The Christian Science practice—open to everyone

From the September 1993 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When your life has been touched by the healing power of Christian Science, it's natural to want to share it with others. This interview with a Christian Science practitioner, Mary Ridgeway, shows just how naturally this desire can lead to public practice and how one's life and family can be blessed along the way.

Is full-time employment in the Christian Science practice a calling anyone can aspire to? It's a calling that's natural for everyone to aspire to because everyone is a child of God. We're all called to the practice of the truth of being. We become aware of this divine leading through the desire in our hearts to love God and mankind more fully.

I think there's great power in the yearning of the heart to love and help one's fellowman. I've not always been a Christian Scientist, but I always had a desire to help others. I was a musician studying music therapy in college. After graduating, I worked with people who had emotional disturbances. When I began to study Christian Science and to learn more about it, I had an even greater desire to help others. My heart was full of gratitude for Mrs. Eddy's glorious spiritual understanding of God's nature. When you get to know God through the study of Christian Science, how can you not want to help others know and demonstrate the source of all good?
