In the midst of this isolation though, I have read several stories about people finding new ways to get together in the midst of celebration. This morning our worship service was broadcast on a live YouTube broadcast. We in Innisfail were actually joined by some of my friends in Australia, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia. A friend of mine in Illinois had a virtual cocktail party where 10 friends held a delightful evening of conversation in their own homes. Some churches are having virtual coffee houses where people check in with one another (we will be trying this soon). Some neighbours are putting up Christmas lights to spread cheer in the community. Some neighbours are putting notes in windows to communicate.
