Talk to my friends about Christian Science? Me?

I didn’t expect a trip to Central America to lead to a discussion about religion and spirituality. But that’s what happened during my senior year of high school.

I was visiting Guatemala and staying with a host mother and several volunteers. Christian Science came up in one of our conversations, and these volunteers were asking me about it, as well as about spirituality in general.

One thing I’ve always tried to do when I get questions about Christian Science is to share ideas that I think the person asking the questions can relate to, or that he or she might find meaningful. For example, the idea that God is Love and only Love is something that’s pretty amazing when you think about what it really means. I shared that idea, and one of the volunteers, who considered herself spiritual but not religious, really seemed to connect with that. We also talked about healing through prayer, though one of the other volunteers was a little skeptical about that idea.
