Ministering to humanity

From the May 1998 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At the back of this magazine there is a directory of names of individuals engaged in the public healing ministry of Christian Science. We thought it might be helpful to Journal readers, and especially to those who are considering fuller engagement in Christian Science healing, to hear some of these practitioners share a few thoughts about how they got started in the full-time practice. Obviously, their experiences are individual; there couldn't be a specific formula for entering a holy ministry! Our hope is that this series may encourage others to see how the way to a public practice of Christian healing opens up when there is a pure desire to serve God and one's fellowman.

One who chooses to follow the Master, Christ Jesus, in devoting his or her life to spiritual healing learns to view this work as a ministry. Ministering through prayer to suffering humanity is both rewarding and inspiring—rewarding in that the one who does so widens the scope of his knowledge and practice of effective, faithful prayer, thus benefiting others as well as increasing his own spiritual growth; and inspiring in that one is privileged to bear witness to the power of God, Truth, and to what God does for man. What joy this brings!
