Moved with joy

When I received a letter of election to membership in The Mother Church from the Christian Science Board of Directors in April 2011, I felt deeply moved by the joy of this news. I had been cherishing the thought of membership since I fell in love with Christian Science in August 2008. 

I have been faithful to this prospective “marriage,” in the form of membership in The Mother Church, doing what a responsible spouse does for his/her partner. My faithfulness, commitment, and spirituality were recognized by my branch church in Lusaka, Zambia, when they elected me Second Reader. 

Prior to my election, I had decided to apply for Mother Church membership, but there was no Christian Science teacher in Lusaka to countersign my application. Then, to my joy, the teacher to whom I’d applied for Christian Science Primary class instruction came to our church for a Christian Science lecture. It was the first time she had come to Zambia and what a great joy it was for both of us!
