WEB Christians in Hong Kong protests

Howard, a 26-year-old seminary student, addresses the Christian service held at Hong Kong’s Chater Garden on Aug. 23, 2019, in Hong Kong. “Since the beginning of June, I have gone to the protests to provide young people with a positive mindset,” he said. “As Christians, we have to know how to stand in front of the authorities and walk in the truth of God so we can have justice. In the Bible it says Jesus loves everyone, including the police, but the people from the front lines don’t love the police. I tell them God sees everyone, including the police, and he will judge in the end.” First names are being used to protect individuals. RNS photo by Alexandra Radu
