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.
