The leadership of Resurrection has been closely monitoring the information coming out regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Although we believe there is no need to panic (after all the Lord is still on his throne), we are making a few cautionary and temporary changes in our Sunday morning worship.
For this Sunday (March 8), Bishop Stewart has made the decision that we will be using the liturgy for “Communion in One Kind.” What this means is that only the bread will be offered. Additionally, the bread servers will wash their hands thoroughly with soap and warm water during the Offertory.
Other service adjustments may be coming regarding the passing of the Peace. These will be announced on Sunday if needed.
Resurrection will continue to monitor the situation and will respond as appropriate.
As always, if you or a family member are currently suffering from cold or flu symptoms, including a fever, please know that it is best to stay home and rest.
Here is a recent note from our Archbishop, The Most Rev. Dr. Foley Beach…
I want to ask you to build into your Lenten observance specific times of prayer (and fasting) asking for God’s intervention in the spread of the Coronavirus in North America and all around the world.
God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and sound judgment (2 Tim.1:7). Let us walk and live in God’s wisdom asking for his help, and trusting in His mercy.
