1/22/2023 – You can’t serve from your sofa

From Maia Mikhaluk in Kyiv (322nd day of ruzzian invasion. 48th Sunday service since the invasion started): I just read on a friend’s page this quote:

“As church attendance numbers fade across the nation and online services become very convenient, it’s important to remember why church attendance for and you and your family matters so much.

You can’t serve from your sofa. You can’t have a community of faith on your sofa. You can’t experience the power of a room full of believers worshiping together on your sofa.
Christians aren’t consumers. We are contributors. We don’t watch. We engage. We give. We sacrifice. We encourage. We pray by laying hands on the hurting. We do life together.”
(Michael Carl)

Before the invasion started, we had problems with people staying at home to watch the service instead of coming to fellowship. But the war cured that very quickly. The war reminded us what church is about and it’s not about watching Sunday service on TV screen.
