Scent Free Site
The research is definitive!
Toxic petro-chemical scents are the new “tobacco” and every bit as harmful to everyone as second-hand smoke. The Churches of God have had “tobacco-free” policies for decades.
We can demonstrate godly love and concern for those who are “scent-sensitive” if we take action now, and consider the welfare of the brethren who will be worshipping with us. Many people are suffering from asthma and other lung, and sinus issues due to the toxic scents that are part of every day life.
Feast-goers at this Feast site must leave their scented products at home.
AND, begin IN ADVANCE to eliminate all artificially scented products from their daily routines (personal hygiene, laundry detergent, dryer sheets etc.) so there is no “third-hand scent” on clothes that would pollute the indoor air.
Join Us …
…As we rejoice together in God’s goodness, and his plan for humanity.
