For some 40 years Maryl Walters has been a practitioner of Christian Science healing, joyfully helping people find solutions to their own and world problems through the practical Christianity found in Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. In 1994 she became a teacher of Christian Science and was also appointed to the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Since then, she has presented talks and workshops on Christian Science across North America to a variety of groups in many different venues. She also writes for the Christian Science Sentinel and the Christian Science Monitor and has been interviewed on Sentinel Radio.

Maryl graduated from Eden Theological Seminary in 2012 with a Master’s degree in Theological Studies. She is active on the ecumenical team of The Mother Church under the auspices of the Committee on Publication. She contributes frequently to the Circle of Faith blog on christianscience.com.

Maryl is involved with local St. Louis interfaith activities and dialogue groups and is a member of the Cabinet of the St. Louis Interfaith Partnership. She is currently serving on the Interreligious Relations Convening Table of the National Council of Churches which involves meeting and connecting with other Christians as well as being involved in Christian/Muslim, Christian/Jewish, Christian/Buddhist, and Christian/Hindu dialogues at the national level.

Maryl has given many classroom talks on Christian Science in Comparative Religion and Introduction to Religion classes in colleges and universities, as well as presenting Christian Science on ecumenical and interfaith panels. One of the professors wrote: “Your presentation [to my social workers class] was inspiring and informative. Know that your time with us has dramatic implications upon many lives. These social workers will be interacting with hundreds of families in the future and your words and testimony will stay with them …” (Dr. Gary Behrman, associate dean of the graduate school at St. Louis University.) Another wrote: “I would like to thank you for your wonderful presentations in my “Religions and the Margin” classes. Students were incredibly curious and enthusiastic about your lectures, and they have generated a great deal of discussion in my courses.” (Dr. Andrew Fiala, Professor/Chair, Department of Philosophy, California State University, Fresno.)

If you’re interested in finding a classroom venue for a lecture, Maryl is happy to share ideas with you, including templates of letters that could be sent to professors.
