    Isn't that a violation of the First Amendment? Or at the very least like telling a store that they can open but only as long as someone doesn't buy anything.
    The Supreme Court muddled it up again.

    If it makes them feel better to wear masks, I can play that game.
    Have multiple church meetings -- mask and maskless.

    We are blessed with a large "fan shaped" auditorium with multiple (7 or 8) entrance/exits with PLENTY of room to spread out.
    I'm actually thinking about just declaring one half for masks and the other half for not.

    This represents half of the auditorium.

    What I'm more concerned about is Fauci saying that there should be no Communion, indefinitely. As far as I'm concerned, there's no reason it shouldn't be held every Sunday, and this is one of the major sacraments of the faith. It's not optional.

    We adapted just fine --- he had the communion elements available in individual servings on several tables throughout the sanctuary, and gave plenty of time for people to get theirs, either individually or as family units.

    we have these stupid sealed cups with grape juice. the seal on the top has a plastic/bread wafer across the top, which is separately sealed -- like a lid with two seals. I just skip that plastic wafer thingy. Maybe I will bring crackers and hand them out.

    Yeah, those were an option for us, but it just seemed... a bit.... contrived?

    You can't see those being used at the Last Supper?

    We've used those at our church now. Before, we had the juice cup with this piece of bread in its own little place with one seal over all. But that's been out of stock for some reason. We want that back so I'm still looking.
