Well it is done. We had a service of communion and then a combined zoom/church service. I am exhausted so I can’t say too much about it.
At one point in the combined service we had some technical problems with the sound, producing a nasty snarl of feedback. Fortunately the real feedback; from the people who came either virtually or in person, was far more positive.
I wrote in the service register, the first entry since 15th March. I’ve always been a bit cavalier about filling in the service register, but no more. Where next I don’t really know, but we have made a real step forward today and it was good to see people in the church, as I am sure people in pubs, shops, restaurants and salons will also feel.
I began this blog because the churches had been shut to public worship and as that is a major part of my job and role that left me feeling disorientated, struggling to find an anchor. This blog been a very good anchor, sometimes motivating me to get up and do something because I knew I would have to write something at the end of the day.
As I said a couple of weeks ago, I’m going to keep going but I no longer feel committed to producing an entry every evening. We, along with others have crossed a major hurdle, but the journey is far from over. Goodnight and God Bless.
