CORONAVIRUS - WHAT I TOLD MY CHURCH SINCE WE CANNOT MEET

Dear Church,
  
Watching the channel 12 news this morning, I see that governor
Evers has just announce a ban on gatherings of 10 or more.

Seeing that this is the case, I do not see how it is possible to have church on Sunday, or if it would even be responsible of us to do so.

For more than a week, I have been wondering about the possibility that this might happen, and thinking about what we could do instead.

 
As those of you who were in church last Sunday already know, for the next Sunday I was planning on beginning on telling the story about how and WHY I began to be involved with beginning the orphanage in Kenya.

 
Since we cannot meet as we normally do, I will instead put this on my blog page (www.donaldrhody.com) so that you can read it there. In some ways, it may even be better this way since I can include photos when appropriate, and you do not have to feel obligated look at my face!—and you can read it in your pajamas!!!

 
Also I wanted to tell you that since ours is a church with many older adults who perhaps should not go out, I will volunteer to run any errands for you, like picking up groceries for instance. I am also an older adult, but God has gifted me with a strong immune system, made stronger by living and working in many third-world countries. I am, however, more concerned about Vivian with her compromised respiratory system, so this offer may change if conditions change.

Let me know, and we can stay in touch.

Also let me know if there are others that are not on this email list who would like to know.

Love and prayers, Pastor Don
