Russell Moore to discuss COVID-19, religious liberty and federal stimulus with Baptist Press in Facebook Live interview

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 14, 2020—Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, is scheduled to participate in a Facebook Live interview April 15 with Baptist Press, the daily news service of the SBC, to discuss the most pressing issues for America’s faith communities.

Dr. Moore will be interviewed by Jonathan Howe, vice president for communications for the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee, tomorrow from 1:00-1:30 p.m. CDT to help Southern Baptist leaders and pastors navigate issues related to COVID-19, religious liberty, and the federal stimulus. 

Questions include: 

  • How should faith leaders think about religious liberty in the context of the coronavirus?
  • Will participation in the SBA loan program lead to a violation of religious liberty? 
  • Are drive-in churches the new front for religious liberty? How should pastors think about this?
  • Based on your conversations with political leaders, how should churches prepare for ministry in the next few months?

Members of the national media are invited to watch the interview at this link and the video will also be made available on the Baptist Press Facebook page following the interview.
