Easter 7 – By not being together for Sunday worship we are missing out on a sense of community, belonging and connection. But it's not the building that matters, it's our capacity to connect with one another during our enforced social isolation. God meets us where we are; and only a small proportion of deep spiritual experiences have been reported as happening inside a building. A few hours before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus was praying for himself, for his disciples, and for all of his followers; and he was asking whether they could all of them be united with him in his own deep, intimate relationship with the Father. There was no mention of selection criteria like theological unity or doctrinal purity. Followers of Jesus are all invited to join the dance of the divine and be the presence of Christ in the world, and we all have a part to play.
John 17: 1-11
