Last night President Ramaphosa addressed the nation and unlike the last time he did so, he actually had things to say, and was worth listening to.

The big announcement was that the whole nation will move to Level 3 which means most economic activity can resume (though not restaurants, hair & Beauty salons, gyms or churches). We have to wait a few days for the govt to gazette the actual details of what we can and cannot do, but I'm excited.

I'm not excited because I can once again buy a bottle of wine legally, though that will be nice, I'm excited because I've had some thoughts about Level 3 Lockdown church and how we can start to reach out to others through our WhatsApp Gatherings and begin to grow the church again.

A friend said on Facebook that he was upset by the fact that churches were closed but bottle stores were open, to which I replied "churches are not closed, buildings are". That has been the reality for The Gathering and as a church we're thriving and loving it. Yes we miss meeting together in person, but we're as connected now as we've ever been and I know that church is ready to step in to the promises of God and grow again.  Exciting times!

Another friend posted in a church group on FB about an idea for drive-thru church which sounds exciting, and he said we should be "standing on the promises not sitting in the premises". I really love that because that is what The Gathering have been doing throughout this time and we're not stopping anytime soon.

Roll on June 1st and Level 3!
