A series of reports, comments, and reflections on the Restoration and Renewal Program at The Mother Church

Attracting thinkers

From the May 1999 issue of The Christian Science Journal

People Have Often asked how we are finding the best resources to provide the expertise needed in the restoration and renewal work. The keynote in finding the individuals who are managing and carrying out this work is their quality of thought. And it has been inspiring to see how divine Mind has been providing for the need. Supply and demand have been in harmonious balance.

The Restoration and Renewal Program is being blessed by wonderful service from both longtime and newer employees as well as outside contractors. Each one has responded to the quality of thinking already present, and in turn is contributing something fresh to the work of advancing new ideas and their implementation.

One member of the Restoration and Renewal team, Bridgette Beinecke, was initially attracted to the project because it offered an opportunity to use all of her skills on a historic building. She is an experienced architect and project manager, and studied engineering. But what persuaded her to leave her previous position and to take on a much longer daily commute, was the very special quality of thinking she felt during her interviews. "I instantly felt appreciated for what I had to contribute as a thinking individual. It was uplifting to feel valued and to know that my thought counted," Bridgette recalled.
