Barnabas participated in the diocesan continuing education program.&nbsp; The program was offered by representatives of our diocesan insurance company.&nbsp; Participants learned and discussed, at length, the liability issues facing our churches today.&nbsp; The approach that is strongly encouraged by the diocese to address potential liabilities is to <strong>be proactive</strong>.&nbsp; This includes being aware of our responsibility as a parish for good order, practice, and safety. Some things may just require common sense. Others requires us to strictly adhere to our parish bylaws and diocesan bylaws and church statutes.</p> <p>A significant and growing source of liability for churches today concerns our children.&nbsp; Leaving children unsupervised or unattended can lead to our children coming to harm and to our church being subject to legal action and financial damages.&nbsp; <strong>So parents, please, please, supervise your children at all times</strong>. This includes all youth 17 and under.&nbsp;</p> <p>Remember, we can protect the church from liability by doing the infinitely more important job of protecting our children from harm.</p> <p>Also, as a reminder to all, please click the "<a href="http://www.stmichael-delaware-oca.org/news_160616_1.html">more information&gt;</a>" link to the right for information on proper church etiquette.&nbsp; Let's take the time to review these and renew our efforts to adhere to them.&nbsp; By doing so, we will enhance everyone&rsquo;s experience of the divine services.&nbsp; <br /><br /></p> St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church http://www.stmichael-delaware-oca.org/news_160616_1.html
