I’m traveling with the Boy Scouts this morning. It’s also Sunday. Our worship service is scheduled for tonight.
I have worshipped with my church with little interruption for more than a decade, and I miss them every one.
I miss my church this morning.
In that mild sense of melancholy I was reading and came across this statement of Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
“…we are both only where [Christ] is. He brings us together.”
Today I will lead these boys to the scriptures, we will pray, and I will strive too turn their to Christ. And we will worship.
There in that divine mystery of God’s presence we will “join the everlasting song” and will be, together with all the church we shall be only where He is. For He, in His inestimable name, and for His incomparable glory, brings us together.
