An online haven

Liz Carter shares how she has experienced God’s loving care through the screen

An online haven ISTOCK

I’M SO GLAD TO GET BACK to normal church”, I read online the other day. “We should all ditch online church now. It’s unhelpful and it discourages community. Let’s get back to reality.”

After years of calling for inclusion and accessibility, the pandemic forced the issue, and many people found that these new spaces became havens of authenticity, care and love expressed for one another in the midst of a very difficult time. To hear these expressions of Church dismissed as second best is offensive to those, like me, who have found new life through them.

Come away, my beloved

If I choose to hide you away, it is for a reason.
I have brought you to this place.
Drink in the silence. Seek solitude.
