[March 15, 2020] Churches all across the country shut down. Big and small alike, across denominations and ethnicities. On this morning the Church learned that worship isn't dependent on a physical sanctuary. Church is the people of God singing about hope in the midst of fear. We are the temple of God. Wherever we worship God, we are His sanctuaries.
[March 16, 2020] My home, the Bay Area, receives the shelter in place mandate. Stuck at home, trying to process what's happening, overcome by the eternal hope I have in Christ, I finally put melody and lyric and the present moment together: I know how this story ends. We will be with God forever. This world is not my home. I'm just passing through.
Sanctuaries is the worship project of Sebastian Yip and South Bay Bible Church. Sebastian is the pastor of South Bay Bible Church in San Jose, CA.
