Faith leaders look at the bright side

Pastor Joel McKenney of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Algoma has preached in front of small numbers before, but nothing prepared him for the last few weeks. Like all churches across the country, clergy members have not been able to open their doors for services due to a ban on mass gatherings of 10 people or more. This has forced them to find alternate ways to reach their members and also receive donations to keep their churches thriving. McKenney prefers to look at the positives. He says technology has made their services more accessible to those who have not been able to attend in person in years, let alone weeks.

Views for St. Paul’s services on Facebook have averaged between 300 and 500 views since churches had to stop holding them in person.
