The thought of being scattered is, at this time in our lives, very prevalent. We are not meeting in person for worship. Gathering is a challenge as we continue to deal with the constraints and limitations which COVID-19 has placed on us. However, although these limitations feel at times to be constricting our mission, we can take solace in the fact that God is in control. We look to Scripture to provide for us examples of those who have gone before in dealing with situations of scattering, and yet kept their eyes fixed on God, and, in that, retained a strong grasp on community.
