When Rachel Troutman, a graduate student at Michigan State University, talks about sharing Christian Science, she’s inevitably transported back to her teen years when she was thinking about “the big questions.”
“Even though I was raised in Christian Science, I wanted to understand for myself, ‘What is truth?’ ” she told the Sentinel’s Jenny Sawyer in a recent conversation. “I was searching, so I understand what it feels like to search. And I want to be prepared to respond when I encounter someone else who’s searching.” Although every situation is different, Rachel says there’s a golden thread running through every encounter: glimpsing each individual’s innate and unbreakable relationship to God.
You’re really on fire with sharing Christian Science, but for some of us, reaching out to others in that way doesn’t feel so easy. Where’s a good place to begin?
