Our occasional series on how people have nurtured their public practice of Christian Science healing.
Everyone’s road to the Christian Science practice is different.
I once envisioned working in an art museum or art gallery as a career, or maybe following a childhood dream of becoming the director at a summer camp. But God had different plans. After I went through Christian Science Primary class instruction, I knew that the public practice would likely happen sooner in my experience than I’d anticipated. It was something that was always in my heart, but I never imagined it would come about so soon.
The summer after class instruction, I began to understand more about what the practice entailed. I was the assistant director at a Christian Science summer camp and worked closely with the camp’s practitioner and director. I witnessed many quick healings of campers and counselors and saw the example of the practitioner in how she “imbibe[d] the spirit” (Science and Health, p. 495) of Christian Science. She was graceful, humble, loving, and joyous. I often asked her questions and learned by her example.
