College summit

The College Summit is an event for all university students, faculty, instructors, and recent graduates. High school students may also attend. It is an opportunity to make new friends, get inspired, and explore ways to support the Cause of Christian Science and get involved in this global movement. This year we’re coming together to explore how Truth — as explained in Christian Science — is transforming the world today.

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)

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.

Cross and Crown trademark licensing program

The Christian Science Board of Directors is happy to accept applications to license use of the Cross and Crown trademark from branch churches and societies of The Mother Church, Christian Science teachers and lecturers, Christian Science college and university organizations, and Committees on Publication. The Cross and Crown is a registered trademark of the Christian Science Board of Directors and has long been used on Mary Baker Eddy’s writings and the Christian Science periodicals to indicate The Mother Church as the authentic source of these products. As the Cross and Crown trademark is expanded and more widely used through licensing, we expect the public will become increasingly aware of it as a visual identifier of genuine Christian Science services offered in local communities by The Mother Church and its branches and other associated activities.
