I’ve always appreciated opportunities to share Christian Science with the public. And while serving in my local Christian Science Reading Room—a combination bookstore/library where you can pray, read and study Christian Science publications, or borrow or purchase them—I like to be open to what I can pray about in order to support my community.
One day, I prayed with the idea that the Reading Room is a “bastion,” if you will—a stronghold in the community that holds firmly to the Christ, the spiritual idea of God.
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, states: “The Christ was the Spirit which Jesus implied in his own statements: ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life;’ ‘I and my Father are one.’ This Christ, or divinity of the man Jesus, was his divine nature, the godliness which animated him” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 26).
