Knoxville, Tennessee (Washington State)-With the Christmas holidays approaching, many East Tennessees will no longer participate in their normal traditions, such as attending church services in person.
With the surge in COVID-19 cases across the country, many clergy are working to make holiday church services safe for their congregations.
Dr. Phil Nordstrom, he is
Said that he did not want to force his people to come to church, but wanted to give them choices.
Nordstrom said: "For example, we have chairs in our auditorium, we pull out the middle row to keep our distance, and we also require everyone working here or volunteers working here to wear masks."
Nordstrom said that this year he also strengthened his social media influence by posting sermons online.
For Pastor Palmer Cantler
, Online is the only way she can connect with the congregation.
Canteler said: "We decided some time ago that we will no longer provide in-person church services by 2020."
She said it was not an easy decision, but it was the best.
Canteler said: "I commend those who have struggled and discovered in the past year on how to best love each other while still loving God."
Nordstrom says his job is not to make medical decisions for his own people.
"If I want people to listen to me on mental issues, I'd better listen to their (doctor) medical advice," Nordstrom said.
Nordstrom and his family both contracted the virus in July and recovered from it. He said that this gave him personal experience and helped him understand the dangers of this virus.
Both churches provide online messages on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Both churches added that they will continue to worship online for at least the next few weeks.

Knoxville, Tennessee (Governor)-The possible impeachment of President Donald Trump may take place on Wednesday, a week after the chaos on Capitol Hill.
The country is preparing for an unprecedented situation-
Just a few days before another inauguration. If President Trump is impeached for the second time, it will be the first time in American history.
Knoxville, Tennessee (Washington State)-The city of Knoxville wants to hear that people have creatively supported their neighbors during difficult times.
The city’s community empowerment office is accepting nominations for the annual Diana Conn Neighbor of the Year Award.
Cork County, Tennessee (Western Australia)-A lawsuit has been filed in the Cook County Prison. The lawsuit held that the sheriff and others did not take precautions to protect the prisoners there.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the prisoners in the prison, especially Dexter Manning. Manning suffered a series of injuries during his detention in 2019.
In times of crisis, even if only temporarily, many people turn to religion. For example, after the attack on September 11, 2001, church attendance across the country was short-lived
, People face fear and seek community and meaning. Therefore, a special challenge for the church is that our current crisis requires us to stay at home. Most of the largest churches in the country have chosen
Beginning this weekend, you will sometimes be pressured by local bans on large gatherings, or will be directed by sect leaders. Many small churches have also cancelled on-site services and are trying to find ways to meet online or to meet the spiritual needs of their congregations during times of high anxiety. As a result, there is an urgent need for comfortable services, and various local church services are circulating to the audience online.
Most large churches have broadcast their services online, or at least have advanced recording equipment and technical and creative personnel to produce professional broadcasts. Many of these large churches have normal "performances" on Sundays, with worship band performances and priests preaching to empty auditoriums or small groups of staff. On the Eden Prairie of Grace Church in Minnesota, senior pastor Troy Dobbs gave a sermon in an empty auditorium that can accommodate 4,200 people. At Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church, dozens of staff members filled rows of chairs in front of Houston’s former Compaq Center. This competition The field can accommodate 16,000 people. Smaller churches are scrambling to provide services and other resources online. Many people are coming to Facebook Live for the first time. At the Presbyterian Church in Sudbury, Massachusetts, Pastor Desiree Lawson used the video conferencing service Zoom to lead a service in her home and invited church members to enter their prayer requests into the chat function.
The leaders directly resolved the virus, acknowledging the fears of the parishioners and trying to provide spiritual comfort. At the Washington National Cathedral, Bishop Michael Curry
At the wedding of Meghan Markle and Harry Prince, he ended his sermon by moving the a cappella of the children's song "Jesus Loves Me". At Crossroads Church, a large church in Cincinnati and Kentucky, pastor Brian Tome invited community members (including Cincinnati City Council members, a school teacher and a full-time mother) to come on stage to share peace of mind and anxiety. He responded with prayer. (Tome recorded a video last Monday. This video has been deleted. He analyzed the virus and then cancelled the real-time service on Thursday.) He seemed to be trying to find the right tone of service, and once joked "Shame on Your suggestion is to not stand employees 6 feet away from the suggestion. But his sermon was titled "How to Deal with Crisis."
