Like everyone, this fall was by far the most bizarre and tragic and challenging of my years in ministry. It also might have been the most Biblical.
One of the things that difficult times do is separate us from the certainty that we know how to do everything right. And so during that time, with the support of my amazing colleague, I pitched the idea of trying something new: I bought of a couple of decently rated microphones off the internet; I researched some open-source audio editing software; got a free account on Buzzsprout; and we launched a podcast. We talked briefly about what we hoped for, sketched out a script and some liturgy to help frame it, and then—like so much of ministry right now—we just hit “record.”
That’s how long it has been since we were last in one space together. How long it’s been since we passed bread from hand to hand, lifted our voices in unison, welcomed the children running back in into worship eager to share what they had learned about God while we listened to a sermon and prayed together.
And yet, it has been longer than that since some of those whom we love who have been able to join us in the sanctuary. Those who have received worship DVDs or have watched us on Channel 18 for years. Those who have long known what it means to be part of something from a distance and have courageously practiced the public discipline of worship, prayer, confession and stewardship week after week without the shelter of a large building and the ready companionship of hundreds of others.
