Like much of the world right now, the Church faces a kind of humiliation in the face of the current crisis.
Should we live stream worship at this time? Maybe not. At least we should think about why, to what end, and with what consequences.
We have resources for both public and private prayer in the midst of this crisis. Our Lord taught us to pray, in the time of trial, for deliverance from evil.
If nothing else, the pandemic — as the WHO has now labeled COVID-19 — will test our resolve, our resilience, and our resourcefulness as voices of calm and certainty in a moment edging disturbingly toward mass hysteria.
