ALR217 – Coronapalooza, Part 3

So much has changed since Lloyd and Pastor Bennett reviewed the various government responses to COVID-19 we thought it would be a good idea to go back and re-assess based on new information and to see how those policies have changed and what harm or good they have done.

Listen to parts one and two of this discussion in episodes 212 and 213!

Reformation Gun Club members can hear both episodes 212 and 213 together in one show as well as an extended version of episode 217!

Prayer of the Week

Merciful Father, who by the humiliation of Your Son raised up the fallen world, grant to Your faithful people perpetual gladness, and make those whom You have delivered from the danger of everlasting death to be partakers of eternal joys; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
