“C.S. Lewis on the Coronavirus”The Gospel Coalition
“It’s now clear that COVID-19 is a deadly serious global pandemic, and all necessary precautions should be taken. Still, C. S. Lewis’s words—written 72 years ago—ring with some relevance for us. Just replace ‘atomic bomb’ with ‘coronavirus.'”

“A Different Kind of Calling: Spiritual Disciplines in Uncertain Times” Christianity Today
“Spiritual disciplines matter all the time, but we need to be reminded of that in tumultuous times.”

“Coronavirus, Vulnerability and Dignity”ThinkingPastorally
“Our Christianity should be marked by an understanding of the dignity of people which is so deep and theologically rooted that we can never reduce the ocean of significance contained in each and every person by a single drop. It should also prohibit us from dismissing outliers as the kind of collateral loss which might be expected when serious illness strikes.”

Israel: “Corona is Slowing Down, Humanity Will Survive, Says Biophysicist Michael Levitt”CTech
“‘That is my message: you need to think of corona like a severe flu. It is four to eight times as strong as a common flu, and yet, most people will remain healthy and humanity will survive.'”

“The Person of Jesus: Wayne Taylor, CGN Leader”Calvary Global Network
“Pastor Wayne Taylor of Calvary Fellowship in Seattle, WA, discusses ‘The Person of Jesus.’ “Jesus was the ultimate leader: He led as a servant-leader, and He inspired people to want to follow. He’s this leader that is humble and gentle but very very powerful…I would hope that if I’m going to be a leader, I would follow that example: A servant-leader” – Wayne Taylor'”

“Essential Church: Identity, Power and Mission”–
“What is the Church? What does Calvary Chapel represent as part of the Church? How do I need to understand my identity in Christ? These are just a few questions we will tackle and discuss under the broad theme of ‘identity’ at the Calvary Chapel CGN International Conference on June 29 – July 2, 2020.”

“The Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church”Back to Basics
“Here is the important thing to realize: The church did not exist during the sixty-nine weeks. Therefore, there is no reason to believe that the church will have any part in the final seventieth week. The seventy weeks, in their entirety, pertain primarily to the nation of Israel.”
