Like nearly the rest of the world, I’ve been praying and reading and thinking and praying some more about how to address the ongoing hysteria surrounding COVID-19, a.k.a. the coronavirus. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) has declared this outbreak a “pandemic,” which has led countless establishments, organizations, and institutions to close their doors, not to mention the suspension, postponement, or cancellation of sporting events at both the collegiate and professional levels. Needless to say, the ramifications of COVID-19 are starting to taking a violent hold on our country’s social, economic, and political interests. I, however, am most fascinated by how the church will respond to this moment.
