Where do we go from here?

We’re not going back. Everything has changed. The question now is how we make a better world? Compassion and community, perhaps contemplation, are key to this.

The church will never be the same. When have we ever not held Sunday services where we gather at least in small numbers to pray, learn, preach, praise, encourage? In 50 years as a pastor, I never cancelled more than one Sunday and then only because of a major winter storm. Now it’s been 9 weeks already.

How do show compassion to people? How do we build community? How does contemplation undergird everything else? These are questions I will explore on this blog and with the church I pastor now. I invite you to join me.
