Notices for Week of June 13

Spring Notices: 13 June, Proper 11

Dear friends,

In today’s Gospel Jesus tells two parables or stories about the Kingdom of God. The Reign of God is a present reality that we are invited to experience and know. The Reign of God is within you. The Reign of God is now. The Reign of God is the Unitive life of Love. To be conscious of being “inside of” the flow of Love that is inclusive of every person and all of creation  – that is the Reign of God. This beautiful Reality is already at work within you. It is for us to do the spiritual work of waking up to it.

With reference to the Coronavirus, and any infectious disease, prevention is the best approach to protection. Individuals are advised to take precautions around general hygiene and public health. Clean, Cover and Contain is the recommended approach.
Clean: wash hands regularly with soap and water or hand sanitizer.

Cover: use a tissue or arm to cover coughs and sneezes as opposed to the hands which frequently touch other surfaces and people.

Contain: individuals with influenza-like symptoms should stay at home to minimize contact with others and to treat the symptoms of the illness.
