Next year marks a 100-year milestone 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’d like to highlight a few of the many healing testimonies shared by those who have been blessed by this refuge. Below is a small selection with links to the original testimonies published in the Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal in the BA’s first two decades:
