CTMH NEWSLETTER 29.6.20
It has been nearly two months since the last letter. As people have been shut down within their homes, much of the focus has been on meeting immediate needs in our own lives and those around us, but some have been looking at their homes and thinking about building projects.
As the Church, we have been responding to immediate needs, and many have been at the front line caring for those around us. But we have also had space to reflect and look forward as we emerge from lock down. One of my architectural enquiries led me to a short book written in in 1995 by Walfred J. Fahrer entitled “Building on the Rock”. Walfred addresses the identity of Church, being Church and building Church Together from an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective. In the discussion questions at the end of chapter two he asks:
“what would happen to your congregation if you could no longer meet together for public worship on Sunday Mornings?”
How do our church communities build from here? How is the Spirit guiding us? May we all be open and pray for our denomination leaders and local leadership as they consider the way forward.
