This COVID pandemic has challenged the world, us as Christians individually and corporately as a Synod. Jesus’ words on the night of His betrayal are ever true: “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
