Nourishing my practice

I had been raised in Christian Science, but when I was in college, I heard several talks by a Christian Science lecturer that impelled me to dig more deeply into my study and practice of it. I was particularly struck by the idea of having a joyous approach to practicing Christian Science. I was also drawn to the fact that Christian Science is Bible-based, and I delighted in the logic of my identity’s being perfect because of my inseparable relationship to God, good.

I desired to learn more and began to consider Christian Science Primary class instruction as I continued studying the Bible, Mary Baker Eddy’s writings, and articles in the Christian Science periodicals. Through this study, I saw more clearly that the starting point for demonstrating the Science of Christ is the understanding of God—as expressed by the divine synonyms Principle, Love, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, and Truth—and of man as the reflection of this Supreme Being. This understanding inspired and motivated me to become a better metaphysician, and I applied and was accepted into a Primary class.

Nothing could hold me back
