Churches should be different. “Light of the world.” “City on a hill.” They should remind me “the light shines in the darkness and the darkness shall not overcome it.” It’s where I heard I’m “IN the world, not OF it.”

So when churches opened with a “Virus Venue” (distancing, communion in pews, and worse), I deep-sixed that! I fell lower than “the valley of the shadow of death.” How is that different from the world — even “T.V. church?” (Caution? I only get 250 words.) All I see is reinforcing fear. “God did not give us a spirit of timidity.” It’s at restaurants, stores, and work I now encounter “the communion of saints.”
