Sharing Christian Science with integrity

I have been thinking about dedication recently, and two incidents in my own experience came to mind.

I was invited to play golf at a members-only golf club with a doctor, a lawyer, and a prominent businessman. In the clubhouse after the game, I was asked, “What do you do?” Thinking these folks would not be interested in Christian Science and not wishing to embarrass myself or my host, instead of saying I was a Christian Science practitioner, I replied, “Oh … I do a bit of work with the homeless.” They asked some questions about this work, and then made laudatory and congratulatory comments, but somehow I felt diminished. While I hadn’t lied (I do do a bit of work with the homeless), I hadn’t shared the whole truth—the truth of what I do as a profession.
