Jesus' command "Cleanse the lepers" remains as relevant today as yesterday, says Christian Science practitioner and teacher Keith Wommack. He shares his special insight into the essence of this command in the following conversation, which sheds light on why ...


From the March 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal

During the ten years that Keith Wommack played in his rock band, The Wommack Brothers Band, he never traveled without the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. His band shared the stage with marquee performers such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elvis Costello, and Journey. He loved music—still does! But Keith slowly exchanged hours of guitar practice and working on songs for hours of reading, studying, and pondering spiritual ideas. He began to heal others through what he was learning. When he left the band in 1982, he went immediately into the healing ministry of Christian Science. "I found that songs could soothe and uplift for a time," Keith says, "but only spiritual understanding could truly heal."

Keith married ten years later and became an instant stepdad to his wife's two sons, Jarrod and Jordan. Little League baseball coach, assistant scoutmaster, and chess coach, for 15 years Keith participated fully in his sons' lives until they headed off to their current universities. Keith has now been a Christian Science practitioner for 25 years, a Christian Science teacher for 14, and a Christian Science lecturer for seven years. He and his wife, Joanne, live in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Keith and I conducted our conversation via e-mail.
