The spiritual health of the nation
The Society for Ecumenical Studies hosted its final Coronavirus-related webinar on Tuesday 15 September.
COVID has been a time of huge upheaval and an opportunity for soul-searching. Roger Dawson, Ann Morisy and John Swinton (see below the video for details) asked what we are learning as individuals and as society and responded to questions from participants.
