interview with Christina Stevens

Filmmaker and ad writer Christina Stevens had a dream of meeting Mother Teresa, literally.  She eventually did meet the famous nun in Calcutta, India.  The resulting film is now re-told in a book, Love – The Saint and The Seeker (Hay House, 2014).  Stevens visited “First Take with Lando and Chavis” to talk about some of the things she learned.

Stevens, who traded in her high powered advertising career for more humanitarian pursuits, considers her experience more “transcendent than transformative.”  Mother Teresa suggested she volunteer in the orphanage.  

“The real experience was the work, the people that I touched, the sisters that I met, what I observed, what I felt in the orphanage.” 

“I call it a revolution,” Mother told Stevens.  ”A revolution of love.”

Music on this feature is by Dianne Reeves, “Christ Child’s Lullaby” from the CD Christmas Time is Here and Marcus Roberts, “O Come All Ye Faithful,” from the CD Prayer for Peace.
