INNOVATIVE CHURCH SERVICES
Religion News Service reports that American churches that have continued to meet in person in their buildings have done so with smaller gatherings, social distancing, mask wearing and other measures meant to protect worshippers from COVID-19. Others have hosted drive-in services. At least one held a kayak service. And, with many sports cancelled for the season, some churches — like South Bend City Church — have filled the stands at the empty stadiums and ballparks in their neighbourhoods. First Baptist Church in McKinney, Texas, encouraged members to wear their favourite jerseys to its “Stadium Service” at the local school district’s football stadium.
MR ETERNITY ON STAGE
In 1932 when Arthur Stace heard evangelist John G. Ridley preach about Eternity, he was inspired to write the word ‘Eternity’ in chalk on the streets of Sydney and Melbourne over 500,000 times. According to Eternity News, the theatre company Clock and Spiel Productions are planning to develop Mr Eternity—The Story of Arthur Stace for the stage.
SEQUEL TO “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST”
