“I see getting the vaccine as my love for you, my love for my family, and community, by making sure that we are all safe together. ” – Rev. Terri Hord Owens
General Minister and President Owens joins with National Benevolent Association and Week of Compassion to collaborate with Disciples leaders who, along with the interfaith Faiths4Vaccines group, are encouraging everyone to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, thereby showing God’s limitless love in very real terms. In the race to vaccinate the populations of the United States and Canada, faith leaders are leading by example by receiving the vaccine while advocating for equitable distribution. Congregations are encouraged to join in by hosting vaccination sites or facilitating vaccination with transportation and awareness campaigns.
