  2. Dave Horn says:

    Daughter of patience, compassion and care,
    Martha and Mary, united in Love,
    Yours a persuasion of unceasing prayer —
    Yours a profession ordained from above.

    Hearts who would vanquish mortality’s claim
    Find in your gentleness heavenly rest.
    Trusting the wisdom you use in His name,
    Fearless we turn to the Christ, and are blest.

    CSJ January 1968

    Thank you, each of you, for being unselfish and loving your fellowman (and woman!) enough to become a Christian Science nurse!

    Because of your professional training, you know how to help in the most needed, effective way. You are not a “buddy”. You are a witness to the Truth. We appreciate your support, as you work with us and a Christian Science Practitioner.


  4. Bonnie Maehlmann says:

    Congratulations. It’s a great profession, I saw most everything healed–some had been medically diagnosed. I’m happy I chose this work. Be smart and don’t move a lot. Moving around makes it harder financially. I did most of my work in facilities — loved it. However Visiting Nursing was the most rewarding as people were so grateful to be able to stay in their homes. Do join and be active in church work. Let your light shine there. Hopefully you can quickly become chairman of a Committee that makes it easier to fit into your work schedules. All the best to you.

  5. Rhonda Turvey says:

    Congratulations to all! Thank you for your loving commitment to the great cause of Christian Science. Godspeed!

  6. Derek Swire says:

    How wonderful! You have reached the high goal of being a Christian Science nurse. Well done! I know how much your work will be appreciated as you express needed love, compassion, spiritual support, as well as “the practical wisdom necessary in a sick room.” You must never let anything or anyone make you forget that you are bringing blessings to those in need.

    Mrs. Eddy once defined keeping your watch as defeating the mesmerist, breaking the belief that mesmerism has power, and breaking the supposed laws that the mesmerist can produce suffering asleep or awake. (See “We Knew Mary Baker Eddy”, expanded edition pages 447-450) You will be required to keep your watch. I know that with the training you have received, you are able to do this. To paraphrase Paul in his letter to the Galatians, You have run well. What can hinder you that you cannot obey the Truth? NOTHING!

    Have a glorious time in your new career.

  10. Wonderful to know that you will all be serving this healing Cause! Congratulations to each of you. The power and grace of Love is with you and will guide your every thought and action in your unselfed service.. You are cherished. Thank you for your willingness to let your light shine.
    Big Hugs,

  11. “So shalt thou be with power endued
    Like him who went about
    The Syrian hillsides doing good
    And casting demons out.
    The Great Physician liveth yet
    Thy friend and guide to be;
    The Healer by Gennesaret
    Shall walk the rounds with thee.”
    Christian Science Hymnal # 96 by: John Greenleaf Whittier

  16. Phyllis Band says:

    Many years ago I was working in the dining room at the BA, and made friends with a handful of Christian Science Nurses in training. Some of them came across the Atlantic from Britain by sea, the only way to cross in those days. Now to learn there are 18 fully trained Christian Science Nurses graduating this Sunday fills me with joy and much gratitude. Congratulations to each of you dear ones. God will continue to guide and inspire you.

    Congratulations to all the graduates and overflowing thanks to each of you for your well done work. And special congratulations to Paula Brensinger, cherished member of our branch church, for expressing all those qualities which Mrs. Eddy requires of nurses. I expect to see all the graduates at graduation and thank each of you individually.
