Our biweekly series on how people have nurtured their public practice of Christian Science healing.
AN IRRESISTIBLE GOAL
"TODD, WHY AREN'T YOU in the public practice?"
The question caught me completely by surprise.
It was put to me by a friend three years ago. I was telling her about my experiences sharing Christian Science with my business colleagues, as part of living my life more publicly as a Christian Scientist. To me that meant being more willing to offer a spiritual perspective in conversations where friends and colleagues were ruminating over personal challenges relating to health, finances, relationships, and so on. In a gentle and noncoercive way I would simply ask them if they'd like to hear how I might handle a similar situation as a Christian Scientist. More often than not they welcomed the discussion, and it would open the door to a deeper conversation about the type of spiritual healing that I'd been practicing all my life. I was finding that while people are not necessarily comfortable talking about religion per se, there is broad public interest in spirituality—a genuine desire to feel more connected to a spiritual force in their lives.
