I want to take that class!

I’ve been reading a new book called Paths of Pioneer Christian Scientists by Christopher L. Tyner (Longyear Museum Press). Based on extensive research from the archives of The Mary Baker Eddy Library and Longyear Museum, Tyner’s book focuses on four pioneer women in the early days of Christian Science, all students of Mary Baker Eddy’s, who went on to be practitioners and teachers themselves after taking a pretty life-changing class on metaphysical healing. They each left behind an amazing healing legacy, as well as laying the groundwork for thriving Christian Science communities and churches in their fields. 

Just a few weeks after taking Primary class with Mrs. Eddy, Emma Thompson returned home to a flourishing practice. She wrote to her teacher: “Your teachings bring all of these truths so clear to me that I cannot see how any one by strictly following you can any way fail of success. Before I had eaten my breakfast—the patients . . . began to come . . .” (p. 8).
