THE SCIENCE AND ART OF CHRISTIAN HEALING

A CONVERSATION WITH VIRGINIA HARRIS

From the March 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In January 1977, VIRGINIA HARRIS was in a serious car accident. The ER doctors didn't think she'd survive the injuries. But through Christian Science treatment alone, she was completely healed.

Everyone has turning points in their lives, and for Virginia Harris her complete recovery from that car accident not only restored her body, it redirected her purpose. From then on, the full-time practice of Christian Science became the focus of her life's work. In 1979, she began advertising her healing practice in the Journal, and in 1982 she became a Christian Science teacher. Ms. Harris has since served The Mother Church in many capacities, including member of the Board of Lectureship, Superintendent of The Mother Church Sunday School, Clerk of The Mother Church, founding Trustee of The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity, and member of the Christian Science Board of Directors. The mother of three sons, she lives with her husband, Reed, in Weston, Massachusetts.

I began our conversation by asking Virginia how she became a Christian Scientist.
