Discerning our Christian response to Covid and Vaccination
By Rev. Dr. Graham O’Brien, Dean of Nelson Cathedral
Published in Nelson Anglicans
As we journey through this new covid world it is often hard to navigate all the information that is out there and decide what is correct and what is not, alongside how we respond as Christians to all the different issues and points of view. In these brief reflections I am writing as someone who has been an ordained priest for the past 15 years, a theological educator with experience in bioethics, and as a trained scientist including working in vaccine development. I have also included some helpful comments from Assoc Prof Lance Jennings, retired Clinical Virologist at the Canterbury DHB and a Cathedral Parishioner.
Dr Yun is a specialist in immunology and allergies. It considers most aspects of concern about Covid vaccines It also acknowledges the importance of prayer and turning to Christ with our anxieties. It tackles a lot of the confusion and misgivings that many people have.
