Zooming Along Together
As I woke up yesterday and rolled over, I thought to myself, what is today? Is it Thursday or Friday? Then I remembered that yesterday I had visited outdoors with my neighbor on her riding mower—the highlight of my day. That was Thursday, so this had to be Friday. Good Friday, in fact.
Easter was just days away and I was planning a virtual celebration for family and friends with music, scripture, poetry, prayers. So far we have about 20 “attendees” for our Zoom gathering—so named because we’re using the Zoom video app.
Joining the Easter/Passover celebration will be people from Rolla, St. Louis, Jefferson City, Columbia, the city of Cuba, Marshfield, and the states of California and Florida.
How Is This Time Different Than Other Times?
We are also a motley crew theologically: Catholic, Methodist, Lutheran, Jewish, Church of Christ, Baptist, along with a few agnostics. It’s a group gathering that will surely bring a smile to the face of God and maybe even a nod of approval. We’re in a world-wide pandemic and we’re all in this together.
I don’t know whether we can pull this off (our Internet connection at the farm is a bit puny. But we’ll try.) As the old saying goes, it’s the thought that counts.