Some leaders shared their experience with the virus during the service. At the Washington National Cathedral, Bishop Mariann * Edgar Budde (Mariann * Edgar Budde) sent a brief introductory message from her home. She was learning that she had been in contact with someone who had recently been positive. After being self-isolating. (She is waiting for her test results.) In Life.Church, a large multi-site church in 11 states, Pastor Craig Groeschel talked about his two-week isolation experience to end his sermon. Groeschel and Bobby Gruenewald, another director of Life.Church, attended a large church leadership meeting in Germany, where people who had a small dinner with them were diagnosed with the virus. Groeschel and Gruenewald discovered this person's condition when they turned on Wi-Fi on the flight home. They immediately alerted the flight attendants, and the flight attendants cleared the surrounding space on the plane. "Now I know what it would be like to be a leper," he said with a smile. He admitted that his self-quarantine period was completely different from the dilemmas faced by others in the next few months, but he said that this was still one of the most difficult periods in his life: "We were not created as one person."
Preaching is usually a solo performance, but church music (public singing and worship) is difficult to replicate without a congregation. At the Washington National Cathedral, the four choir members were a few feet apart, accompanied by an organ player, singing choral music and hymns, singing empty seats. In many contemporary churches, bands usually perform their usual worship songs on the big stage and record them with sophisticated cameras to obscure the fact that there are empty seats in front of them. In smaller churches, music is sometimes composed of pianists and solo singers, and is filmed with still cameras and amateur recording equipment that pick up all the echoes in the empty room.
Many Sundays this weekend have obvious embarrassing moments: empty rooms, rudimentary technology, and in some cases, priests seem to be incomparable. But for those who attend church activities every week, including myself, watching these temporary services is still a comfort. At the Upper East Side of the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, at the end of the ceremony, a string quartet and a pianist accompanied the singer to perform on the stage. The singer performed 19
The hymn of the century "My soul is good", this is a song that can be assured in peace and sorrow.
After the service, the live broadcast of the church sanctuary lasted a few minutes as the band collected music scores and packed up their instruments. The staff wore several pairs of rubber gloves, tidying up the stage and chatting. When watching at home, it was a deep impression of casual, lively interpersonal interactions. Many of us may have not witnessed it again for weeks, let alone participated in it-an unexpected spiritual relief, although short and short. accidental. Then, carefully keeping a few feet apart from each other, the last few people in the sanctuary of the church put on their coats and walked out of the frame. The screen went black.
Correction, March 16, 2020: This song originally misspelled the name Mariann Edgar Budde.

Paris (Reuters)-From the stage of the evangelical church, the leader of the gospel choir started a night of prayer and preaching: "We want to celebrate the Lord! Are you happy tonight?"
"Yes!" On February 18, hundreds of people gathered in the Christian Open Door Church yelled. Some of them participated in thousands of events and attended the week-long Mulhouse gathering. Mulhouse is a city with 100,000 people on the border between France, Germany and Switzerland.
For many members of this global flock, the annual celebration is the highest point of the church calendar.
This time, someone in the congregation was carrying the coronavirus.
The local government said that the prayer meeting kicked off the largest COVID-19 cluster in France so far, which is one of the worst-hit countries in Northern Europe. There are approximately 2500 confirmed cases related to it. Worshipers in the church unintentionally brought diseases caused by the virus to Burkina Faso in West Africa, Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea, Guyana in Latin America, nuclear power plants in Switzerland and France, and workshops of one of Europe's largest car manufacturers.
A few weeks later, Germany partially closed its border with France, suspending the Free Action Agreement that had been in place for the past 25 years. Two people familiar with the German decision told Reuters that the church group was a key factor. Church officials told Reuters that since then, 17 members of the congregation have died from complications related to the disease.
Other religious gatherings have also been linked to the spread of the virus: A large church in South Korea has caused more than 5,000 cases there. This story was told to Reuters by members of the Christian Open Door Church and officials involved in the response to the epidemic, and proved the speed and ferocity of the coronavirus infection. While public health managers are still preparing for the coronavirus, the disease is working on its own, unrelenting schedule-the schedule has quickly exceeded any measures they can take.
