Pastor Erko Sturm is in the middle of Easter preparations. For him, like all Christians, this year’s celebration will be radically different with churches closed to group worship and services being held online. But the 55-year-old has come up with a novel way to connect with his community without the help of technology.

“We invite everyone to put a candle in the window for everyone who is afraid, who is insecure, for the lonely, for the sick and for those who need help.” - Pastor Erko Sturm
