Whether there's division in your household, at church, at work, or in government, there is a healing answer, and prayer will help you find it. For centuries, people have been turning to prayer and have found solutions and safety in times of war and times of peace, in times of lack and times of plenty. The Bible records many of these experiences, and the guests on this chat will be able to share other, more contemporary examples.

If you're looking for solutions to divisiveness in any part of your life—or the life of your country—join this chat with a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science and with a Christian Scientist who has founded an organization that is working for world peace.

About John Minard: After getting a degree in telecommunications, John founded a corporate communications company in Michigan. He later moved to Boston to work for The Christian Science Monitor's broadcasting initiatives, and in other Church technology positions, including many Internet-related activities.

John and his family live in Collingswood, New Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia, where John works as a Christian Science practitioner and teacher.

About Libby Hoffman: Libby has been active in peacebuilding for over 25 years. She is the founder and president of Catalyst for Peace, a private foundation that mobilizes locally owned and led peacebuilding and reconciliation and brings the stories of this work to the world. She co-founded Fambul Tok (Family Talk), which brings victims and perpetrators from the civil war in Sierra Leone together in tradition-based ceremonies of truth-telling and forgiveness. She produced the award-winning documentary film about this work, Fambul Tok, and is a lead author of the book of the same name – both released in 2011.

A former Political Science professor at Principia College, Libby has developed and led conflict resolution training programs in corporate, congregational, educational, and community settings. She lives in Maine, and is married with three children.