When believers gathered in the church on a sunny Tuesday night, an old shopping center was transformed into a 2500-seat auditorium, and the disease seemed remote. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are 12 confirmed cases in France. There is no one in Mulhouse.
Like the governments of other Nordic countries, France does not impose any restrictions on large conferences. There is no alcohol gel for the congregation to clean their hands, no elbow bumps instead of shaking hands.
"At the time, we saw COVID as something out of reach," said Jonathan Peterschmitt, the son of the chief pastor and grandson of the church founder. His son and a church spokeswoman said his father Samuel could not be interviewed because he had been infected with the virus.
On February 29, the day after the first case related to the church was determined, public health officials followed regular procedures and tracked people who were in contact with the carrier to stop the spread. Using the list provided by the church (with full cooperation from public health officials), they first contacted the person who staffed the children’s nursery during the gathering.
At this time, the health inspector realized that they were too late. Michel Vernay, an epidemiologist at the French national public health agency in eastern France, said that some nursery staff have become ill.
"We are at a loss," Vernay said. "We realized there was a time bomb in front of us."
Among the congregation was local Elie Widmer, a 37-year-old manager of a house construction company. His parents were members of the church, which was founded in 1966 by the French shopkeeper Jean Peterschmitt. His wife unexpectedly cured her illness and accepted the gospel.
Widmer said that he left the church when he was a teenager, but returned. He hopes to spend the whole year at the party in Mulhouse. He said: "That week you felt special energy. For a week, you stopped everything to recover spiritually." As the drummer of the church orchestra, he Participate every week.
From further afield is Antoinette, a 70-year-old grandmother who lives in Corsica in the Mediterranean. For her, gatherings are part of a 25-year tradition.
Antoinette and five other women went to worship at the Bethel Evangelical Church in Ajaccio, the capital. The condition of her speech was that she had not been fully identified, and that believers were insulted by people outside the church for spreading the virus.
Antoinette suffers from chronic lung disease and requires regular treatment. When these women flew out of Corsica on February 16, they looked forward to combining evangelical workshops with tour shops.
"We know nothing," she said from Ajaccio's house. "We did not consider this epidemic."
Neither did Mamadou Karambiri. He took an Air France flight from Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport on February 14.
He is the pastor of his church in Africa and the co-founder of an organization called "International Evangelical Mission Center-African Internal Affairs Corps". Karambiri is a glamorous speaker with the power of white hair. He is the star preacher of this conference.
His church is a warehouse-style building that occupies a block in Ouagadougou. According to a believer, the church can hold 12,000 people. A huge white cross stands on the red muddy street outside. Across the road is a studio that broadcasts the preaching of the pastor to the believers sitting on the blue plastic chairs through TV.
Aristide A. Ouedrago, a spokesperson for Karambiri, said that Karambiri went to Mulhouse with his wife and a bodyguard. The pastor refused to be interviewed for this story through his secretary.
Ouedrago said he believed that the virus was not in France when Karambiri was traveling, even though there were actually 12 cases.
In Mulhouse, the Christian Open Door Church stands opposite a rotisserie. Above the parking lot is a four-story white metal cross.
Health officials said that there were two other children who were still gathered in the church. Their mother was already sick before the incident. The mother stayed at home, but their grandfather took the children away-the older one was five years old and one year younger.
French public health official Vernay said that these children and their mothers will be tested positive for coronavirus in the future, making their mothers a potential source of the disease. For public health officials, it is not clear where Vernay's mother, who did not want to be identified, was infected.
This week’s schedule includes gospel choir performances, group prayers, singing, preachers’ preaching, workshops, and testimonies from those who say that God has cured the disease.
The founder’s son, Jonathan Peterschmitt, said at home that the most attended meetings can accommodate up to 2500 people, and the number of participants is not less than 1,000. Many people come here to spend a few hours day after day. He said: "So we stayed in the same petri dish for a week."
Church spokesperson Nathalie Schnoebelen said that by the end of the meeting on February 21, no one had reported flu-like symptoms. At that time, the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in France remained stable at 12.
