I don’t need to tell you about the anxiety our country is feeling right now about the expectation that the Covid-19 virus will infect an increasing number of people in the near future. Our lives are all going to be disrupted for a bit, as large group gatherings are limited, canceling events, and seeing more people work from home.
However, in this disruption, we have an opportunity to take advantage of the break in people’s busy schedules. We can be persons of peace in anxious times. We can love our neighbors in new ways.
As we enter into this unexpected season, I encourage you and your congregation to consider what missional practices you can participate in. (Please take your own health and the health of your neighbors seriously, and if you have been exposed to the Covid-19 virus, or are feeling sick, do not meet in person with others). Here are some ideas:
If you are not able to attend corporate worship, I encourage you to take this opportunity to join one of Resonate’s partners for live-streamed worship. Here are a couple of options:
GVSU Campus Ministry: Online Facebook Live Campus Praise Rally: Sundays at 7 pm for the foreseeable future. Check their facebook page for instructions to connect. (This coming Sunday they will be sharing amazing stories of impact from their recent Spring Break Mission Trips!)
Encounter Church: Worship is this weekend at 9:15a and 10:45a @ EncounterChurch.org/online.
Resonate believes that the Spirit is already at work in our communities—even in the midst of crisis. I pray that you will be able to see the opportunities the Spirit is inviting you into over the next few weeks to love God and love your neighbors.
