The following is adapted from “Record of Truth,” a Journal podcast. Sharing their insights are Janet Horton, a retired Army chaplain; Diane Marrapodi, a Christian Science practitioner and teacher, and currently also the Second Reader for The Mother Church in Boston; and Mark Sappenfield, who was the National News Editor for The Christian Science Monitor at the time of this interview, but has since been appointed as the Monitor’s new Editor.
It sometimes appears like there’s no end in sight to the violence happening around the world. What has come to each of you in your prayers about how we can stop the violence and find real solutions to the problems that cause it? Janet, do you want to go first?
