A Report from the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy (ACSWP), May, 2020

Jesus designed a test for faithfulness even before his movement got a brand name: "You will know them by their fruits" (Matthew 7:16, NRSV).

Lack of testing is one of the biggest problems with the Covid19, as this coronavirus does not always produce symptoms. The acknowledged US death rate is approaching 100,000 and ranges in unknown but growing numbers in countries without strong medical systems. People may well be asymptomatic, unknowing carriers, and if not wearing masks, some are deliberately negligent. Adding to the symptoms of an over-priced but under-performing US healthcare system, we have moral confusion, denial, and incompetence visible at the highest levels of government.

This issue of Salt & Light looks at the social witness challenges facing our semi-quarantined church, sheltering under God’s grace and worshipping mainly in our inner temples of the Holy Spirit.
