Here in Belvoir Church we are trying to…
RETHINK – what does it mean to be church since we can no longer gather in large groups and maybe not even in small groups.
REPLACE – we have decided not to cancel anything. Rather we are going to try to replace what we did before, and even what we had planned, with other things that we can do. I have already had a choir practice and a prayer meeting on my phone. Mothering Sunday flowers will come to you rather than you come to them. Wait till you see what we are doing on Sunday!
REVIEW – We have already seen the situation changing and arrangements for life having to be changed. Let’s agree now that change is here to stay. Let’s respond and adapt as we go along.
RENEW – one day things will be improving, and we will want to embrace what we have learned and become, rather than simply return to the way we were. I may never go back to watching paint drying on my TV screen, now that I have realised how much I don’t need to watch it.
Anyway, let’s see how God works with us through these challenging days to create a new church and maybe even a new nation and world.
