To the Editor,
At this difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, many people have come up with ideas to keep spirits up and have things be as normal as possible. There’s another group that have been doing so, also. From the beginning they’ve been doing this every week. In the small community of Canton in southeastern Minnesota, the Presbyterian Church has had a service of sorts every Sunday. Charlie Warner and Leroy and Kathy Haynes set up on the church steps, play music, and do a short sermon and prayers.
It’s open to everyone. People bring their lawn chairs, sit in their cars, even on blankets in their yards, or their neighbor’s yards with them.
It usually starts about 10 a.m. and lasts about an hour. It can brighten someone’s day and have it be as normal as possible.
With winter not far away, I’d say come visit some Sunday to brighten your day, too.
