Dear Church Family,
This week we’re closing out 2nd John by looking at the whole of this very short letter. We’ll be paying particularly close attention to the last few verses where John wishes to share more with his friend “face to face.” In a culture that is less and less “face to face,” I sometimes wonder: At what cost? Everything it would seem is available to us on a screen, in our headphones, among an entirely new digital universe. And as exciting as these developments are, it does seem we’ve lost some “face to face” reality. With COVID we’ve enjoyed the benefits of technology, but lost so much “face to face.” Now with more and new opportunities to connect in person what could John teach us about the unending importance of “face to face”? I can’t wait to talk more about it on Sunday!
Grace and Peace,
