Preaching in Times of Pestilence – 1918 and 2020
Keywords:sermon manuscripts, Spanish flu, Church of Sweden, Covid-19-pandemic
With the help of sermon manuscripts from the time of the Spanish flu, held within the Church of Sweden, new light is shed on sermons held in the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. The comparison shows, among other things, that a shift has been made in how God is portrayed. It also points to some challenging questions about suffering, hope and the role of eternity in preaching today.
