In June of this year, Annu Matthai presided over the Annual Meeting of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, welcoming church members across the globe with characteristic warmth and grace. And one couldn’t help but notice she was wearing a traditional sari from her native India.
Before Annu returned to Bangalore, where she resides and teaches Christian Science, the Journal had the privilege of speaking with the new President of The Mother Church. The interview resulted in a wide-ranging discussion focusing on Annu’s introduction to Christian Science, as well as subjects that she has prayed deeply about and are close to her heart.
Annu, let me first say, you are truly a citizen of the world!
