We keep wishing for our lives to return to “normal,” meaning “like it used to be.” So many of us went home and may never come back to this building and the congregation of brothers and sisters that we used to attend every Sunday. Many churches lost steam when in-person services shut down.
Will we go back to rising early and dressing up for church? Some people may choose to pray from their couch. Worries of a deepening slide in attendance are universal.
