From the General Presbyter
I was definitely one of those people who complained that the last administration did not follow the science when it came to COVID-19 protocols. So, when the current administration appeared to be the polar opposite of what the previous CDC folks were doing, I rejoiced. That was until I heard that all vaccinated people no longer have to wear masks or social distance.
Suddenly there is a new complaint – the scientists did not consider the social aspect and impact of such a revelation, so now we are confused and divided and entrenched, just like before.
Isn’t that the way it always happens? We gripe, then are happy, then gripe again. This kind of human behavior was highlighted in the Acts 2 narrative of the Pentecost. A miracle occurred in the speaking of different languages, and some folks complained that the apostles were drunk.
Of course I am going to say “take it slow” when fully regathering and get vaccinated. But I will also say that these recent times have brought out the best and the worst of us. As we continue our online ministries and open up our building doors, we have another opportunity to show the world and one another, the best of who we are in Christ.
