Together! For many months of the coronavirus pandemic, much togetherness has been sacrificed in the name of social distancing to avoid spreading the virus. We had to get creative with window visits, outdoor holiday gatherings and countless video meetings. We made more phone calls and sent actual handwritten letters to stay in touch. We made those efforts because we are members of the household of God! We needed to keep the dwelling standing in challenging times. Superfluous distractions were pruned away in order to stay steady and to survive together. Some days we took care of our house better than on other days. But even then, Jesus held the structure together, himself the capstone.
Let’s not forget. Let’s continue to repair our temple and make it a splendid dwelling, sacred in the Lord.
