The Pandemic and Big Changes

The COVID Pandemic and the early lockdowns which were put in place to mitigate its spread led to so many changes in the ways we go about our lives. Zoom meetings and all forms of virtual get-togethers became common, for example.

The changes most certainly have affected the ways the Church goes about its business. Especially when it comes to “gathering” for worship.

It would be hard to overstate how big and thorough-going these changes are and will be for how the Church operates. This article from Religion News Service treats shines a light on this issue and it’s well-worth the next few minutes of your day.

Changes come. We adapt. The Church adapts.

We move forward, hopefully, into our future.

Friday Funny for January 24th

I once heard of a preacher who found a novel approach to a never-ending task which ministers must master to keep the church alive and moving forward.

Here’s what he had to say to the congregation one Sunday morning:

“Brothers and sisters, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that we have enough money to meet our goal for this year’s pledge drive”.

“The bad news is”, he continued, “The bad news is that it’s all still in your pockets!”

May you experience God’s abundance in your life today!
