15 months like no other
Like many faith communities we had never heard of 'Zoom' before March 2020 - since then there has rarely been a day that we haven't as a church family not met for one reason or another using Zoom or Microsoft Teams. As part of the clergy team here, I guess the hardest time was when we were on 'our own' in church and shared services via Zoom or recorded them and then shared them via YouTube and Vimeo.
Of course we were never truly on our own - God was and is always with us and guiding us. It was at times emotional but also encouraging that many of our congregation whilst not being able to be with us in person reached across the internet and shared in our worship.
