Kari Mashos CSB

At an early age I loved reading the Bible for its inspiring accounts of healing. I found it comforting, strengthening and thought-provoking. I felt those Biblical healing experiences of relying on divine help were showing all of us that God is knowable as the always present good.

Monica B Esefer Passaglia CSB

I was so blessed with the opportunity of receiving spiritual education in Christian Science at home and attending a Christian Science Sunday School. I always loved the Bible's message and Mary Baker Eddy's teachings in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Barbara R Pettis CSB

From an early time in my life, I clearly recall the many occasions when family members expressed gratitude for the many blessings that Christian Science had brought to our lives.  Whether it was hearing about the very inspiring discovery of Christian Science by great grandparents or grandparents or the healings that these discoveries brought about, I knew that Christian Science was the Comforter that Christ Jesus had brought to mankind. In my own family, I’ve witnessed healings of broken bones, cancer, childhood illnesses, heart attacks, migraines, and other serious physical difficulties.  My growing up years were happy—not because we never had any challenges—but because we always knew that God had a solution for any problem that we might face in our daily lives.

The Mother Church’s International Service Department is looking for a globally-conscious individual who loves expressing the qualities of a Christian Science nurse, as Mary Baker Eddy describes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “The nurse should be cheerful, orderly, punctual, patient, full of faith, — receptive to Truth and Love.” (p.395:18) We’re looking for an intern who is passionate about the same thing we are: bringing healing to the world.
