Thirty-one years ago, Marjorie Scherer pulled up roots in Idaho and replanted her family in Africa. She has been living there ever since. Africa is home, says Ms. Scherer, a Christian Science teacher, practitioner, and lecturer who now lives in Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa. For her, home indeed fits the description that Mary Baker Eddy gave in Science and Health: "Home is the dearest spot on earth, and it should be the centre, though not the boundary, of the affections." Science and Health, p. 58. And from Scherer's expansive, spiritual concept of home springs her desire, commitment, and ability to help people experience the healing and revitalizing power of divine Love.
