Way to go Presiding Bishop Michael Curry! He said. This is one time we can show our love of God and do God’s will by not going to church on Easter Sunday. Love thy neighbor by keeping thy distance!
Now from me, a simple garden variety priest.
Say your prayers from home. Worship God from home. The power of the church is far, far more than people gathered in a building.
Don’t think of our churches being empty. Know that they are filled with the countless throngs of invisible saints who have gone before and now reside in Heaven. Our worship and prayers and the presence of God in our churches have hallowed our spaces and when the time is right our doors will once again be opened and only when the time is right will we gather once more.
A Blessed Easter to everyone of my family and friends. Stay home! Stay safe! Know that you are loved.
