“Angry No More” is the topic of a lecture I have given several times this Spring throughout the UK and US, most recently in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. I offered insights for overcoming anger with forgiveness, bringing restoration and progress for those who have been trailed by a sad past or marked by abuse. I also talked about how I overcame post-traumatic symptoms and anger following childhood sexual abuse.
The first essential to moving beyond anger is the admission to yourself that you can do it. Admitting to oneself that what the Bible says is true and provable – that man is made in the likeness of Spirit, of divine Love, and is spiritual and good, sets one free to live that spirituality and goodness without limits. Then we learn that no human circumstance is unredeemable or unhealable.
Before the lecture, I spoke with two radio personalities, Justine Green and Annie Othen, on their respective BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio programs. Both were enormously interested in the subject and in my experiences because new cases of long ago sexual abuse by public figures has been making the news practically weekly in the UK for quite some time.
I am posting one of the two interviews here - a Sunday morning interview with Justine Green. In the interview I give an overview of my experiences and my motivation for forgiveness. The second interview occurred during the Thursday midday program. Due to the probing nature of Annie's questions which required more explicit answers than I usually give, I am not posting it on the blog. For most, more information is not necessary. Others however, may be helped by the "human interest" angle of the story and the fuller account. If you feel you would be helped by the second interview, you may contact me and request it to be sent to you directly.

I have practiced Christian Science professionally in
some form since 1979.
But my journey with
Christian Science started
in a Sunday school
where as a young child
I was taught the Scriptures and some simple basics
of Jesus' method of
scientific Christian healing.
A significant experience
at the age of twelve
opened my eyes to
the great potential
of this practice.
After impaling my foot
on a nail,
I prayed the way I had learned
in Sunday school.
