The Church Law episode with the highest listenership to date is “Legal Issues for Churches in Pandemic Times” with guest Dr. Panagis Galiatsatos.

Six months after that recording, issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic remain high on the list of concerns among church leaders. The time was right to bring back Dr. Galiatsatos, a pulmonary and critical care medicine physician and assistant professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

In this episode, he and Erika discuss how the church can take a leadership role in spreading information about vaccines and other pandemic precautions and protocols. Plus, Erika shares insights on the recent US Supreme Court decision regarding the legality of federally mandated vaccinations.
