Weekly Message from the Pastor
Dear La Habra Christian Church family and friends,
That's what it's all about.
The reason for Easter is that Jesus died on the cross and rose again
in order to get humanity connected to God again.
Sin was in the way, pride was in the way, hate and apathy was in the way.
By connecting us to God, strangely, it also made us connected to each other.
That's how you describe a body.
The Western world has always been disconnected in the 21st century.
The technology that united us in spirit actually disconnected us from our dinner tables, our neighbors, and ironically, from our facebook friends.
Our quarantine has made that fact excruciatingly apparent.
Getting 10 "likes" on facebook isn't the same as spending time with friends.
This is a small disadvantage in work-from-home environments, but it's almost impossible to do church-from-home.
The first sermon series when we get back to our church building is "Sharing Jesus by Caring for People." sound familiar? that's our motto, our theme, our mission in this community. I believe that's more important now than ever in our country. But how do we connect in an era of social distancing? I don't know. I'm trying to figure that out too, as I try different things.
One thing we're going to try this Sunday is to do a Zoom chat room after our livestream service. So if our service ends at 10:15 am, click on the link to join us for chat. It's like our donuts and coffee time in between services. Let's have everyone join and see how that goes. I'll send an email out to the rest of our people (374 people) after our Good Friday service this Friday at 7 pm (livestreamed). But as leaders, I wanted you to get the info first so you could download the app on your phone or computer beforehand and try it out with your camera and audio settings.
and let's try another thing - could we try using Zoom to connect with our growth groups? Even college kids who used to party together on Thursday nights are Zooming together and drinking in front of their screens. (I'm not saying let's drink together). But would it be cool to pray together on Zoom?
