God’s Response to Grumbling (Numbers 11-12)

(For accuracy of this transcript, kindly refer to video or audio file)

It is really good to be back here in the sanctuary. A big thanks to Chin Mei and Jonathan Lin, who have been busy at work this weekend making this possible. This is kind of a practice run, so we’ll all be ready for next Sunday. But as good as it is to be standing here in the pulpit, after so many months, there’s a big part missing to this service and it’s you. We all know the church is not a building. The church is not a place. The church is the gathered people of God. And so, we’re busy getting ready with preparations for starting next Sunday to have services with capacity restrictions for some of us, while the rest of us are still online. Very thankful for our deacons who have been very busy getting this ready. In fact, I think this afternoon the deacons are coming here to the sanctuary to figure out all the physical distancing with the chairs and everything like that. We’re very appreciative for their work. So, next Sunday, the 20th is by registration only. And so, if you’re not registered to be here next Sunday, please continue to join us from your homes and small groups gathering. Members, if you haven’t been, please check your email. I’ve heard some of our office emails are going to spam, but everyone should have at least received a couple of emails given instructions about the process. And then about half of our members have already received an invitation to register for the 20th and the other half of our members, hopefully by Tuesday or so you’ll receive an invitation to register for the 27th, so please do respond to those emails. To everyone else, to our guests, to those who regularly attend who are not yet members, we asked you to continue to be patient with us. It’s going to be a few more Sundays until we can open up the service live for more people, we are working in that direction, will communicate it when we get there. Until then, please do stay actively involved with us online for our service. And then please, can I ask all of us, be praying for this process. Be praying for wisdom for a lot of decisions to be made. Be praying for unity. Be praying for God’s protection on us as a church family. As we start gathering together again, this is uncharted territory for all of us. With that, let’s turn to God’s word. We’re going to be in the book of Numbers chapter 11 and 12 this morning.
