Toilet paper is disappearing and hand sanitizer is being sold for $1 per pump. Over the past week, we’ve begun to see the management of the Corona-virus. It is deeply concerning for a number of reasons, but let’s deal with what we can.
Will RSSBC meet this week and in the weeks to come? Yes, we will meet as long as some manner of government mandate is not imposed. However, wisdom clearly teaches us that some people need to stay home.
- If you have respiratory health issues, please stay home and remain healthy.
- If you are in a high risk category for an adverse reaction (diabetic, heart issues, elderly, etc) please stay home.
- If you are sick in any way, have a fever or the flu, or other serious health issues, for your own sake please stay home.
Whether you attend or stay home, let’s exercise grace with one another. This is not a primary issue that is disciplinable, nor should it cause division. Please do not judge people for staying home. Also, please do not judge those who desire the continuation of services. There are a lot of unknown potentials, which has created fear. As those in Christ, let us be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. We have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control.
We will be having services, as our gatherings are under 250 people. There is a strong encouragement to cancel services and gatherings of over 250 people. If our government makes a request for the good of the public, we will take that into consideration and make our decision.
Hopefully as the days go forward into new territory, we will not forget who we are and whose we are. By God’s goodness we can make some adjustments and make our services available live-streamed on-line.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me or one of the deacons.
