THE ANNUAL ELECTION of officers of The Mother Church by the Christian Science Board of Directors, called for in the Church Manual, will take place this year on Monday, June 7, prior to the Annual Meeting of The Mother Church. We want to let you know in advance of our intent to elect new Readers, because such a significant change involves many practical transition issues and requires the services and support of a number of employees to complete details before the Readers begin Annual Meeting week. As preparations for the June transition in Readers begin in earnest, we want to ensure that information about this important activity be accurately communicated from the beginning. (See our brief notice in the March 22, 2010, issue of the Christian Science Sentinel.)
It is with delight that we announce our intent to elect Karl (Sandy) Sandberg, CSB, of Norwell, Massachusetts, and Marian English, CSB, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, as First and Second Readers of The Mother Church respectively for the June 2010 to June 2013 readership term.
Sandy's service to The Mother Church began in 1967 when he entered the Church's Chaplain Training Program. After serving as a Chaplain in the United States Army, he became listed as a practitioner in the Journal in 1981. He became a teacher of Christian Science in 1988. He has served the Church in many capacities, including service as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship; as Vice President, President, and Teacher of the Board of Education; and as guest Reader for services at The Mother Church.
