A COVID Morning at Church

“This is certainly not the priesthood that I sought. I really do like the outfits. But it is the priesthood to which I am currently called. Just because this time is lousy in many ways, doesn’t mean that I am not responsible for the care and support of my people. And so we Zoom church. And we bless cars. And we have logistically difficult, candlelit, masked, graveside visits. And we baptize outside. And we empty our outreach coffers to support the food pantries in our area. And we thank God for the blessings of this life, even as we watch too much news and pray for the sick and those who tend them. Apparently, we can’t help but be the church right now. Thanks be to God.”
