And just like that, everything changed. We are living in a very different world then we were a month ago. Over the weekend we noticed how quiet the streets were, and only a third of our usual church family were out on Sunday.
On Monday, as is my habit, I worked at A & W with a coffee. Between 7:45 and 9:00 there were three other customers, and they were a group. Every other table and booth had been closed to allow for social distancing, a term I had never heard before this month.
Schools, concerts and professional sports have been cancelled and cruise ships around the world have been tied up.
at the end of the day if we think the government overreacted then it worked.
This week, Cornerstone will begin worshipping online. We aren’t cancelling church; we are just changing how we do church.
Not everything has changed. God is still God. The Father still loves us, Jesus is still our Saviour, and the Holy Spirit is still our comforter and helper. The church is still the church, and the greatest commandment is still the greatest commandment. Love God and love others.
We may have to change the way we worship, but we shouldn’t have to change the way we love God and love others.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is possible, you’ll have to attempt the impossible.
