Because Lutherans know what to do in a pandemic. Well, we do now. This week marks the one year anniversary of Emanuel's departure from regular campus activities. The church, however, never ceased. Throughout the year we remained alert, limited exposure, rested, washed endlessly, checked in with each other, offered healing support, spread calm, and supported those most vulnerable. Thanks be to God for being with us at all times. We've been apart, but never alone. WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER.
