Whitney Tilson and Samaritans Purse

Whitney Tilson had come down from his Fifth Avenue apartment to walk the dog when he noticed the trucks. Right there, in Central Park, were stacks of tarps and white tents, all "bearing a name he had never heard of -- Samaritan's Purse." He found out the group was building a field hospital for his fellow New Yorkers and asked if he could help. He hasn't stopped, Yonat Shimron writes, since.

"Love looks like an empty sanctuary," one pastor said. But after weeks of not gathering in person, it's the emptiness in the offering plate that's really hurting churches. And it's not necessarily the pastors' salaries or the building upkeep that worries leaders. It's the impact on ministry. "If this keeps up," one Baltimore pastor told the AP, "we can't fund all [of] our outreach to help other people." But, thanks to the Trump administration's insistence that churches be included in the virus relief, the president had good news: Help is on the way! (It just required some last-minute fixes first.)
