    Episode 221 - Okay, Karen

    Lloyd and Pastor Bennett dig back into the mailbag to answer an email from a listener who was critical of Lloyd's commentary in episode 220.
    Listen to Episode 220 here. Listen to the "It's the People" episode of Unload and Show Clear. Will writes in response to episode 220 Hey Lloyd,
    As an IDPA member I've subscribed to unload and show clear for a couple years and on the recent episode I was curious about your thoughts on the "political" aspects of the coronavirus pandemic (since ULaSC is politics free).
    I downloaded and listed to the most recent episode of the Armed Lutheran and was very disappointed in your take on it. Your politics section opened like the federal government's (and some states) underestimated the effect of the virus and that you seemed to condemn the lack of urgency.... and then it devolved into you advocating for not wearing masks because "the elites" will punish you, etc.
    You go on to talk about the "golden age of technology" but fail to consider our best health professionals are part of that "golden age". Their recommendations should be considered and taken seriously (politics aside).
    Your take that Heaven as a consolation to death isn't a valid rationalization to ignore sound medical advice. On that same logic you might as well avoid all vaccines and modern antibiotics because you go to church and have faith. On that same train on train of though you should avoid going for your annual checkup if you've had communion this month...since your going to Heaven what does it matter if you die?
    God gave us a brain for critical and rational thought and we should use it to the fullest potential ....which includes heading advice from the medical field.
    I'll be unsubscribing to Unload and Show Clear because of your lack of good judgment on the current pandemic. Stay safe, wear a mask, and listen to the medical professionals.
    -Will
    Prayer of the Week Almighty, everlasting God, cause us always to have a devout will toward You and to serve Your majesty with a pure heart; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

In the midst of fear brought about by the present epidemic, grant Your people comfort and assurance that You are in control of all things. Through this pestilence we pray that you would turn hearts toward You in repentance. We lift up to you all whose vocations place them in service to those who have been infected. Grant Your protection to our health care workers as they serve as Your hands of mercy to the afflicted. Be with all who are working tirelessly to develop a vaccine, that You would guide their work and grant them success in their efforts. Be with all who have contracted this virus, that You would comfort them in their hour of need. Safeguard us, our loved ones, and all who cry to You, that we may be defended from infection; and set our hearts at ease, that we may find in You an answer to all our fears. This we pray through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
