They don’t come to church, not yet

Recently I had a fruitful conversation with a fellow priest in the east end of the country (while I am in the west end of the country). He asked me about my “new” church and community. I wrote to him that people in the immediate area don’t come to church (I am talking about the old normal). His response wakes me up, “Not yet…” Yes, there are still many people “not yet” coming to church, we need to invite them to come; people who are not yet coming to church may come to church one day. I pray, “yes, Lord, please help me to experience your presence when I am going to invite people from the community to St Chad to worship you. May you be honored and glorified. Amen!”
