After a 15-month absence, we attended an in-person worship service in June, just before the Delta variant surged. After another 5-month absence, we attended an in-person worship service on Sunday.
No offering plates were passed. We were invited to leave a gift at the altar or in a plate on our way out. Or, we could give via text or by scanning the QR code on the bulletin. It was clean and creative.
“Please do not sit on this pew” signs graced alternating pews. I appreciated the precautions. Everyone was masked. The choir was amazing. How can they sound that good wearing masks? An outdoor lunch followed. It was good to be together.
During one of the bleak moments of the pandemic, I watched/heard a rendition of “It is Well with My Soul,” by a group of Nashville musicians. I enjoyed it again last night, compliments of the Nashville Tennessean.
