DARIEN, Conn. -- John M. Tyler will explain how prayer-based action can help heal conflicts in lives as well as society at large in his talk, "Conflict Resolution: A Spiritual Approach" on Tuesday, April 5 at the Darien Library.
The free public talk is sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist of Darien. Tyler’s talk will include experiences of those who have resolved conflicts by utilizing the Bible-based system of healing explained in science and health with "Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, a book of universally applicable ideas on practical spirituality.
He will show how practicing forgiveness and learning to love has led to healing of marital strife, national conflicts and even physical bodies.
“We can all use our spiritual sense to break through the façade of seeing persons as bad or difficult and bear witness to the God-like qualities that constitute their real nature. This process of prayer enables us to see the spiritual truth, which heals,” Tyler said.
The talk will begin at 7:30 p.m. A question and answer period will follow Tyler’s prepared remarks.
Tyler, who resides in Pittsburgh, is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. A former labor union organizer and civil rights activist, he holds degrees from Princeton University and Institute d’Etude Politiques in Paris. Before entering the full-time healing ministry, he taught political science at Princeton and the University of Pittsburgh.
While teaching in Pittsburgh, he founded an integrated residence for students to deal with racial divisions. For his involvement in this project he received the YWCA’s Racial Justice Award. He has given talks in five languages on six continents. He travels internationally speaking about the power of prayer to bring peace, health, and healing in people’s lives.
