While seasonal flu happens every year, this year H1N1 (or Swine Flu) has been on everyone’s mind. It seems that everywhere you turn the entire nation is on high alert. Even churches are starting to take steps towards prevention.
In fact, the church I attended this past Sunday not only had the wine (well, grape juice) in separate cups, but the communion wafers were in separate cups as well. And the deacons who served us all washed their hands with the huge bottle of hand sanitizer sitting on the stage before they handed out elements out to us.
How has seasonal and swine flu affected your church?
