A spiritual defense against bullying

Lois Carlson, a teacher and practitioner of Christian Science in Chicago, Illinois, was the guest on this Sentinel chat called, “A spiritual defense against bullying.” Lois has been in the full-time healing ministry of Christian Science since 1975, and has been a Christian Science teacher since 1991.

From Taiwan: Kids are calling me something I really don’t like, and sometimes I’m frozen with anger and left feeling deeply humiliated. How do I pray about this? 

Lois: You’ve helped us to identify what bullying is—it’s when somebody does or says something to you that makes you feel like you can’t be yourself, and being afraid almost makes you feel like you’re paralyzed. The great thing I can assure you of is that right in the middle of the fire is a voice inside you, telling you that you are loved and you are safe, and that you are worth being known.
