Description
Summary:This article considers the response of the Korean church to the crisis of COVID-19, giving a theological reflection on worship, church, and mission. Through the various challenges and responses, the Korean church has come to rethink each of these topics. Though a gathering worship is still important, how to worship is more essential than where to worship. Church as God’s people is more important than church as its building or as its hierarchical structure. And in mission, wherever is more essential than whereto. These insights can contribute significantly to a deeper understanding of worship, church, and mission for these times.
