Normal Class 2003

From the August 2003 issue of The Christian Science Journal

An invitation to faithful healers in the daily practice of Christian Science! Your ministry of healing is valued and needed today, in loving response to humanity's immense yearning for spiritual answers and for more certain healing.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, explained to seekers that she witnessed many incidents—as we have today—"which show that Christian Science meets a yearning of the human race for spirituality" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 111). And more and more people are asking, as they did of Mrs. Eddy, how does healing occur in Christian Science? How can I heal? The privilege and opportunity to heal and be healed have never been greater.

Mrs. Eddy established a scientific system of healing, as well as a system of spiritual education to teach this healing method. The Manual of The Mother Church provides that Normal classes, to prepare teachers of Christian Science, be taught every third year, beginning in 1907. The next Normal class will be held in December 2003. Article XXIX, Section 2 states, "Loyal Christian Scientists' pupils who so desire may apply to the Board of Education for instruction; and if they have practised Christian Science healing successfully three years and will furnish evidence of their eligibility therefor, they are eligible to enter the Normal class. All members of this class must be thorough English scholars."
