I had a lengthy discussion last week with a gentleman about online worship vs. in person worship. Our conversation was about the importance of being together – and I urge people to participate in worship in person as soon as they are comfortable doing so. He said to me, “This is not really the way it should be, but I feel like you are going to have to sell the value of fellowship to people.”
Fellowship with others is vitally important. Our Creator hard-wired us to be with others. And, not only to be with them, but to have deep, lasting, fulfilling relationships. Those relationships are greatly enhanced when we are in person with one another at church.
I want to share with you a blog, written by Tim Philpot, that was published by the Links Players. That’s a golf blog. The ironic thing is that I am the furthest thing from a golfer you will ever find, but the insights are spot on. Rick Kessler periodically sends me the Links Players blog, and I appreciate it. I think you will gain a greater appreciation for how much we need each other.
