Can your organization survive the Pandemic?  In the aftermath, what is the process of recovery going to look like? How does the Christian worldview provide leaders with a moral basis for difficult decisions as well as guide how we behave as crisis managers and as leaders?  How do we persevere in the face of personal financial stress and perhaps massive losses? How do we get through this period successfully without compromising our values?
