In 2021, the Saint Paul Area Synod held Tool Kit online for the very first time, with more than 300 people joining us on Zoom. We enjoyed a robust conversation with Dr. Michael Osterholm, who shared an ominous prediction for challenging weeks yet to come due to coronavirus variants, pandemic fatigue and vaccine fears. He shared his thoughts on the importance of equitable vaccinations throughout the world, not only for humanitarian purposes, but also for pandemic-ending strategic purposes. Dr. Osterholm commended church leaders for their important work, saying “This is a time we need faith communities more than we’ve ever needed them before…ever.” Click below to watch a recording of the conversation:
