As of March 1, 2022 we will be entering a new phase in the Covid-19 response by the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit. While the capacity restrictions have been removed, we are still to maintain Social Distancing and wear masks indoors. While many of us are vaccinated, there are those among us that have chosen not to get the vaccination for various reasons. This is true in our church family as well as the broader community in which we live. Some of us are more susceptible to health issues due to the virus and we should be sensitive to those around us and work to maintain the safest possible environment no matter where we are. Also recognize that we do not all approach the issues from the same viewpoint. If we approach each other with the love and care demonstrated by Jesus Christ it will serve to reduce the friction we have recently seen in the world around us and help us to be the light in the world that we have been called to be.
