I’d love to meet you and cherish your spiritual search! I’m Suzanne Riedel, C.S.B., currently on assignment at The Mother Church, coming from Denver where I hold Primary classes. I am guessing we may have some experiences in common.
I was married, had five children, taught high school and middle school English, history, math and gifted education 20 years, was a state education workshop leader, and enjoyed the rigor of graduate school. I love my piano and music – including being a past church organist, soloist and Mother Church chimer. I enthusiastically followed my children’s high school and college sports, and now my grandchildren’s, watching them learn to challenge themselves to express freedom, dominion and working in unity. Painting and watching my favorite NBA team are delightful to me although I rarely have time for them! I’ve lived from ranch country to metropolis; I learned much from working in the Committee on Publication seven years and serving as a Christian Science lecturer nine years.
I found Christian Science as a 20-year-old after looking most of my life for spiritual answers and Truth. My first healing experience was life-saving and life-changing. Other healings followed as I increasingly learned of the good that God knew and caused. Knowing the closeness to God, Spirit, Love, we all actually have, and praying to establish it in consciousness so it is palpable --- this, to me, is the pearl of great price that Christian Science teaches humanity. I love to see others discover their real spiritual potential.
