WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 08: Director of the Presbyterian Church Office of Public Witness Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson (L) and Sojourners' Director of Mobilizing Lisa Sharon Harper join other religious leaders from various Christian denominations for a prayer service during the Global Summit on Immigration Reform outside the United Methodist Building on Capitol Hill October 8, 2013 in Washington, DC. During the prayer service, Nelson said, "We ask God to give us strength in our mission for just and humane immigration reform." Ministers, bishops, clergy and lay leaders visited the offices of Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) and other congressional leaders to ask for comprehensive immigration reform.

With the number of COVID cases still on the rise, the State of North Carolina and the City of Charlotte have placed certain orders in place to assist with the spread of this deadly disease.

While I’m not going to lie to you, I, like others, enjoy being in the House of Lord. I have been participating in church virtually just for the safety of my family. My kids and I did go to church once, but have continually to participate virtually.

With this order, from my understanding, there have been several COVID cases allegedly linked to gatherings at The United House of Prayer on Beatties Ford Road. Also according to the order, a list of attendees has been requested a few times to assist with contact tracing. Most churches do not have a sign in sheet for those attending services. Come on people, they know these things aren’t available. Honestly, I understand the order, however, if parishioners want to go into the house of the Lord and serve him, they should be able to. But I also understand that those attending have to be safe. Here is the announcement below as well as the order. What are your thoughts?
