From the January 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal

An occasional column, recording insights and experiences from members of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship as they travel the world, speaking on Christian Science and its healing mission.

THERE have been many branch churches and societies that have reached out to the Spanish-speaking community by sponsoring Spanish language lectures. This reminds me of what Mary Baker Eddy said regarding a new idea: "The new idea, conceived and born of Truth and Love, is clad in white garments. Its beginning will be meek, its growth sturdy, and its maturity undecaying" (Science and Health, p. 463). It's a great step in demonstrating the brotherhood of man despite world-imposed divisions related to nationality and language.

I had accepted an invitation to lecture in English and Spanish for a church in New England in the middle of January. An exciting prospect—because it was the first time the church had offered a lecture in Spanish, and the community in which the church is located has a significant percentage of Spanish speakers.
