4:11 am
our people safe and worship from the very beginning we have safety protocols that have been scientifically demonstrated to work so this is not some kind of a car wash for churches to route people inside and spread the virus we have to be safe but that decision doesn't change the science before this decision it was safe for us to celebrate our service in and it still is now. so my instruction to mike reece doesn't change being outside is an extra safety precaution, some asked them to do it outside the mask outside when it's possible. no one is safer to be inside to go inside safety protocols, but this does change is that we can now exercise their constitutionally protected natural right to worship god without fear of harassment from the government. archbishop cordileone is encouraging people to consider to people considered to be at higher risk stay home though. >>and live that watch the live stream services. this full interview took place on our
