This can be a useful reflection on concern and worship. “My father surprised me one night by telling me he liked thunder. I didn’t like thunder. Thunder made me feel like unseen powers were about to crush my bedroom between their hands. Thunder made me rise and go to my dad and quietly say, ‘I’m scared.’ He came to sit with me for a few minutes while it passed. That’s when he told me he liked thunder. He liked feeling its awesomeness, its greatness.”
As all the time, watch out what you learn and consider. “Two weeks ago, national and world health authorities—and armchair experts and worried well-meaning people—were warning anyone concerned about Covid-19 to avoid ibuprofen. Now, facing contradictory evidence, they’ve backed off that claim.”
I loved Jonathan Szeto’s ideas on the immigrant church. “This is the immigrant Christian church in America. It has a right to exist because language is a natural barrier to gospel community.

With the vast majority of church buildings seeming to live-stream their companies (together with my very own), I used to be glad to learn this considerate dissenting perspective on the matter. “Some people have asked if we are going to host a live stream service. For now the answer is no, though that could change in the future. Below are some of the reasons we have decided not to provide a live stream worship service.”
Chris Cagle covers the financial wreckage that has adopted the coronavirus outbreak. “We have to do not forget that God doesn’t make a promise that we’ll all the time be wholesome or will preserve the identical life-style we have now now. Nor does he say that we’ll maintain all that we have now (or might have had ought to issues have been totally different). However He has promised that He will likely be with us and can all the time present for us.”
I don’t suppose we should always return to utilizing hymnals. However I do suppose there’s worth in contemplating what we misplaced when, over the course of a comparatively quick time period, we gave up hymnals for PowerPoint projection.
