I just wanted you to know that we’ve had three (3) people test positive for COVID this week and many more in the community.
Most of this summer we have had a period of calm with little or no cases of COVID, but in recent weeks there has been a sharp increase in cases. I believe part of the reason for this sharp increase is that a lot of people have forgotten or neglected all the common-sense safe practices. Therefore, I ask that you take the appropriate precautions. In other words, WASH YOUR HANDS, people! Also, if feel sick or have been around someone who has been sick, STAY HOME.
A couple of things:
- Don’t Freak Out. Be cautious, but not fearful. God is still in control. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and SOUND MIND. (2 Timothy 1:7) “Sound Mind” implies that we think clearly and exercise a little common sense. All indications is that while this new variant of COVID is a lot more contagious than the previous stain, it’s not as deadly.
- Stay United. It breaks my heart how divisive we’ve made this virus. This should not happen among Christians! Wear a mask or don’t wear a mask. Get vaccinated or don’t get vaccinated. Come to church or watch on the Live-Feed. Let’s just not point fingers and condemn others over issues in which the facts are in dispute.
We will continue to have church. There are no plans to shut down. The Live-Feed will continue to be available.
On a personal note, I plan to be tested for COVID every Friday for my own conscience’s sake and if I test positive, I will not be in church.
I love each and ever one of you. Let’s really come together through this and make Christ SHINE.
