End of the American Dream
As I have warned many times before, life is not going to be getting back to normal any time soon. The state of California just instituted a whole bunch of new COVID-19 restrictions, and the California Department of Health has confirmed that as a result of those new restrictions all in-person church gatherings have been banned “with no definite end date”. Of course many churches will continue to have online services, but it just isn’t the same. And with greatly reduced revenues coming in for the foreseeable future, a lot of smaller churches may not be able to survive. It is one thing to lock down a state for a few weeks so that hospitals do not get completely overwhelmed during a pandemic, but it looks like California may be locked down for months to come, and some are even speculating that the restrictions could stretch into next year.
