For many Christians, the story of Easter is a welcome metaphor for dealing with the coronavirus. Pastor Joel McKenney of Algoma’s St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church and Pastor Nancy Bontempo of Friends Community Church both say the fear associated with the coronavirus will sneak its way into their Easter messages when they talk to listeners on Sunday. McKenney hopes Jesus’ resurrection gives them the hope they need to move past it.
Bontempo believes the story of Easter is the exact opposite of the hopelessness people are feeling right now.
Area Christians will be logging onto their computers, sitting in front of the TV, and tuning their radios for Easter services. The radio stations of DoorCountyDailyNews.com will feature five Easter services this weekend, including St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at 9 a.m. and Friends Community Church at 10 a.m. on 96.7 WBDK.
