The Contemplative Cottage – attending deeply to Life
Start with one person. Make a call. Send a text. Ask: How are you doing?
The online world can be a great place to connect. It can also deepen a sense of isolation.
Instead of spending these next days getting the latest tech and streaming options set-up, I would encourage communities to start connecting with congregation members personally, consistently and regularly, using analog/old school options first. Then, turn attention to new tech and online options.
Finally, this kind of connection will be a reminder that no matter if we are physically present with each other, we are connected by the Holy Spirit, and incorporated into the Body of Christ. We are never alone, but always persons-in-community, part of the great cloud of witnesses past, present and future, connected in Jesus Christ.
