The Christian Science Nursing Arts Graduation is an inspiring event that the BA shares with the community each year. On April 14, the Chapel was filled with friends and guests honoring the nine graduates as they move forward in their spiritual ministry of healing. Here we share highlights, including excerpts from the talk given by Class Speaker, Reagan Kabuluku.

 

“The training has primarily given me the opportunity to secure the skills, the ethics, and the art of Christian Science nursing in order to represent the Church Manual By-law “Christian Science Nurse.” It has been a moment of spiritual growth. As a Christian Science nurse, you feel the need to be meta- physically prepared all the time. Your everyday tasks require a clear understanding of Truth that heals. Such understanding, as we know, comes from a day-to-day study of the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy, and the periodicals as well. As you are becoming more familiar with the truth in these books it really does become part of your daily life. And this is what people see in your ministry. Like Elijah you must choose to go up to the Mount Horeb where God is revealed and fresh inspiration is received. When this clarity of thought is maintained in your ministry, the new heaven opens up. You see clearly how to turn away from the testimony of the physical senses without turning away from your fellow-man. At this level you will not lose sight of who man really is—as the reflection of divine Love, perfect and intact. It is this quality of thought that is so needed in this holy work—to identify your fellow-man as the reflection of nothing less than good while also attending to his needs.”

This year marks 100 years since the BA first opened its doors in 1919. In recognition of the loving and devoted work of Christian Science practitioners and Christian Science nurses over the years, we’ve been highlighting a few of the many healing testimonies shared by those who have been blessed by this refuge. Below is a selection with links to the original testimonies published in the Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal in the 1930’s, the second decade following the opening of the BA:

It’s only 39 days until the AOCSN converges on Boston for our yearly conference.

The AOCSN (Association of Organizations for Christian Science Nursing) is the trade association for Christian Science nursing organizations around the world. It meets yearly in different locations, and in 2019 it chose Boston in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Benevolent Association.

The conference attendees will be staying in downtown Boston where they can easily attend and take tours of The Mother Church, visit The Mary Baker Eddy Library and Mapparium, and take tours of the Christian Science Plaza.

The AOCSN Conference is July 8-11, 2019, and is designed to provide a global perspective on Christian Science nursing and strong metaphysical support for our healing ministries. The theme is “Christian Science Nurse: “…a help…to maintain the dignity and defense of our Cause” (Church Manual 89th edition by Mary Baker Eddy). It includes excellent speakers on current topics, breakout sessions for in-depth discussions, and plenty of networking time. We are expecting about 120 attendees from around the world, and all representing Christian Science nursing organizations.

The BA will be hosting everyone at the conference for dinner and a tour of our Original Building and the Christian Science Nursing Building. We are so pleased that our new chiller is installed and operating and it will definitely be included on our tour.

Following dinner at the BA, we will all head over to Longyear Museum to complete the evening with a book talk by Heather Vogel Frederickson and a visit to special exhibits.

For attendees that arrive early or stay over for a couple of days, we are partnering with Longyear Museum and The Mother Church for special tours. There will be a half-day trip to Mrs. Eddy’s historic homes in Swampscott and Lynn MA along with Red Rock. There will be a guided tour for our group of The Mother Church following the Sunday service and a walking tour of Mrs. Eddy’s Boston.

We are so honored for the Benevolent Association to be recognized on the 100th anniversary of its opening. And we are especially grateful to be able to share Boston and the BA with all of our many loved colleagues.

As we look forward to the BA’s next 100 years of Christian Science Nursing and healing, we are taking several steps to continue preserving this refuge. For example, when the main air conditioning system in the Christian Science Nursing Building failed during the hottest days of last summer, we were confident that divine Love would lead the way to a resolution. All the way from installing temporary portable A/C units in each room – to completely re-engineering the cooling systems — this nine-month timeline and gallery illustrate the countless hours and hard work of many staff and contractors – leading to a successful installation – just in time for warmer New England weather!
