About The Event
Speakers: - David Vallance MD (Livonia, Michigan) - Lindsay Parks DO (Indiana, PA) - Alexander Higgins MD (Barrington, NJ)
Session 1: COVID-19 Pandemic Review and Update - Dr. Vallance will review current COVID-19 statistics and projection models, review current and potential therapies, and discuss conspiracy theories and antivaccination biases.
Session 2: Government Directives and Current Best Practices to “Flatten the Curve” and Protect the Vulnerable - Dr. Parks will examine the rationale for government regulations, what “community mitigation” involves, policies that assemblies might adopt when they are permitted to meet again, and the value of continuing live-streamed and Zoom sessions for some scenarios.
Session 3: Addressing the Tension Between COVID-19 Requirements and Biblical Principles - Dr. Higgins will review what the Bible teaches about civil disobedience and whether COVID-19 directives call for that response. He will offer suggestions to overseers who wish to gather as biblically as possible and yet with a sensitivity towards the COVID-19 risks, especially for the sake of vulnerable saints within a local assembly.
Sessions will be 20-25 minutes each, followed by a Q&A period at the end of the webinar.
