Like people of many faiths, Christian Scientists take the Golden Rule as basic ethics. It guides our relations with society, and while we can’t claim to have been always perfect in this regard, we feel strongly about respecting the rights of our neighbors and fellow citizens, and not imposing our own religious choices on others. Love for family, neighbor, community and the world is at the core of our values just as in most other churches.
In areas where there isn’t a branch church or society, Christian Science Informal Groups provide a way for students of Christian Science to come together for public worship and mutual support.
The Mother Church has funds dedicated to supporting branch churches and Christian Science societies in emergency situations, primarily when impacted by natural disasters.

Tessa and Jay Frost have been writing and performing together since 2008 and deeply appreciate the spiritual growth that they've experienced in music. In 2012 they were thrilled to release Soulshine, their first inspirational music album, and shortly after published its sheet music in an effort to contribute new contemporary solos to the religious community.
Now living in Washington, DC, the Frosts continue to write solos and play at Christian Science church services while performing jazz, folk, and pop music.
Concern for public health and safety is something that all responsible people share—including Christian Scientists.

I am a third-generation, lifelong Christian Scientist. My paternal grandmother was a devoted practitioner. Her healing example, dedication, and love of Christian Science made a deep and lasting impression on me. As a young adult my career goal was to practice law. After finishing law school and working for several years as a lawyer, I discovered that the satisfaction I had hoped to find in helping others through legal challenges wasn’t there. Feeling unfulfilled and yearning to find a better way of serving others, I began looking and praying in earnest for a more meaningful outlet to love. This yearning led me first to many community volunteer jobs, including serving as a CASA (court-appointed special advocate for children in foster care) and performing in theatre productions geared to young children. Still looking for deeper fulfillment, I discovered the blessings of serving my branch church. As my love for Christian Science grew and expanded, the healing work was a natural evolution and unfoldment in thought and activity. I have served The Mother Church as a member of the Board of Lectureship and also as the state Committee on Publication for Kansas. I enjoy contributing to the periodicals. I was a member of the Normal Class of 2006.
