When The Cup Is All Empty

no-chalice

PrayTell reports on the word from above in New Hampshire. One commenter there offered this opinion, which pretty much sums it up for me:

I also wish pastors and bishops would not withhold the chalice from me during flu outbreaks. It should be up to me to decide whether or not it is a risk I want to take. I don’t need daddy telling me when it’s too dangerous.

Modern life, even in churches, are full of more serious disease-spreading opportunities. The best single thing a pastor could do is outfit ushers with gloves and forbid people from opening doors. Still, lay people are not children. Pronouncements like Bishop Libasci’s are juvenile at best.
