Letters to the Editor

Churches should listen to God

The Gazette recently published an open letter from a group of church leaders regarding Gov. Kim Reynolds’ decision to allow in-person gatherings, asking her to reconsider.

Why? Why not let individual churches decide whether to hold services?

The people who signed this letter trust the pastors who are under their purview to teach God’s word to their congregations. Do you not trust them to prayerfully consider whether they should hold in-person services and ask for God’s guidance?

When you have God to guide your decisions, what does it matter whether the government decides a thing is permitted or not?

Pastors who lead those churches should seek God’s guidance on whether to meet in person, not Kim Reynolds.
