Musings of a Radical Disciple

A good friend, John James Kirkwood, has a You Tube channel called, “The Sparrow’s Call.” You should check it out. He says neat stuff that makes me think, and thinking deeply about things is probably my favorite thing to do. Anyway, he said some stuff today that made me think.

How To Reduce COVID Risk With Worship Teams

Singing and wind instruments are the most productive aerosol generating activities in church life and aerosols are the main method of transmitting an airborne virus. Large aerosol droplets at close range and small (long hang time) aerosol droplets in the air at long range. How much exposure to COVID-19 is the issue [1] and theContinue reading “How To Reduce COVID Risk With Worship Teams”
