As 2020 comes to a close, many of us may feel that our socially-distanced lives have caused our community “muscles” to become weak. We have not attended a Friday worship service or met with community groups in person for months, and yet now as our once-familiar rhythms slowly resume, we may find ourselves drawing back from community rather than pressing in. This can be due to different anxieties, competing priorities, sin struggles, and even sloth. Yet the church is one of the primary means that the Lord has given us to help us persevere through the trials and temptations of this world. In this episode, Jaya Shinde and Samson Prem encourage us to extend grace and patience to those with varying preferences while taking advantage of the growing opportunities to reconnect with others at Redeemer.
