These were the years when churches created livestream or drive-in services and outdoor meetings. People gathered to worship in freezing temperatures, finding legal ways to connect. Many of us found our true families during this time. German pastor Tobias Riemenschneider, author of Resisting Tyranny said,
“Singing in worship was prohibited in Germany for seven months . . . good training to see whether you (were) actually courageous.”
