I Had an Interesting Day Today

I had an interesting day today.  It started like any other Sunday for me.  I got out of bed and had breakfast.  I showered, got dressed, and was soon ready to leave the house.  It’s Sunday.  Another day to meet with other Christians and worship God!

I pulled into the church’s parking lot and was puzzled by what I saw.  There were no cars there.  I walked to the entry and pulled to open the door but it was locked.  I peered through the glass doors and saw only darkness.  The lights were off.  Where was everyone?  I had to find them!

As I drove around town, I saw some of my fellow Christians in one of the local restaurants.  They were sitting across the table from one another, laughing and having a good time.  I went in to find out why the church was locked and the lights were off.  “Don’t you know?” one of them said.  “There’s a virus out there!  We can’t meet to worship.  It’s too risky.”

I got back into my car and continued my drive.  I passed by a grocery store and saw one of my fellow Christians going in.  Ah, maybe he will know why the church’s doors were locked and the lights were off.  I had to ask him!  I had to find out!  “Don’t you know?” he said.  “There’s a virus out there.  We can’t go to church.  It’s too dangerous.”

I got back into my car, puzzled but still curious as to why the doors were locked and the lights were off.  Just down the street, I saw one of my fellow Christians leaving a convenience store.  “I bet he can tell me,” I thought.  With a coke in one hand and a candy bar in the other, he smiled and said, “Don’t you know? There’s a virus out there.  We can’t meet for worship.  It’s unsafe.”

I got back into my car, puzzled as to why so many people thought it was unsafe to meet together and worship God.  I drove around town for only a few minutes and came to a large retail store.  Several of my fellow Christians were there.  Surely, one of them can tell me why the door was locked and the lights were off.  “Oh, I came here to buy a few things my son needs for school tomorrow.  Of course, I miss going to church.  But we can’t right now.  We can’t take the risk.  There’s a virus out there!”

I got in my car and went home, still puzzled as to why it was too dangerous to meet together and worship God.
