Saturday 2020: there is a time

We read, there is a time to live

Easter churches, silencing
their pews, emptying the

Trump said Easter is a “very special day for me.” “Wouldn’t it be great to have all of the churches full? You know the churches aren’t allowed, essentially, to have much of a congregation there,” Trump said. “You’ll have packed churches all over our country. I think it would be a beautiful time.” He added, “I’m not sure that’s going to be the day, but I would love to aim it right at Easter.” – Business Insider, March 24, 2020
