I am a minister in a local church in Minnesota. We hold services in a local church. My question is... if we hold services during inclement weather, when the National Weather Bureau has issued a Weather or Windchill Warning stating that "dangerous conditions exist" or "travel not advised", are we positioning ourselves for some type of civil or criminal action should one of the attendees suffer injury related to their travel to the services? Do we incur liability by not cancelling a Public Meeting when there is a clear and present danger?
