Day 94 Revd Tim Heaton’s Thought for the Day

I don’t know about you but I’ve never taken part in a lockdown quiz or happy hour. Zoom fatigue set in quite early for me, but then I do have Arabella and it must be quite different if you’re living on your own.

Twice I’ve had a video meeting with friends, but just like online church meetings I’ve never really got used to people talking over each other and the distraction of seeing my own face when speaking.

It only goes to prove that real life, in-the-flesh, face-to-face interactions are the ones humans are best at. They build trust and empathy. I bet we’ll look back on lockdown as the time we really learnt that.
