Oh God, we're tired.We're tired of rules that change;we're tired of bubbles that shrink and expand,and expand and shrink, until we are ready to pop;we are tired of masks,and proof-of-vaccine,and not knowing if the kids will belearning in-person, or if we're going to have tofigure out how to work and parentall from the same kitchen table...and, Oh Dear God,if we are tired of it all,what must it be like for the peoplein the hospitals,in the ICUs,the medical and support staffs doingeverything they can to keep people alive,the way they have been for the past 18 months,non-stop;in the places where the fourth wave has hit,in the places where the last wave never ended,in the places where it can be seen,not that far on the horizon.Oh, God, where do we gowhen the well of our compassion runs dry;when moving to the other side of the roadfeels like a better choice than stopping,binding up the wounds of the onebroken at the hands of the thieves,and getting them to safety?We're in a time of trial,we're traveling the valley of death's shade,this is a time when theories of conspiracyand fear, and hatred surround,ready to take us downin an unwary moment...and, with our overtaxed stress responses,keeping us awake with their unceasing alarmsthat we can't shut off,every moment feelsunwary.Help us!Please...?Help us to support one another.Help us to find reserves.Help us to fall apart sequentially,so we can lean on others,and they can lean on us.Help us to reach out.Help us to lift up.Help us to fear no evil,because you are with your creation...Oh, help us, God...for we are so very tired. ...

Timeline PhotosThis Orange Shirt Day, Sept. 30, 2021, is the first observance of a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. For settler Christians in particular, this is a time when we can reflect on our role in colonialism and the residential school system, and our ongoing responsibility to make reparations.

Yesterday, I got a message demanding to know how I, as a Christian leader, could keep "pushing the vaccines" on people. It's not the first time I've been asked.While I would not characterize my posts as "pushing," I can accept that others might see them that way.So.Why do I want people to be vaccinated against the SARS-COV-2 virus, in its many variants?Because I want people to be safe and healthy.Because, if people do get infected, I want them to have the much better chance at a minor infection, rather than finding themselves in hospital, in the ICU, or in a grave.Because congregating together is the way that this virus gets passed on. I like congregations. (It's a churchy thing, I know.) I don't want congregations of people worshipping God to be COVID-19 superspreader events. (Or even regular spreader events!)Because I don't want communities of faith (or anyone else, for that matter) to have to be saying to people, "We love you. We miss spending time with you. We want you here. But your choice to not be vaccinated is putting yourself and others at risk at a risk level higher than this congregation can accept, so you can't be part of our physical gatherings," or to be saying to people, "Our desire to include everyone supercedes our concern about what the virus can do to you, or to others in our community of faith, so, while we realize it is less than ideal, health-wise, please come in." No matter what direction a community of faith goes, there is a division of spirit and community. Because researchers and public health authorities are telling us we need very high vaccination rates, right around the world, to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end. Vaccine hesitancy and vaccine misinformation is driving the growth of a fourth wave, here in Canada, causing hospital shortages, and, ultimately, death.And - if you want a particularly United Church geek reason - because there is *nothing* in our doctrine (shared beliefs) or practice (shared actions) that would argue against getting vaccinated. There is, however, a whole lot about putting our faith in action, about caring for our neighbours - and all of creation - in physical, tangible, ways. Like getting vaccinated.Please.Keep washing your hands.Keep wearing your masks.Keep that 2 meter physical distance.And please... please!...if you are medically able, and have not yet done it, please - get vaccinated. ...
