Dear friends,
I thank you for accommodating my son. I am very thankful—I can tell you…that [he] came home changed, freed from his unnatural reservedness and closed attitude which he had showed since coming back from overseas. He spoke with us, enjoyed the family and friends, even sang a song!”

Offer is good from November 1, 2019 through December 31, 2020.

East Orange, N. J.
November 25, 1944

Dear Friends:

…According to the doctor’s diagnosis, this was a case of arthritis in its very worst form, which yielded to Christian Science treatment very slowly at first. But the surrounding atmosphere of Truth and Love which so permeates in and around the Benevolent Association, combined with the lectures, the beautiful readings and everything that is done for the comfort and convenience of the guests, all played their part in enabling me to see the nothingness of error and the Allness of God.

I was able to walk all over the grounds without any discomfort whatsoever. I am also grateful to be able to say that this condition has never returned.

I have thanked God and Christian Science many times for making such a place possible where Truth and Love are so prominent that no discord of whatsoever nature can survive.

Most sincerely,

AG

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!
