The Placing of the Passing of the Peace

Recently the passing of the peace was moved from the beginning of the worship service to the end of the worship service in response to concerns about the flu being spread with the idea that those who were uncomfortable with passing the peace (for whatever reason) could leave quickly after the benediction and avoid it. We’re interested in knowing how that is working out and would appreciate feedback on what the congregation as a whole thinks. For that reason we’ve included a poll at the bottom of the Prayer Concerns insert. Simply circle beginning or end to indicate when in the service you prefer to pass the peace. If you have no firm preference, just leave the poll unmarked.
