Denominational leaders denounce Reynolds' decision to allow religious gatherings

From Iowa-

One day after Governor Kim Reynolds announced some restrictions will be lifted on Friday in Iowa, including religious gatherings, a group of denominational leaders are denouncing that decision.

In a statement from 21 religious leaders in Iowa, the group stated its asking all congregations and members across the state to refrain from in-person gatherings.

They recommend continuing social distancing procedures already put in place.
The full statement is below:

As denominational leaders in the Christian tradition, we are united in our concern regarding Governor Kim Reynolds’ declaration to allow spiritual and religious gatherings in Iowa.

It was with surprise we learned of the Governor’s proclamation and, as such, we feel compelled to provide clarity and guidance of what it means for congregations to be faithful and safe during these extraordinary times.
