In high school I struggled with a painful disease that examining physicians said had no cure. Through Christian Science I was healed within two weeks.

Katie Sue Brown CSB

My love for the teachings of Christian Science started at a young age, with Christian Science grandparents and parents who showed me that expressing good, or God, was my purpose. They also taught me to pray to God for healing.

Margaret Rogers CSB

Christian Science and community service were strong influences in my home growing up.  I found fulfilling ways to help disadvantaged people over the years, but in college I became convinced that the best way to accomplish lasting justice and peace was Jesus’ path of breaking through the illusion of evil and many minds to the perfection of God’s spiritual universe.  I wanted to devote myself to Christian Science practice, but wasn’t sure how to launch.  My next step was to become a Christian Science nurse.  Through nursing I learned healing involved love and commitment to spiritual growth.  It was challenging and satisfying work.  I also grew through active involvement in church, and in 1981 became a full-time Christian Science practitioner, then a public lecturer and writer for church periodicals.  I so appreciate Church as a structure for spiritual development. My Christian Science teacher encouraged me to be willing to teach others if I were needed in that role.  When I took this step in 1991, I found teaching class was a lot like teaching Sunday School.  I love discovering with students how to read Science and Health and the Bible with always deeper spiritual insight, to make their truths practical in healing, and depend on them as guides.  It’s also wonderful to continue growing with students through individual contact and yearly Association meetings.  Christian Science healing and teaching is the most joyful work I can imagine.  Class is a great step in taking your place as a healer.

Come to this fountain— Jay and Tessa Frost

Jay and Tessa explain the inspiration behind this new setting of a beloved hymn By Mary Baker Eddy.

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.
