A Christian Code of Mutual Respect: Covid edition

by | Oct 28, 2021

We the Church respect our Government’s role in keeping our country safe through the implementation of varying measures as we confront the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic together. To them we pledge our peaceful cooperation.

We the leaders of the Church respect the consciences and choices made by each church member to be vaccinated or not vaccinated. To them we pledge our impartial care and edification.

We the members of the Church respect the challenges facing our leaders in facilitating the gathered life of the church whilst cooperating with the varying measures asked of all organisations. To them we pledge our encouragement and patience.

We the vaccinated leaders and members of the Church respect the consciences and choices of our unvaccinated leaders and members, and accept that the way we are able to interact with them will be limited as we confront the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. To them we pledge our non-judgemental love and solidarity.

We the unvaccinated leaders and members of the Church respect the consciences and choices of our vaccinated leaders and members, and accept that the way we are able to interact with them will be limited as we confront the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. To them we pledge our non-judgemental love and solidarity.

We the Church have chosen to be known by the love we have for one another, and choose the privilege of demonstrating that love to all people through the mutual respect we have promised to embrace.

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.
James 3:17-18
