Rev. Keith Norman urges Black churches to go virtual during COVID spread


Rev. Keith Norman poses for a portrait inside the sanctuary at First Baptist Church- Broad on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021. New precautions will be set in place following a surge of new infections due to the delta variant.

The Rev. Keith Norman is ready to sound the alarm. 

The number of COVID-19 cases is at an all-time high. Hospitals are strained. Funeral homes are rushing to keep up. 

Now, Norman, who is pastor of First Baptist Church – Broad and vice president of government relations and chief community relations officer at Baptist Memorial Health Care, is urging Black churches to go virtual once again and to restrict other social events.

If the gathering isn’t necessary, don’t have it, he says.

“I have been concerned all along that this variant is impacting the African American community,” Norman said. “We have to warn people to the vast number of deaths taking place so that people if they’re not going to get the vaccination will restrict their gathering.”
