COVID outbreak after church ignores travel recommendations

    Several suspected cases of COVID-19 at Copperas Cove church

    This is breaking news here in town.

    Even though everyone is being asked not to do any needless travel, a local church brought in a guest speaker from out of town.

    The speaker and five members of the church have tested positive, and 20 others are symptomatic.

    We weren't really affected by COVID, but this could hit "epidemic" status fast since it's a large church.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    From the article:

    "a guest preacher tested positive for COVID-19 after visiting Victory Baptist on Wednesday.

    "We minimized his contact with people Wednesday night and he flew home Thursday morning,"​

    That's not minimizing his contact with people. Shouldn't he have avoided flying at that time? Maybe isolating in a hotel room & had food left at the door? Flying while knowing he was positive only involved more people.

    It's a spectacularly selfish and negligent act. Very interested now to know what he was guest speaking on.

    Good point. I went to the church website out of curiosity - it looks like it
    was the topic of the Chastening of the Father:

    Church website ----->"The Chastening Of The Father | SermonAudio" The Chastening Of The Father

    Now, I'm not one to believe God is the creator of all that's wrong in our world....but that does seem a bit ironic.
