More news about reopening churches.

This week, the Churchwardens and I have been busy completing the risk assessments to reopen the church buildings. I have been reflecting on my own feelings about this. I have realised that I have a head and heart response to reopening the buildings. My heart response is that I want to gather as a physical communities is these sacred spaces and worship God. My head response is that having read all the guidance, I should be encouraging anyone in the vulnerable categories to stay at home and continue to worship online. I have been wondering how responsible it is to fling open the doors and encourage people to come back? Our reading today reminds us that “love is patient and kind”, so please be patient as we figure out the best and safest way to move forward.
