There are several activities that take place when we gather together in the room. Conversations take place, prayers are uttered, songs are vocalized, hugs are exchanged, children are attended to, cars are parked, coffee is brewed, and volunteers joyfully serve. But one activity is at the epicenter of it all—the teaching of (and listening to) God’s Word. We make this the bulk of our weekly gatherings. Why is that so? Moreover, why can’t we just stay home and watch it all online?
