We are on the threshold of a new era; of new ways of doing church, of being with people. Will we go back to the “old way?” Perhaps, but not in the near future. This new era is teaching us all sorts of things: that when push comes to shove, the vast majority of people are kind and doing what they can to help their fellow humans; that we humans need to be with one another; that we are truly interdependent; and ultimately, that love wins.
As we cross into this new era, the new threshold, we can decide how we live out our Principles, how we can transform our lives and our communities. When our amygdala wants us to either crawl under a rock and stay there, or cry out in frustration “to heck with social distancing!” We can think with our hearts and our heads and say, “No: I choose love.”
May you all choose love,
