Nate recently had the opportunity to read the Christian Science Bible Lesson at a jail. A young man became interested in the universal ideas about God that Nate was sharing. Soon after, they talked at length about how God made man in the image and likeness of Love. A few weeks later, Nate ran into this guy again. With glowing eyes, the young man testified to how he had been healed of lung cancer while praying with Christian Science concepts. Experiencing first-hand the healing power of Love is Nate’s favorite thing. It’s what makes him tick.
Nate studied perennial religion at Hampshire College where he was introduced to Christian Science healing. Although he was enamored with the academic exploration of spirituality, what he truly desired most was to practice spirituality in a tangible way — he wanted to experience God and heal others.
After traveling the world for a year and hiking extensively in the Himalayas, Nate came to Boston in 2008 to work for his church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist. Since then, he has served in many capacities, including launching and producing your Daily Lift and Time4Thinkers’ Weekly Musician podcasts. Nate also helped pioneer the online Sunday School at The Mother Church; helped launch a branch church in Jamaica Plain, MA; served as reader, soloist and Sunday School teacher in branch churches; worked as a counselor and wilderness trip leader for six years at Camp Owatonna; has shared the Good News at jails, rehab centers and interfaith-events. He’s also been widely involved in composing, producing and performing Christian music.
Nate's many hobbies includes adventuring in the outdoors, writing songs and cooking. But he says, “Without comparison, my greatest love, my greatest joy— my mission — is to transform lives and heal the sick through Christianly Scientific prayer.”
