Prepare to share

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.
