Detroit pastors keep the faith after getting the coronavirus

From Michigan-

Flowers also urged Detroiters to follow social distancing and not congregate outside the home for church or other gatherings. 

His views are echoed by three Episcopal bishops in Michigan who wrote an open letter last week titled: "We believe in Jesus, science and staying home."

"As the Episcopal Bishops of the State of Michigan and as a people of faith, we follow the commandment Jesus gave us — to 'love our neighbors as ourselves,' "  wrote the Rt. Rev. Bonnie Perry, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan, the Rt. Rev. Whayne Hougland, Bishop of the Episcopal Dioceses of Eastern & Western Michigan, and the Rt. Rev. Rayford Ray, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan. "Loving our neighbors these days in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic means setting limits: quarantining, refraining from traveling, physical distancing when in public, and closing down places of gathering where transmission is likely. This is how we love our neighbors — by working to slow the spread of this extremely contagious, life-threatening virus."
