From medical work to a different path

We all face forks in the road, where we must choose a course of action—sometimes with life-changing results. Such was the case for me a number of years ago, when I first encountered Christian Science.

I went to medical school for about six years, and then began work as a therapist at a drug treatment center for terminally ill patients. One day, shortly before my graduation, while traveling to New York for special training, I stopped in Boston, where I spotted an impressive domed building with a huge reflecting pool. I didn’t know it then as The Mother Church, but out of curiosity I checked it out. The two women who greeted me in the church building made an indelible impression—I felt there was something unique about them. At that time I was not interested in their religion, but their kindness resonated with me. 

We'd love to hear from you!
