Update from Pastor Lynn Leonard

As most of you have probably heard, the CDC is recommending that all of us, vaccinated or not, wear a mask when we are in an indoor space in public. The reason is that we may unknowingly carry the variant to someone else causing their illness. We also have children and youth that are not vaccinated who are vulnerable.

When asked what is the greatest commandment, Jesus replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul and your neighbor as yourself." We are called to love likewise. Therefore, we are going to ask that all that wear masks when we come together at St. Luke's. We will continue to sing in worship and we are not putting tape back on our pews. By wearing masks though, we are showing love and concern for others.

We will get through this pandemic. Be kind to yourself and one another. Spend time with God. Enjoy and embrace creation, music and art. Know that God is always near.

Love, Joy and Peace to you all,

Pastor Lynn
