If you are a member of the body of Christ, what is more important than church? This question does not merit a quick response, but rather a deep contemplation. As you work your way through your own personal hierarchy of values, where does safety place?

By now we know how to keep safe and healthy. We know the risks of leaving home to partake in essential activities. Yet, many churches are still operating on the internet as if it were an online college degree. An online college degree with karaoke sessions that have replaced the spirituality of an echoing church hall filled with praise and worship.
