The substance of Christian Science nursing

The substance of Christian Science nursing is love. Love for God and man weaves its way like a golden thread through this spiritual calling. 

As a Christian Science practitioner, I have been closely connected with Christian Science nursing for many years through serving on the board of a Christian Science nursing facility and visiting nurse service in the UK. Having observed this tender care firsthand, I see it very much as a spiritual calling—a ministry. 

It might seem as if Christian Science nursing could be solely perceived as “care,” just because its practice is free from the use of drugs and medication. This limited sense would rob it of its very energy and vitality. We can all care for each other, but very few meet the standard of fearless love that undergirds the practice of the Christian Science nurse.
