In 2020, Easter is going online
In Dr. Seuss’ book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, the Grinch tries to figure out how he can prevent Christmas from coming. He thinks if he steals all the presents, it won’t happen. He was wrong. Even after pilfering all the gifts from all the Who’s down in Whoville, they still come out of their homes on Christmas morning and sing with joy in their hearts.
It feels as if the same thing is happening with Easter this year. Because of the coronavirus global pandemic, and because of our efforts to maintain social distancing because of our love for our neighbors, it feels as if someone is trying to stop Easter from coming. Most, if not all churches in our community are no longer meeting in their buildings on Sunday mornings. Will this prevent Easter from coming? No, it won’t. Easter has simply changed locations. Instead of gathering in buildings with large groups of people, Easter has moved online, where we will gather with small groups of people.
It will be different this year. It may feel weird. It won’t be the same. But, the church is not a building. The church is a people. Easter is not confined inside of four walls. Easter travels all over the world. This year we are live streaming Palm Sunday And Easter Sunday Worship. This year, Easter is busting out of the bricks of our building. You can experience it in the comfort of your own home.
After all, part of the Easter message is: You can’t keep a good man down.
Stay safe and may peace be with you!
