As announced in the Weekly Update this week, in keeping with the county's policies, the Session of St. Andrew's has voted to retire most of the restrictions for gathering on campus. Masks and physical distancing will no longer be required. Anyone can wear a mask anywhere in the sanctuary, but there will be a section provided for those who want to maintain 6 feet distance from others as well. We strongly recommend that those who have not been fully vaccinated wear a mask and physically distance themselves from others while on the campus. The windows and doors will be open for good airflow.
Since I am fully vaccinated, I am not planning to wear a mask this Sunday in worship. Please know that I will not be offended if you feel the need to keep a distance from me. I encourage you to maintain your own comfort level. I completely support anyone who wishes to wear a mask.
For those at home, remember you can download the bulletin and follow along with the service. The best news is that Erin McKibben and Tim Accurso will be with us this Sunday and we will return to live singing. Thanks be to God!
This Sunday we will continue the series, “GOD & IMPERIAL POWER: Jesus & Economic Injustice” with the second Q & A segment from the event about the last two lectures by Dr. Crossan and Professor Rieger, entitled “The Life of Jesus: Economic Exploitation and the Sea of Galilee” and “Christ and Christian Europe: Divine Justice and Injustice”
In this series John Dominic Crossan and Joerg Rieger expand our awareness of the historic collusion between Christianity and the empires of the west, from Jesus’ non-violent program of resistance to Roman Imperialism under Augustus, to the imperialistic “partnerships” of the 21st Century. Individually, these two scholars are powerhouses. Together, they are explosive.