In late February, drummer Widmer began to feel unwell. His wife, three children and his mother-in-law are also sick.
On March 3, WHO recorded 91 new COVID-19 cases in France, bringing the country's total to 191. The church posted on its Facebook page that the church should contact the doctor when it found the infected woman and her two children.
Widmer dialed number 15, which is the emergency medical service in France. There are not enough test suites to test him. But the doctor diagnosed the coronavirus and ordered him to be isolated from his family.
Within three days, he developed fever and severe headache, and lost his sense of taste and smell. He said he was not particularly worried: his family members had mild symptoms. He has since recovered but is still in self-isolation.
The virus spread through the family of the founder of the church. About a dozen members are now recovering.
A few miles across the border, German officials are watching increasingly vigilantly.
They received a report from the Robert Koch Institute, the German national public health agency, which listed eastern France along with China’s Hubei Province, Iran, Italy, and North Gyeongsang Province as the world’s four high-prevalence coronaviruses. Area. Daegu City, where the Korean church broke out. By March 11, the total number of COVID-19 in France at the WHO had jumped to 1,774, with 33 deaths.
According to official data, about 45,000 French workers commute to Germany every day-about one-fifth of them come from the Mulhouse region. Most of the jobs are in Baden-Württemberg, Germany’s affluent industrial area, where car manufacturers Porsche and Mercedes-Benz live. Europa-Park is a theme park on the Rhine River in Germany and is the main employer of French employers.
After attending the party, a worker from the Fessenheim nuclear power plant near Mulhouse in France tested positive. A representative of the power company said that the power plant’s operator, EDF (EdF), ordered the other 20 companies to self-quarantine at home, but their operations were not disturbed. Another person attending the party worked at the Peugeot Citroen factory on the edge of Mulhouse; people familiar with the matter said that person was also infected.
German officials in Baden-Württemberg decided to take action to impose restrictions on cross-border movement.
The French government asked Berlin for an explanation. On March 16, German Chancellor Angela Merkel delivered a speech to French President Emmanuel Macron. A German government official gave a brief introduction on the conference call. They talked about the clusters in eastern France and the dangers of commuters. They then agreed to close the border and prohibit the passage of freight vehicles and people other than those on important trips. A French official confirmed the content of the discussion.
The police showed up at the previously unmanned border post and asked the car driver to ask his employer for documents proving the importance of travel. The cargo truck has been backed up.
But the disease has come out. The Swiss Federation of Evangelical Churches stated on its website that Swiss residents who attended the meeting brought the virus back to the evangelical community near Lausanne. The Public Health Department of French Guiana said that they found five people who went to the rally and also tested positive.
After attending a church meeting and returning to his home in Corsica, Antoinette felt the effects of the weather.
She attributed this to travel and continued to meet with other church members in Ajaccio. On March 2, nine days after returning home, she received a call from Mulhouse describing the epidemic there.
She was hospitalized overnight, was tested, and became one of the first COVID-19 cases on the French island of Corsica on March 4. She has been in self-isolation since then, and her church has suspended services. As of March 27, 263 people on Corsica were infected with the coronavirus, and 21 of them died.
On March 16, Antoinette said: “People are pointing the finger at me. They need a scapegoat.” She said that some people outside the circle expressed doubts about evangelical Christians and accused her of bringing the virus into Corsica. Jonathan Peterschmitt, the son of Pastor Mulhouse, said that other people in the congregation were verbally attacked by strangers for spreading the infection, and now they are afraid to reveal their identity.
As of March 20, France had received more than 10,000 cases of COVID-19. About a quarter are in Great Este, including Mulhouse. Local public health official Vernay said that "the vast majority" of them can be traced back to churches.
Since the region has more severe cases than intensive care beds, some patients have been helicoptered to Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg. The French military has established a field hospital in a green metal tent.
Pastor Karambiri and his wife were at their home in Ouagadougou. After becoming ill on March 1, they went to a local clinic, tested positive and isolated themselves until March 20.
At the end of the self-set quarantine period, he broadcasted a message to his followers in a video posted on the organization's Facebook page. He was sitting on the sofa, his Bible was on his lap, and his wife was next to him. He told them about the infection.
