Idaho Churches Gear Up To Resume In-Person Worship

From Idaho-

Episcopal Bishop Brian Thom says the 26 churches in Idaho's Diocese will not resume in-person worship until at least May 24.

"Everything about church is contrary to social distancing," Thom quipped. "The sitting in tight quarters, the passing of the peace and the common cup." 

"I have a weekly meeting with my clergy on zoom, and I thought they were going to be pushing to open but it was quite the opposite," the Bishop said.

The Episcopal Church in Idaho has good reason to be cautious. The parrish in Sun Valley was an early epicenter of the virus.

"It began in the choir," Thom explained. "Somebody from the choir attended a community event and then went to choir practice that week."
