Right now, we are being asked to wait to resume our"normal" lives. COVID has changed so much. Some things are opening up a little bit. There are though heavy restrictions. We can gather in slightly larger groupings, but we need to maintain social distance. Churches could hold gatherings of up to fifteen people but there will be no coffee, no handshakes, no hugs, no singing. It would hardly be "normal." And pity poor number 16. They would not be let in the door. We as church are not good at turning away people. So we wait. We don't like it. We can think of so many other things we would like to do- meet in person, shake hands, give hugs, catch up over tea and a cookie, and so many other things. We have to wait. Blessings.
