As you all surely aware, Lebanon county is the final county in PA to achieve the Green designation. This is awesome because we can begin to resume a closer picture of our lives (whether they go back to how they were before is a conversation for another day;) This was to hopefully include the Bridge actual physical gatherings on Sunday mornings.
And yes, this was the plan. However, that plan has been altered.
My family and I went on vacation last weekend. This is great news until I tell you we went to Rehoboth beach and that there was a large COVID-19 outbreak while we were there.
I would like nothing more than to meet this weekend – I have been over the moon with excitement at seeing you and sharing the space with you again – but I cannot put any of us in any kind of compromised position. Over the past few weeks, we’ve spoken about levels of caution we choose…and that we were in a space that is KNOWN to be trouble raises that beyond where we are comfortable. I do not take my responsibilities with the safety of this community lightly, no matter what I might really, really want.
We will continue to be patient, even when it’s so terribly disappointing.
So, this week, we will:
- Meet Saturday at 10am on Zoom for our contemplative retreat
- Meet Sunday at 10:30am on Facebook Live for our Sunday service.
I will go ahead with the planned 3 week series on the re-dedication of the Bridge, with the 3rd week (July 19) being the return to the building. These next 3 weeks will shape the course of our community for the future, I hope you’ll join us as we ask and answer the questions “Who?” and “Why?”
Love & Peace.
