This morning, I had to make a very tough decision. On consultation with several people, we decided to cancel Sunday Morning Worship Service. I had to cancel church…and I hate it! Having to say that we are not going to meet together and offer people a place to worship God and fellowship with other believers, especially three days before Christmas- it’s heartbreaking…

…But…can you really ever cancel the worship of God and fellowship with others? Can you really cancel Church? Isn’t church more than just the building, more than just the times we meet together for planned corporate worship?

Sunday morning worship includes singing, praying, reading God’s Word, studying it, meeting and greeting others, and encountering the living God (at least that’s what it’s supposed to do!). We do this every week on Sundays, at 10am at CUMC, according to a planned order of worship that is sometimes printed in the bulletin…sometimes not.  But all of that stuff-from the singing to the meeting God-can be done in other places, at other times, too.

You can set down this morning with your kids and read the Christmas story again (Matthew 1:18-2:12; & Luke 1:26-38; 2:1-40). Listen to praise and worship music, or sing your own. Schedule some time to spend with friends and Christian brothers and sisters, maybe over coffee, brunch, or dinner.

Even though we are not together this morning for worship, the great thing is that no matter where we are all scattered, God is there with us! As we edge ever closer to the day we celebrate God’s coming to earth, let us draw near to each other, and to God through worship and song and study. Let us remember what this season is all about.

And yet, I still hate having to cancel this morning’s worship service. Meeting together as fellow believers to worship is vital to who we are as Christians. “And let us not neglect meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another… (Hebrews 10:25).” So, let us continue to worship and praise God, until we can once more meet together, hopefully next week!
