Churches make proposal for safe reopening after Blue Creek arrests

Posted: Monday, November 2, 2020. 7:39 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Following a police raid of a church service in Blue Creek, Orange Walk, yesterday, an organization called the Alliance of Ministers and Leaders of Belize (AMLB) is presenting a proposal to authorities for the safe reopening of churches.

 The Alliance’s recommendations include that families attending church be seated together in groups either by pews or chairs; that each family maintains a healthy distance of 6 feet; that congregations refrain from hugs or handshakes; that those who minister or pray wear a mask during service; and that ushers and greeters wear masks at all times.

“The church has always been essential and will continue to be so since it is; a bearer of hope, the one that hasn’t stopped in these times of uncertainty feeding those who have suffered because of the pandemic, consoling and bringing spiritual and emotional medicine to those who suffer in these times, always sharing and placing in each heart a word of security and of course praying for our beautiful nation,” the AMLB said.

The Allaince also condemned the Belize Police Department for its treatment of the Orange Walk Pastor and parishioners calling it a violation of their right to religious freedom, as well as condemned the Senator representing the churches for not speaking on the issue.
