In an op-ed for Religion News Service Susan Hayward, Azza Karam, and Katherine Marshall discuss the ways religion has been impacted by the current global pandemic. While religion is often portrayed as divisive, the authors reflect on its power of unification as a potential tool to combat the social strains caused by COVID-19 across the world. By citing examples in Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Israel and Palestine, and the Central African Republic, the authors showcase clear ways that multireligious solidarity might translate into solutions during this crisis.
