Patricia Cohan Woodard, CS

I discovered Christian Science as an adolescent and soon thereafter experienced the complete healing of a broken arm through Christian Science treatment, to the amazement of my mother, a Registered Nurse.After college and a move to New York City, I realized that I really wanted to teach and went on to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching at Manhattanville College. Later, as a young mother, I took courses to become a teacher naturalist at an Audubon Center.After numerous moves, and while a mother of two children, I began working as a Christian Science Practitioner and have pursued a lifelong career of learning about God, sharing Truth, and witnessing God’s love for mankind.I love the “ah ha” moments that come to us, sometimes when we least expect it.

Find common ground

There is no “us” and “them.” Our peers are no different from us, and we can be confident in sharing our good with all of our friends, because our actions are rooted in love for and unity with all man, not a sense of superiority. Three great responses: The best role model we have for how to explain Christian Science is Christ Jesus: he spoke in parables, not rocket science.

Be a dragon slayer

By Jenny Sawyer From the March 28, 2016 issue of   The Christian Science Sentinel When I was little, I didn’t like climbing into my bed if my room was already dark. I had to take a flying leap to make sure that any monsters underneath didn’t grab my ankles.

Let's be good porters!

By Kathryn Knox From the June 8, 2015 issue of   The Christian Science Sentinel Do you know what a castle looks like? Some castles were built with moats of water and drawbridges. Many others had a big locked-and-barred door.  If you were a person who didn’t belong in the castle, would the person guarding the door just let you come in? I don’t think so! If you wanted to get in, and were planning to do something bad, you might try to lie to trick the person at the door to let you inside.
