Aloha to the faithful of St. Michael and All Angels:
Is All This Really Necessary?
We are blessed to return to worship at St. Michael's this Sunday. By now, most of you have read the Worship Policies and Guidelines which we will follow when we gather together. If not, I urge you to do so. And many of you, while reading them, somewhere around the middle of the second page if not before, had the question cross your mind: Is all this really necessary? The question certainly crossed my mind as we were drafting them! And the honest answer, given the present circumstances on our island, is probably not. Currently, there is no evidence of active disease on Kauai. However, the policies and guidelines were written with three basic assumptions in mind: (1) There is a high probability that Covid-19 will return to us at some point and we will discover this reality 5-14 days after it has already done so; (2) Many who call this parish home are at higher risk for this disease; (3) It is safer, and more effective, to establish guidelines that are stringently proactive to protect all of us rather than to have minimal restrictions and then try to react and contain the presence of an outbreak. So yes, as it turns out, following the mandates that have been placed upon us by a variety of authorities, the policies and guidelines are in fact necessary.
I encourage all of you who have not already done so to make a reservation for this Sunday's worship by calling the Parish Office today! And rather than lamenting the restrictions upon us, let us view them as a visible sign of our love for one another, our willingness to sacrifice our usual way of doing things for the benefit of the common good. Let us gather in joy and thanksgiving, seeking the abundance in the midst of scarcity, lifting our hearts to our Creator and to each other to receive the blessing of the love that we are and will forever be. I hope you will join us! But for those who cannot or who make the personal decision that it is simply best to remain at home, please know that we honor and respect this decision in these times, and you will be in our hearts and prayers as we lift up our entire parish family during our worship.
Love and Peace,
As we return to public worship, we will no longer be offering videotaped/on-line worship. However, we will be carefully monitoring the response of the parish as we return to public worship, evaluating whatever needs that might arise and our abilities/resources to respond to them. We are living into a new way forward, and we will need to be vigilant and flexible in our care of all who call this parish home. In the meantime, many thanks to Gary, Alan and Loretta for all their faithful and hard work in producing and distributing the video worship that fed and sustained us in the past weeks. Mahalo!!
