Ep. 8: COVID-19 Responses, Stimulus Money For Churches

On today’s program, more stories about the consequences of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, including how churches and Christian ministries are responding.  Also on today’s program:  A Christian group that ministers to the children of military personnel.

We begin today with news that Congress has passed a $2-trillion stimulus package that will include money for churches.  Churches will be able to apply for aid as part of the small business provision in the government’s $2 trillion coronavirus-related stimulus package.  And not everyone thinks it’s a good idea.
