COVID changes are here, happening right now, and while many are waiting for them to be reduced or removed, the fact is that some of them will stay… forever!
Some COVID Changes are Likely to Stay Forever!
You may not want to hear this, but it is likely that some COVID changes are likely to remain, if not forever, for a very, very long time. I have a feeling social distancing in various forms is probably here to stay. Certainly, restrictions are going to be in place for a long time, whether we get a second wave or not.
The smart move for worship leaders is to ask the Lord to show you how you can change to accommodate the new situation. Jesus might never change, but the manner in which we present Him changes often, generation to generation. And during the coronavirus time, many of us have discovered new ways to reach people we would not otherwise be able to reach.
As worship leaders, we need to be listening to the Lord and obedient to what He asks us to do, even if it is a break with tradition. Church folk have loved tradition for centuries, and rightly so, but there are some things that are not really about the gospel or Jesus or serving or unity, they are just our preferences.
So with at least some of the COVID changes being here to stay, or stay for many months or even years, listen to this and make the right changes in your team that will help you in your ministry both in the short term, and long into the future, no matter what the rest of society does!
So listen to this and get ready for the changes God leads you to make and let’s not let the times overwhelm us and our churches…
