As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to sweep through our American and Global landscape, we are grateful to have Dr. Barry share with us his experience and research in the common historical threads of infectious disease, its common courses and its impact on society.

Dr. John M. Barry is an American author and historian who has written books on the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, the influenza pandemic of 1918, and the development of the modern form of the ideas of separation of church and state and individual liberty. He is Distinguished Scholar and adjunct faculty at Tulane University. He is regularly sought after by policy-makers, and he has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, Fortune, The Washington Post, Esquire, and other publications and frequently appears as a guest commentator on networks in the U.S., including on NBC’s Meet the Press, ABC’s World News Tonight, PBS’s The News Hour, numerous NPR shows, and such foreign media as the BBC and Al Jazeera.

Some videos of his works are found here:

Holy Wednesday, April 8

Tenebrae (Latin, for “darkness” or “shadows”) is an extended candlelit meditation upon—and prelude to—the events in Jesus’ life between the Last Supper and the Resurrection. It draws upon the psalms, readings, and responses of Morning Prayer of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, as we are invited to reflect upon Jesus’ betrayal, his crucifixion, passion, and death, and to sit in patience and hope for the resurrection.

Start your day with Morning Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer, a communal service in which we pray the psalms, read Scripture together, and offer prayers for our church and the world. No Prayer Book needed! We’ll use the online service at this siteQuestions? Email Nathan Costa
