As Manager of Christian Science Practitioner Activities for The Mother Church, Connie Coddington is in touch with practitioners worldwide and hears about their daily challenges, needs, and victories. Recently the Journal reached out to get Connie’s candid views on the healing practice. Are the challenges facing practitioners today different from those in past decades? If so, what are they? And what insights might help us in praying to support this vital ministry?
Connie is a Christian Science practitioner and teacher currently living in Boston.
Connie, from your work in Practitioner Activities these past several years, can you share things you’ve learned about what impels people to enter the full-time practice of Christian Science?
