“A Christian Scientist requires my work SCIENCE AND HEALTH for his textbook, and so do all his students and patients. Why? First: Because it is the voice of Truth to this age, and contains the full statement of Christian Science, or the Science of healing through Mind. Second: Because it was the first book known, containing a thorough statement of Christian Science. Hence it gave the first rules for demonstrating this Science, and registered the revealed Truth uncontaminated by human hypotheses. Other works, which have borrowed from this book without giving it credit, have adulterated the Science. Third: Because this book has done more for teacher and student, for healer and patient, than has been accomplished by other books.”
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 456:25
Christian Science Practitioners
If you’d like to talk with a practitioner about the possibility of healing in your life, you can contact anyone advertising in The Christian Science Journal. These professionals are not compensated by their churches but paid directly by those individuals employing them on a case by case basis. Feel free to discuss their fees with them before engaging their services. Anything shared with a practitioner is kept confidential.
You can reach practitioners by phone, email, and even some by text. Office visits and home visits can be scheduled, or you can work together remotely. If you do connect with a practitioner, you can look forward to an inspiring visit.
Christian Science Nurses
Christian Science nursing is available for individuals relying on Christian Science for healing. It provides skillful, practical assistance and care to the one in need. The guidance for a Christian Science nurse can be found in the Manual of The Mother Church (Article VIII; Section 31). Christian Science nurses may work independently in individual’s homes, or for Christian Science nursing facilities and visiting services.
