Melanie Wahlberg, CS

Two influences on me that I’ll never forget were the Christian Science Sunday School and a mom who turned to prayer and encouraged me to do the same.  These influences showed me something of the reliability of God and spiritual inspiration, and trusting this helped me find my way growing up.  Significant healing experiences with relationship and food issues, and violence in the community, were also unforgettable.  From this, I got an idea of the many ways that Christian Science can transform lives.After finishing a doctorate in mathematics, I became a college professor and truly enjoyed teaching.  I found that teaching was less about telling students something than facilitating the students’ discoveries of new concepts.

The Lord’s Prayer: Our daily bread

"Give us this day our daily bread" is the first line of the Lord's Prayer that focuses on our needs. Bible scholar Barry Huff discusses how this line of Jesus' prayer is about more than bread—it's about God's abundance and caring for our neighbors. (Recommended for Sunday School teachers and Sunday School students ages 11-17)
