn’t one of them.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay connected.
PS I am making no predictions on sermon length as we continue worshiping together online . . . but this one is pretty short
