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.


From the September 2010 issue of The Christian Science Journal

STANDING and waiting plays a role in the life of a lecturer. Security lines, boarding and deplaning, passenger pickup areas, hotel check-ins, and, of course, greeting and welcoming those who are attending the lecture are all opportunities to express patient understanding, deep joy, love, and gratitude.

The life of a lecturer is wonderfully filled with anticipation of favorable situations to bring Christly comfort and healing. This requires remaining mentally alert to God's plan, even as one passes through commonplace, everyday moments—to remain spiritually on one's feet, so to speak, in a readied state.

It can be something as simple as sending a thank-you to a lecture committee chairperson, taking an extra moment to voice caring concern in a greeting line, or addressing a human need that is hungering and thirsting for a spiritual solution.
