How does one convince anti-vaxxers and the hesitant to get the vaccine?

First of all, one should probe the anti-vaxxers and the hesitant about their worldview. How do they view the world? What gives them meaning and purpose?

The vaccinated, hesitant, anti-vaxxers, and faith.

It is not true that the vaccinated have no faith in God. It is also not true that the hesitant and anti-vaxxers don’t have faith in science. In reality, the vaccinated, the hesitant, and the anti-vaxxers are all “walking by faith.” Yes, they are. We are taught faith is stepping into the unknown, and usually, … Continue reading The vaccinated, hesitant, anti-vaxxers, and faith.

On Christian women and the pursuit of purpose and destiny.

We do it for the sake of others

Those saying COVID-19 only affects the elderly, and those with underlying health issues are callous and inhumane, to say the least.  Those dead from the COVID-19 were grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, children, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Each of these was connected to others in multitudinous ways, therefore, their deaths affected them. If my … Continue reading We do it for the sake of others
