Bishop Mansholt Pastoral Letter Regarding COVID-19

Dear Synod, Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus whose journey to the cross is our life and salvation.Every day we are receiving new information about COVID-19, the short-hand name for the disease coming from coronavirus 2019.  There are many types of coronaviruses, one of which is related to the common cold.  The one causing COVID-19, however, is a new or novel one previously not seen in humans.  While scientists and health professionals are still learning about COVID-19, the disease appears to be more serious and life-threatening than the flu, especially to older adults and the more vulnerable among us.
