Prayer's response to gang warfare

Marta Greenwood, C.S.B.

From Georgia in the US to Glasgow in the UK, participants in this lively chat ask questions and offer thoughts about how to respond to gangs in their own or others’ communities. Marta provides spiritual thoughts and practical examples from her own experience of responding to young people who behaved in a threatening way. She bases her comments on three key points: that God is Father-Mother and God is All, that God is good, and that since man (meaning men and women) and the universe are the reflection of God, there is no evil.

For Marta, these aren’t abstract concepts. They are truths that heal, and that will lead young people to more productive behavior while also helping adults to see them in a more loving, spiritual light.
