The Fear, Facts & Faith series was developed by Gordon-Conwell’s Mockler Center for Faith and Ethics in the Public Square to help people think deeply and theologically about the COVID-19 global pandemic. It has expanded to equip people with resources to live out the Christian response to other current events as well. The series has featured experts in theology, epidemiology, economics, psychology, race, and leadership.
