Church on the couch

Life is very different right now isn’t it? I thought I would do something different here on the blog too and talk about one of the ways my life is different during quarantine. I’ve been sitting on the couch for church the last three weeks as it has been live streamed or filmed in advance to be viewed via the internet. If you’d like to attend church from your home I’ve provided a few links below. If you are feeling like it’s not a very good Friday this year, please watch this short message from my brother reminding us why it still is.

Alta Vista Baptist Church in Ottawa is connecting via recorded messages on their website.

Resurrection Church in Ottawa is livestreaming on Sunday mornings and then making services available on their website afterwards.

On the other side of the world Salt Community Church is meeting live on line as well as making video and audio recordings available.

I mention these three as I have a connection with each one but there are many others. Easter looks different in many ways this year but God has not changed and neither has His love for us or the hope He provides.

    Thank you, Heather! I get disheartened seeing all the Easter cards in the crafting community featuring eggs and bunnies. Especially in this pandemic I feel such sadness when I see all the cards with sentiments like “Together We’re Stronger” and “You Got This”. Looking for peace and safety within ourselves is like pressing further into a cave in search of light, or further into the ocean in search of dry ground, deluded that our problems are outside of us, and that the solution is inside of us. But Scripture tells us that our problems are inside of us, and the solution is outside of us. Thank you for pointing your readers in the direction of our Savior, Jesus. I’m grateful.

    Oh, Heather, what a wonderful message from your brother! As soon as he said ” an extraordinary separation”…the Light went on and I ‘got it’…and goose bumps! Once again, Jesus relates to our present day heartaches and Trials. Bless you, Heather, and thank your brother for the encouragement! ♥
