That's what it's all about.
The reason for Easter is that Jesus died on the cross and rose again
in order to get humanity connected to God again.
Sin was in the way, pride was in the way, hate and apathy was in the way.
By connecting us to God, strangely, it also made us connected to each other.
That's how you describe a body.
The Western world has always been disconnected in the 21st century.
The technology that united us in spirit actually disconnected us from our dinner tables, our neighbors, and ironically, from our facebook friends.
Our quarantine has made that fact excruciatingly apparent.
Getting 10 "likes" on facebook isn't the same as spending time with friends.
This is a small disadvantage in work-from-home environments, but it's almost impossible to do church-from-home.
The first sermon series when we get back to our church building is "Sharing Jesus by Caring for People." sound familiar? that's our motto, our theme, our mission in this community. I believe that's more important now than ever in our country. But how do we connect in an era of social distancing? I don't know. I'm trying to figure that out too, as I try different things.
