But We did Everything Right

The Christian Post this week reported on a church in Georgia who recently restarted in person worship services (here). The result was an outbreak of COVID in the congregation. The worst part about this story is they seemed to do everything the CDC and local health department recommend. We should pray for this congregation and... Continue Reading →

Where’s Romans 13 Now

Sunday my wife and I were out, and as we drove along we saw a church gathering for worship. There were 100-150 people coming together for a service and picnic.
