The vaccines against Covid-19 are now being administered. They have been rigorously tested and found to be safe and effective. We should all be grateful to the scientists, doctors, technicians and leaders who developed this protection in record time.
Now it is our turn. We should get vaccinated for the love of Christ. Why? Because Jesus said, “just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” We are called to love everyone whom Christ loves, and that is everybody! Getting vaccinated is an act of love for our neighbors, our communities, and our nation.
I will be getting vaccinated at the earliest opportunity and I urge you to do the same. Because it will take several months for this process to reach everyone, in the meantime I will be wearing a mask when I am out in public.
The attached video conversation with Dr. Marc Boom, Rev. Enid Henderson and Rev. Luis Ramirez may help convey this message as well.
Grace and peace,
