Dear friends in Christ,
I was glad when they said unto me, let us go to the house of the Lord. Psalm 122
It has been almost six months since we closed the doors of our church in accordance with the protocols established by our bishops. Together we have weathered the early phase of a global pandemic, adapting our worship and our daily lives in order to flatten the curve and keep one another safe. We have done this for the common good.
We have continued to be the church in this time. We have adapted to online worship. We have seen the cracks in our social system and St. George’s folks have responded with generosity to the most needy and vulnerable. We have supported front-line workers, sewing masks and scrub caps. We have grieved with those who have suffered great loss in this time. We have prayed daily, for our world and for the needs of others. I am so humbled and encouraged by your strength, forbearance and hope, and I am deeply grateful.
On September 13, 2020, we will resume in-person worship in accordance with diocesan protocols for the amber phase of our pandemic response. I am grateful to our wardens, and a dedicated parish transition team. Together we have been imagining worship with new rules to follow. One person observed that it’s like the book of Leviticus, with over 600 rules for entering the meeting place, conducting the liturgy, and keeping things clean! Thankfully we don’t have that many rules to follow, but we need to learn to do things differently with great care…
