Pastors Say China Easing Up on Churches
Recent meetings between government officials and leaders of banned underground Protestant house churches marked the first step toward reconciliation in decades, the Rev. Ezra Jin said.
Jin, who founded his Zion house church two years ago, said the government, including the police, have realized the time for confrontation is past.
“The government is anxious to work out the way to go forward,” said Jin, noting he prays and sings with several hundred worshippers each Sunday in Beijing.
