This is our latest Third Space podcast on the Eternity Network – Worship in Wartime. We are looking at how we can be the church in this current crisis. Some are thinking this is great and gives us an opportunity to reorientate the church towards a more digital online expression. But there is a whole lot more for us to look at. What is worship? Why the militaristic language? Who are our enemies? Why can’t we just do virtual church? What does it mean to be Church? What is the future of the Church? Will Covid 19 destroy us or be used to renew us? We use ‘O Church Arise’ as an example. I hope this is helpful….if you want to help us then please subscribe and also pass this on…..
As churches across the world move more and more of their services online to comply with social distancing, David Robertson and Steve McAlpine ask, ‘What is worship? And can it really be done through a computer?’
Life In Wartime focuses on the effects that the COVID-19 crisis has had on Christianity, and in particular how believers can continue to live a distinctive life under the pressures of a pandemic.
David and Steve zero in on how worship can best be expressed in a world where fellowship is being redefined by electronic devices. What is best practise, and what are the pitfalls in thinking as we rush to digitise our faith?
WHAT IS LIFE IN WARTIME?
The COVID-19 epidemic has brought upon us all the moral challenges associated with living in a state of constant conflict. We have to choose how we’re going to respond to this global threat day by day, and David Robertson and Stephen McAlpine from Third Space are here to help you think through the implications of the messages we’re hearing, and how God would have us live in these challenging times.
The two songs I refer to are Bob Dylan – With God on our Side and O Church Arise.
