During his time as pastor of Belin Memorial United Methodist Church in Murrells Inlet, the Rev. Harold Lewis always tried to preach compelling sermons.
“Sermons that people would listen to,” says Lewis, who retired from the ministry 16 years ago.
These days, Lewis, 86, offers a lesson for life amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He and his wife, Edna, recently became two of thousands of people ages 70-plus to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Tidelands Health.
As of Feb. 23, the health system had administered more than 24,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, including more than 18,000 doses to people 70 and older at regional vaccination sites in Murrells Inlet and Georgetown.
Even though he’s retired, Lewis still periodically has a chance to share God’s word with others, so he didn’t hesitate to be vaccinated.
