Interviewed by Christiane Amanpour, Karen talks about the impact social distancing is having on religious communities around the world, and discusses methods for coping, both physical and spiritual.

“We don’t have to go to Church to be in touch with the Sacred or the Divine,” she begins, and goes on to tell the story of the Israelites’ confinement indoors on the night of the very first Passover – when the Angel of Death passed overhead – before moving on to discuss the upcoming Christian festival of Palm Sunday.
