Tongue-tied? Trust God!
Q: Sometimes I feel really awkward when I try to talk about Christian Science. How do I figure out the right words to explain it to my friends?
A: No worries! Actually, there’s no such thing as “the right words,” because every opportunity to talk to a friend will be totally unique. Each time, there will be a good idea for you to share—an idea just perfect for that person or that situation. And you don’t have to plan it out ahead of time because you can trust God to tell you in that moment what needs to be said. Maybe it’s just a simple thought, such as: Christian Science helps you understand that God is Love. But you can rely on God to help you know what you need to say, and to guide the conversation from there.
And more than words, what really speaks to people is your life. The way you live your life says so much about Christian Science. Where does your joy come from? Why do you rarely get sick? Just being who you are can be such an effective way of “speaking” about Christian Science. Sometimes, sharing a healing you’ve had can be helpful, too, because it shows what Christian Science does. It shows that Christian Science is practical and relevant.
