"If you build it, he will come." The classic line from the movie, Field of Dreams, steals the idea from the book of Exodus. In the final chapters of Exodus, God gives an exhaustive list of instructions for building the tabernacle. The tabernacle is the place where Israel can come and experience God's presence. "If you build it, I will come," is in essence, what God tells Moses.
And over time (thousands of years), the tabernacle gave way to the temple, and the temple gave way to the church, and with each iteration, it was the place where the people of God could expect to experience God.
So fast forward to today, what do we do when the church is closed? What will we do if the church stays closed? How do we experience the presence of God, without a building? Tune in, and find out!
