Coming to a Spiritual Position of Attention

Presented by First Church of Christ Scientist at Vanderbilt University - First Amendment Center (John Seigenthaler Center), Nashville TN

Mar 26
Coming to a Spiritual Position of Attention

Janet Horton will speak about her experience as a women chaplain in the military and share her recent book, Cracking the Camouflage Ceiling: Faith Persistence and Progress in the Army Chaplaincy During the Early Integration of Women in the Military.

Men in the armed forces were not easily accepting women in the days of change in the 1970s. Officers and men sometimes mocked, demeaned, and threatened Horton in her work as chaplain. Her story is how deep faith in the promises of the Gospel, patience, unselfish service, and a capable performance helped her to change minds and hearts of many in the military. As a pioneer for women she ran the race and jumped the hurdles. Her story is inspiring.

Janet Horton was present at the Pentagon on 9/11 and was part of a chaplains’ team which prayed with victims and aided families, thus honoring soldiers in an unforgettable way.