He said that the coronavirus is "a Satanic plan that was conceived a long time ago to destroy the world. But God is watching us and he will lead people out."

For the first time in many years, St. Luke’s United Christian Church in 1403 South Road will not hold a German concert at 5 pm on Christmas Eve.
It is innovating with churches in other regions to celebrate Christmas safely during the pandemic.
The 80-member church that was built in 1877 has been closed and restarted since Palm Sunday in response to prices in the COVID-19 area, but it is still planning for in-person service on Christmas Eve, but proceed with caution and reduce some Tradition.
The secretary of the church, Deloris Blaufuss, said: "We will keep our distance and masks from society. We will only play organ music, not singing."
"We usually sing'Silent Night, Holy Night' in German and English. Since we were a German congregation, it has always been a tradition to sing in German first. This year we will hear its words on the organ as the only announcement. , But we don't sing loudly." Brouvers said.
The candles traditionally lit during maintenance will be battery powered. There is no Chrismon (shelter) tree and no church decorations.
Brouvers said: "We will miss this too, but if we can celebrate Christmas together and treat the party as a party, it will be enough for this year. We will be lucky to be able to do this."
She said that if the COVID rate worsens, St. Luke will cancel its Christmas Eve service.
The First Christian Church at 1221 Park Ave. has found a new safe way to adapt and connect.
Since May 31, the church began to provide parking services.
The pastor of the church, David Yonker, said: "Even if the weather is clear, even if people are sitting in cars, sometimes even on lawn chairs, we still gather in a safe way."
For churches that already publish services online, the transition to the new method of worship is seamless.
This includes Christmas Eve service, which will be available at 7pm and 9pm. The parking lot service will be at 5 pm and 7 pm with a special edition candlelight "Silent Night". The message will be "This is my little light", verse John 1:1-14. There are no plans to provide on-site service.
Yanke said: "We will use glow sticks instead of candles on Christmas Eve. Instead of spending extra money to print announcements for the usual 600 people on Christmas Eve, we upgraded the sound system and FM radio transmitter," Yonker said. .
In the past few years, people from the Catholic Diocese of Holy Mercy have gathered in the Burlington Memorial Hall or Church to celebrate the birth of the Savior.
This year, to go to Mass on Christmas Eve and Christmas, you need to plan ahead and keep your distance from society.
The father of the parish priest Marty Goetz (Marty Goetz) has arranged six mass masses on Christmas Eve. The number of seats is limited and there should be a check-in on Monday. Mass is at 4 pm and 7 pm in Notre Dame de Paris, at 5, 8 and 11 pm in St. John’s Church, and at 6 o’clock in St. Mary in Dodgeville. Need a mask.
The crowd of St. John’s Church can also participate in the parking lot, and will be broadcast live on the Divine Mercy Facebook page at 4pm on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Mass at 8 am and 10 am at St. John’s Church.
Goetz said in a letter to the residents of the parish: "In this year of COVID-19 that is full of changes, we need more than ever to celebrate Christmas and its impact on a pandemic and uncertainty. The hope of people in the dark."
During these terrible times, he said: "One thing will remain the same." He quoted Luke 2:8-10 as saying: "Now there are shepherds living in the fields in this area, watching their flocks at night. The Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, filling them with fear.
"The angel said to them:'Don't be afraid; I want to proclaim to you the good news that will bring joy to all people. Today in the City of David, there is a Savior born for you, and Christ is the Lord..."
Traditionally, many United Methodist churches light each other’s Christmas candles and sing "Silent Night" on Christmas Eve.
However, “at least until Sunday, January 17, our United Methodist bishop instructed all United Methodist churches in Iowa not to meet in person in the building and will then reassess the virus situation,” Tamara Pastor Witt said, the pastor of Burlington Grace and West Hill United Methodist Church.
Witte will broadcast live or post her pre-recorded Christmas message on the church's Facebook page.
She believes that in the pandemic, people can still find hope for this season.
She said: "The Lord did not leave the world to leave his existence, but sent his Holy Spirit to be our eternal companion, which is really great."
