Stay At Home Spirituality

March 22, 2020

by Reverend Anthony Makar

The joke that's circulating is how introverts were born for this time of social distancing. Being one myself, I get it; and yet I'm still struggling. So what must it be like for the extroverts among us? We all need to stay at home as much as possible to do our part in reducing community transmission of the coronavirus - and it's not easy! So how do we do this? How might we engage this from a more spiritual perspective? One more thing. During this Sunday’s service, when Rev. Makar lights our West Shore chalice, he will at the same time invite you to light something in your home— anything resembling a chalice will work. This will symbolize our solidarity. The physical distance does not matter if our spirits come close together.

Events and circumstances related to the Coronavirus are moving fast. Where things stood earlier this week are very different from where they stand now. We must do our part to reduce the rate of infection, and prevent our healthcare systems from being overburdened. We must act now to preserve the health of the community and especially of the most vulnerable among us. I must, therefore, call for West Shore to cease face-to-face gatherings starting this Sunday, March 15, to extend through the month of March. Instead, we will Livestream our worship service for the first time ever at West Shore! After that, we will see where things stand with the pandemic situation.
