The church is learning to suffer, to be patient, to be creative, to bear with one another in this time so that when we can gather again in the fullest expression of our corporate identity and vocation, we will be more welcoming, humble, grateful, loving, trusting.

The practices we are currently engaged in and the way we are “doing church” have their rightful place in our current reality, and are certainly being used by God to give us grace. Yet, they are a preparation, not a replacement, for the fullness of the embodied & gathered life of the Church.
