I recently read an article in The New York Times saying that if it seems like everyone you know has Covid it’s because they do. That is a bit of an exaggeration, but during the last week I am aware of several people, including parishioners, who have tested positive. Fortunately, all the cases are relatively mild, but there is no guarantee that will always be the case. In Fulton County in the last week more than 2,300 cases were reported, a number that is likely low since much testing is now done at home and not reported.
Because of that I strongly encourage you to wear your masks in church again. If cases continue to rise, we will require them. I’ll be wearing mine tomorrow when I give out communion. I know it is a pain, but we can’t let our weariness of more than two years of pandemic cause us to let our guard down too soon.
I also remind you that we are continuing to collect food for the Solidarity Food Pantry in Sandy Springs. When you’re at the grocery store pick up a few things and put them in the red wagon.
The bulletin for tomorrow is attached. Hope to see you tomorrow.
