These Black and White Churches Began Worshipping Together During the Pandemic and Haven’t Stopped

posted on February 14, 2023

For The Washington Post, Rona Kobell reports that three United Methodist Churches, two majority-white and one majority-black, have continued their pandemic-era tradition of gathering for Sunday services. She writes, “A spur-of-the-moment idea to bring the faithful together during the pandemic has become a once-a-month gathering where hundreds of worshipers honk along to a boisterous service that offers a mix of polemics, politics and preaching.” Pastor Deangelo Antonius “Tony” Johnson, the minister of Macedonia United Methodist Church, said, “For years we were separate, but when 2020 came around, we found there was a better way.”
