To put it another way, we aren't gathering for church online; that's not possible. We are engaging in worship and teaching in (virtual) togetherness, in the confident hope that we will one day gather again. Communion by its very nature as a meal together requires gathering.

Biblically, we can worship in many settings and ways, both public and private, and the same is true for being taught. Online, we are doing these things, and that's wonderful, but we aren't actually gathering as the church. Communion is reserved for the gathered church.

“One day we will tell our grandchildren how we lived, how we loved, during the Great Pandemic. Let’s respect human life in such a way that we will not be ashamed to tell them the truth.” Absolutely needed word from today. We can’t get this wrong.
