Prayer amid Pandemic: "All Shall Be Well," She Wrote. But There's More to the Story.


"All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.” That these 17 words were uttered by a woman named Julian of Norwich may be the only thing you know about this 14th-century English saint. Historians don’t necessarily know that much more. We’re not even sure her real name. So why do we remember her?In this episode of Prayer amid Pandemic, Amy Laura Hall, the author of Laughing at the Devil: Seeing the World with Julian of Norwich and a Christian ethics professor at Duke Divinity School, tell us why we know so little about Julian’s identity but why we still read her writings on the vision she received while sick today.Gideon Para-Mallam, the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students regional secretary for English and Portuguese-speaking Africa, offers this week’s prayer.Read Christianity Today’s latest coronavirus coverageWhat is Prayer amid Pandemic? Read moreRate Prayer amid Pandemic on Apple PodcastsFollow the podcast on TwitterFollow the host on Twitter: Morgan LeeMusic by Urban Nerd Beats, Prod.
