Church of the Brethren Annual Conference moderator Paul Mundey has announced plans for a Moderator’s Town Hall on June 4 at 7 p.m. (Eastern time), held in online webinar format. The topic will be “Faith, Science, and COVID-19” with leadership from Dr. Kathryn Jacobsen, professor in the Department of Global and Community Health at George Mason University, Fairfax, Va.
Jacobsen is a specialist in infectious disease epidemiology and global health who has consulted with a number of organizations during the COVID-19 crisis. She is a member of Oakton Church of the Brethren in Vienna, Va., valuing her connection to faith and the Church of the Brethren.
Commenting on the upcoming town hall, Mundey said, “As we continue to move through the COVID-19 crisis, the relationship between faith and science is rising in importance, especially as church leaders gauge when to reopen church campuses. I anticipate our town hall will provide a lively dialogue about the tension between ‘moving out in faith,’ and the wisdom of heeding medical, scientific realities.”
