Question Box: A believer's response to stay-at-home orders


As believers, how can we best cope with the current restrictions on group gatherings and the COVID-19 pandemic that are prohibiting us from meeting together on Sunday mornings and from other ecclesial functions?


Answer We all understand that it is our duty to meet together as Brethren in Christ and members of the household of faith. In fact, our need to meet together is more now than ever as we face this time of unprecedented global crisis. The Apostle Paul exhorts us accordingly in Hebrews 10:24-25: Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near
