When Mary Baker Eddy ordained the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures to preach to Christian Science congregations, she reassuringly wrote to her Church, “Your dual and impersonal pastor, the Bible, and ‘Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,’ is with you; and the Life these give, the Truth they illustrate, the Love they demonstrate, is the great Shepherd that feedeth my flock, and leadeth them ‘beside the still waters’ ”.
Christian Science came to my family close to 90 years ago.
I find it amazing how God’s love is always present, always surrounding and protecting us.

One morning several years ago, I woke up barely able to open my eyes.
One afternoon a few years ago, my husband and I decided to go for a short bicycle ride around a pond.
One December, when I was serving as First Reader in my local branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I decided to incorporate Christmas-related hymns, Bible passages, and citations from Mary Baker Eddy’s Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures into the Wednesday testimony meetings throughout the month.
The law of Love operates without borders or walls. It operates in human consciousness and on the human scene.
