Love in the Midst of Pandemic (‘What Is This?’)
March 15 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am
Being the church in the midst of self-isolating behaviours is hard. On the one hand, a way to love our neighbour is to participate in ways that will slow the spread of COVID-19. This is a practical real world way to stand against an uncertain disease which disproportionately will impact certain segments of our congregation and city. On the other hand, the church is supposed to offer hope and humanity, contact and assurance of love. How does that happen without the people gathered? We have decided to cancel our regular Sunday morning gathering for this particular week, but also to launch our first attempt into an online platform. Although we will take each week (and day!) as it comes, this feels like an opportunity to make the best of several tensions for the time being.
Here are a few things you should know!
- You will need a reasonable internet connection.
- We plan to use a free app called Zoom to participate in an online gathering. You can download it on to your smart phone through the APP store. It can also be accessed through a standard computer, and added to your internet browser. You can do this anytime, but it will take a minute or two. In order to make Sunday morning as seamless as possible it’s our suggestion to do it sooner rather than later.
- If it isn’t working or you have any questions, this Facebook Event Page is the place to post questions, ask for help, and have conversations in regards to getting Zoom working.

Or perhaps we will learn of a way to reach across quarantines to cultivate love in each other’s hearts. Regardless, we will learn something in the process. Come participate with us in this experiment, let’s talk about how we can learn from anxiety and uncertainty.
