Luther and Pandemic
As we were deciding as a church how to respond to the coronavirus outbreak, one of the resources I consulted was Martin Luther's Whether One May Flee From a Deadly Plague. In this open letter, Luther outlined what he saw as the faithful Christian response in a time of deadly disease. Even though it was written nearly 500 years ago, Luther's ethical insights are still applicable today. And so, in this week's edition of Pastor's Study, I walk us through Luther's teaching and how it can help us today.
