I want to give an update on our thinking at Independent Unity. I just learned that the White House issued the recommendation that no more than 10 people gather, so at this juncture we feel it is most prudent to suspend Sunday services until further notice.
I will be recording video talks, so our normal online offerings will continue as usual. I may add additional short messages and perhaps some online meditations through the week. The church office will remain open, so feel free to call if you have questions or just want to talk. Also, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I always appreciate hearing from you. If you’re not on our regular email list, let us know and we’ll add your name. I will be using this list to issue updates and announcements as needed.
Your health and well being is our first concern. As your minister, I am here to support and encourage you in every way I can so please stay in touch. Our board members are also available to talk and answer questions you may have. This time will pass, and I think we will learn much from it. We have a great group of people who are very supportive of one another and I can see this as only getting stronger.
We hold to our truth that there is but one presence and one power at work in our lives, in our church, in our nation and in the world. I see this as a time when our rather fragmented nation can put aside differences, roll up our sleeves and work together with our leadership to bring this unusual development to a successful conclusion. We do this with the fearless assurance that our way forward is clear, productive and is motivated by faith in the greater good that is surely unfolding.
Know that your church continues to be here for you.
