Resources On Covid And Religious Liberty

The Covid crisis has been one of the greater challenges faced by the church in the West in recent years. In the USA and elsewhere it has divided congregations and probed weaknesses in our theology, piety, and practice. It has raised questions of religious liberty, wisdom, and tested our patience. In some congregations, where one stands on masks and Covid regulations has become a test of orthodoxy. Below is a collection of essays and interviews written and produced since the pandemic regulations were first put into place in the Spring of 2020. They touch on the question of who is authorized to administer communion, the nature of and limits of civil disobedience, religious liberty, submission to authorities, interpreting providence and more.
