Clergymen, occupying the watchtowers of the world, should uplift the standard of Truth. They should so raise their hearers spiritually, that their listeners will love to grapple with a new, right idea and broaden their concepts.

With Margaret Rogers,  September 26 - October 2

This week's guest, Margaret Rogers, wanted to help a young family in dire circumstances, but when giving them food or money wasn't an option, she found another solution. Please join us to hear what happened.

Monitor Breakfast with Education Secretary, Miguel Cardona, September 7, 2022 (a one-hour event).


From the Monitor's Finding Resilience series:

When Veronica Quiroga and her fellow students at Fordham University set out to interview Bronx residents about surviving the pandemic, they expected tales of woe. Instead, they found people kept using one particular quality to describe their experiences: resilience. Despite one of the city’s darkest eras in recent memory, the light of community, family, and perseverance shone through in the voices of the Bronx COVID-19 Oral History Project.
