Church Facilities In A Post-Coronavirus World
The discussion of how and when to return to a sense of normalcy following the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved into a somewhat polarizing one. Everyone seems to have an opinion on the matter and the endless media coverage seems to come at us from every angle.
There is also a plethora of information available to church leaders, ranging from ways to do online church and engage more effectively with members digitally, to how to go about re-opening church again. Pastors have undoubtedly been overwhelmed with daily emails and online ads offering strategies, recommendations and expert opinions.
Even though there is a wide range of opinions on whether the total shut-down of the economy during this crisis was the correct response and even more disagreement on the length of the shut-down, we are reminded in God’s Word that it’s not really about us. Regardless of our own opinions on the matter, we must be willing to consider the needs and concerns of others before our own, particularly when it comes to health and safety.
