From the December 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal

1. This month, Christian Science practitioner John Rinnert of Montana, answers a reader's question about the "day of judgment" for our Q&A column. A student of the Bible and the key to the Scriptures—Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy—Rinnert says when he first went into the healing practice, almost five years ago, his biggest lesson was letting go of personal responsibility for his patients' well-being. "It was good to discover that God does the healing!" Page 9.

2. As a teenager, Gisela Manger was instantly healed of pleurisy through Christian Science treatment. "I felt great joy and freedom as never before," she says. "I started reading Science and Health, which at once made sense to me. I applied the ideas to my daily affairs and it worked!" Now as a practitioner with some 30 years of practice she continues to put those healing ideas to work every day. Read her answer in FAQ on the Healing Practice. Page 18.

3. Though most of the time Pat Hyatt says she's "a regular Christian Science practitioner working at a regular desk" at her South Carolina home, she spends several months a year maintaining her healing practice from a fully equipped office on a boat, cruising the intercoastal waterways with her husband, Chuck. "I do some of my most inspired prayerful work on the water," she says. And that's where she wrote "A Look at 'The Seven Deadly Sins, Part II." Page 52.
