  1. Thank you President Harris for your wise Counsel on this,and for keeping people informed.
    May Almighty God bless you and the LCMS.

  2. Rev. Dr. Brian J. Hesse says:

    Thank President Harrison for offering counsel on this important issue. However, I believe the LCMS should be providing stronger support and encouragement towards getting the vaccine. The resources offered are both helpful and informative. The first 2 vaccines approved are both included on the list of “Ethically Uncontroversial CoV-19 Programs” cited in the resources. There is no reason to believe that the COVID-19 vaccines are contributing to the awful problem of abortion. It is not as if abortions are happening to provide fetal tissue for testing. To connect these 2 issues casts doubt a vaccine that is demonstrating to be helpful. The LCMS made no mention to the other efforts and positive strides made in developing this vaccine.
