Week 16 Day 3
Finding God in the Mysteries of every day
Hebrews 10: 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
I have been frankly surprised at the notion of some that the days if church meetings are at an end, and even a little more concerned that in general I do not see church leadership working to find solutions for the situation created in large part by the current Coronavirus pandemic. With the advent of facebook live, zoom meetings, skype, go to meeting, and a myriad of other opportunities the possibilities are endless. Some of this atmosphere hearkens back toa time when the church was largely an underground movement. Persecuted, hunted, executed the early church thrived in a way that we cannot fathom. Notwithstanding the medieval corruption of the church for political and monetary gain people found a way in the first three centuries to “make church happen”
I have yet to hear of a virtual prayer meeting. But, why not? Has communion in this way been sacrificed on the altar of convenience? I believe it is through corporate prayer that we may draw closer to knowing the heart of God in these times. Whether it is done through texting or e-mail or virtual meetings we should, I believe, follow in every way possible the admonition of the writer to the Hebrews above.
