Bishop Wright spoke with Rose Scott, host of WABE’s Closer Look, on navigating the pandemic, and how faith and science we used to determine when to allow church members back for in-person services.

“Faith and science are siblings, Dr. (Martin Luther) King said,” said Wright, who has led the diocese since 2012. “So we wanted to stand at the intersection of faith and of science and make the best decisions that we could. It’s not just about worshipping; it’s also about how we take care of neighbors, how we take care of one another. I’m so glad that we are here now.”
