The Book of Job: Part 2—Structure

The Book of Job opens and closes in pretty accessible language with more complicated prose in the middle. But when you realize that reading Job is like watching a man fall into a pit, and then try to climb out of that pit, it's easier to understand the book as a whole. (Recommended for ages 11-14)

Earlier this week a church member serving at the Christian Science Reading Room in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada, was assaulted in an apparently random act of violence. She passed away the following day.

Brenda I McKinstry CSB

I grew up in a very loving home, with three brothers and two sisters. My mom lived Christian Science! She was widowed when all six of us were very young, and never worked outside the home.

Lyn Smith CSB

I have lived most of my life in and around Fremantle, Australia.  I trained as a hairdresser and operated a hairdressing business. Christian Science came into my life shortly after a personal challenge.  A dear friend passed on at a relatively young age.  Shortly after, I bought a second-hand copy of Science and Health - the word “Health” caught my attention.

Giulia Nesi Tetreau CSB

I always knew my career path was going to involve being of service to others, but had no idea it would be as a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science! My work in rural Appalachia during high school touched me so deeply I went on to get both an undergraduate and graduate degree in social work. I then worked for over 10 years as a psychotherapist in a variety of mental health settings.
