A talent we all possess

A friend who was planning to join a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, was given a membership application. The people she listed as references were mailed recommendation forms to complete. One form was sent to the Christian Science practitioner and teacher with whom the applicant had recently completed class instruction in Christian Science.

An item on the recommendation form asked the reference to list the “talents” possessed by the applicant that would be useful in supporting the activities of the branch church. The practitioner only listed one. She wrote, “[The applicant] has the talent of spiritual mindedness.”
