3 John 13 I have much to write you, but I do not want to do so with pen and ink. 14 I hope to see you soon, and we will talk face to face.

            Perhaps at no other time in the history of humanity have people ever found themselves so isolated from one another. We speak of networking, but let’s face it we all feel safer behind the anonymity of our electronic lives/ How then do we understand and capture the spirit of John’s statement here. The book of 3 John is very personal and relational and gives us insight into the out-workings of John’s heart for the Church. The blow inflicted by Covid 19, delta, omicron, on the worship patterns of God’s Church seems to have discouraged many and driven many others into some sort of vicarious online participation in worship. While the encouragement factor is okay, I suppose, the faccia a faccia dynamic is to a large degree missing. What do you suppose John might have wanted to share with Gaius that he would not or could not write about?

  1. Ummm. Face to face, in this day and time – people seem to prefer the electronic face better – but it can create misunderstanding because we do not see or hear 2 vital GOD given senses that help us to understand one another. Especially when communicating words of emotional origin.

    1. My feelings run from regret to hope. What will the future bring? Comfortable memories don’t really seem to be a reasonable hope for the future.
