Descobri na Itália o Poder de Três Tipos de Oração

Salmos de lamento pareciam exagerados antes do COVID-19. Mas, em meio a 10.000 mortes, minha igreja em quarentena em Roma se identifica mais do que nunca com Davi.

Cosa Lutero Ci Insegna Sul Coronavirus

È fedele chi vuole sfuggire a un’epidemia? 
La riflessione del riformatore tedesco sulla peste può fungere da guida per i cristiani in Cina e dovunque il virus di Wuhan si è diffuso. Dal suo epicentro a Wuhan, in Cina, lo scoppio dell’attuale coronavirus sta alimentando la paura e ha bloccato viaggi ed affari in tutto il globo.
