Religious service, steeped as it is in community, is one area where people are finding it hard to avoid gathering amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Pastor Tony Spell, right, has continued to hold services with hundreds of congregants at the Life Tabernacle Church. Life Tabernacle wasn't the only church to defy public orders and open their doors to parishioners on Sunday. A statement released by religious leaders across Canada on Monday urged people to follow public health officials' guidelines. "What we see pastor Spell doing is giving way to this ancient tradition of linking faith in God with healing in the body," said Storin.
