Our pastor and elders finally agreed to hold an outdoor service beginning this past Sunday, and it was a real joy to see many of our fellow members for the first time in almost a year. It was a much better experience than the livestream we've had for the past eleven months. Still, it was sad to see how few we were in number. A year ago, we had two nearly-full services indoors on Sunday mornings. This week we had less than a quarter as many in attendance.
By way of contrast, another church whose livestream we also watch, has continued to meet indoors for the past year, and still has a full house for each of three services. Last Sunday, they even had a full choir on stage.
Cowering in fear turns out not to be a good way to motivate people to come to Christ.
