I just wanted to share, and to see how many others have found this to be the case, that streaming worship on Facebook Live is turning out to be a welcome mat for a lot of folks who have been disconnected from Church, or never connected to it at all.
In addition to my own friends and family scattered across the continent, a lot of local people have been joining us, whether through being directly invited by a parishioner, or having seen the church's FB invitation as it's been reposted by parishioners, or whatever. I've received positive feedback directly from some of these folks, and indirectly through their fam/friends who are members of St James, for which, "Praise ye the Lord!"
May our good and gracious God inspire us who have been locked out of our churches to go out, once this time of trouble has gone by, into the highways and hedges to invite them into the feast.
