Worship Update

Dear People of Grace,

I am sending this video to you with updates about our proposed first gathering for small group worship in the nave on Sunday, July 19. In the video, you will find broad outlines for this next phase of our common life. More details are forthcoming next week as the staff and Liturgy Cluster work on a draft that the vestry will certify meets the requirements for both the CDC guidelines as well as the diocesan framework.

I ask you to simply watch the video reflection, maybe more than once, as we ground these details in our practice of prayer. And I ask for your prayers: for the staff and Liturgy Cluster, with medical professionals and vergers, who are working on these details; for the vestry who is looking at the entire spectrum of the parish’s common life; for our families as we all step into these critical conversations; for the entire parish and broader community as we listen more intently to the Spirit’s call on our lives in these trying days.

God bless you all,
Stuart
