Pandemic Reflections from our Conference Minister, Rev. David Ackerman

As we continue to live into the world as it has evolved after the COVID-19 outbreak, I continue to urge people to be vaccinated and to follow the advice of the CDC, as well as PA and MD health officials. I commend churches for the steps they have taken since the pandemic began to mitigate the spread of the virus and to connect using technology. Moving forward, I urge that common sense and care be used to keep people safe from the virus, and I also pray that grace and compassion will fill our ongoing relationships with each other. As we continue to gather together via diverse means in the days to come, please continue to pray for healing and health for all.
