Hugs, Handshakes, and Heart Taps

The Passing of the Peace at the beginning of worship is an expression of Christian love, unity, and reconciliation with one another.  For some, however, expressing those values through hugs and handshakes is not comfortable, and for others, close physical contact may pose a medical risk due to a lowered immune system or other vulnerability.

So, if someone gives a “Heart Tap” by patting their own heart during the Passing of the Peace, please respond in a like manner to acknowledge the heartfelt grace of that person’s greeting and their need to maintain physical space.
