To the fellowship,

During this time of COVID-19 things are rapidly changing. We trust that everyone is taking good care and that each meeting is making autonomous decisions regarding how to keep everyone safe. Some live meetings have gone online and others have closed temporarily. If you have a change to your meeting such as a temporary closure, please email the office so that we can update the website.

If you are meeting live, then you may, as a group, decide not to hold hands at the end in prayer but instead to just pray next to each other. Feel free to take the actions that fit for you and your group and remember that we need to keep ourselves healthy and we also need to keep others that might be more vulnerable safe as well.

We have been told that due to closures of institutions that there is an increased demand for the services of Zoom rooms. Due to that, the Zoom system has been quite busy and there have been some connection issues with our virtual meetings. Therefore, we have instituted a back up system to connect for the AGM in case we run into problems. Please see the website for details on that.

Also, know that orders that come into the office may take longer than usual as we face the slowing down of services. We ask for your patience with this.

Remember to use all of our tools to connect with each other while taking precautions. Use your phone and email to stay connected as we all may need increased support in that way during this turbulent time. We can pray and meditate to stay grounded as well.

Be well everyone.

Amy G on behalf of the GSA Board of Directors
