To gather, or not

To gather, or not

    Pastoral Encouragement on the Coronavirus

    Earlier this week I shared with you a helpful discussion between Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman in which they consider the rationale of suspending worship at Capitol Hill Baptist Church (Washington DC). In this discussion, “On when the church can’t gather,” he weighs the last time his church suspended corporate worship, which was during the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918. He also shares the published response from Presbyterian minister in DC, Francis Grimke.  

     

    I would also like to commend Al Mohler’s post at The Briefing from earlier today in which he addresses the same topic, with the same conclusion.
