Me, a Reading Room Librarian? I didn’t think I was the one for the job. When my local Church of Christ, Scientist, moved our Reading Room downtown, we had a librarian who just loved the Reading Room and often spoke of her conversations with visitors.

It’s a great privilege, when appropriate, to share Christian Science with others—such as welcoming our neighbors’ children to our Sunday Schools, inviting newcomers to Christian Science lectures or church services, or sharing Christian Science literature. Many years ago, when I was a high school student in South Korea and just a beginner in the study of Christian Science, I mistakenly thought that I could not help others unless I had been through Primary class instruction in Christian Science and had decades of studying the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings under my belt.
Members of my Christian Science Society in Chandigarh, India, were praying for our community in response to news of people under the attack of chikungunya and dengue fever. In addition, we wanted to share with our community the way to health through Christian Science.
