Podcast: “…a deep appreciation of Christian Science nursing”

Alaina Carlson was led to the healing ministry of Christian Science nursing in an unexpected way.  Alaina explains to the BA’s Monty Haas: “I had never planned out what I was going to do after college… So, purposefully I didn’t choose a career path, knowing that God would put something in front of me that was perfect for me. In a really quiet moment when I was receptive, God just seemed to say ‘Christian Science nursing.’ It was really special. I had never experienced God speaking to me in that way before…. The fact that it was so bluntly put in front of me without having any context, it was nothing but divine Love showing the way to something that was truly special for me.”

    I’ve been involved in Christian Science Nursing for 20 years, as well as serving on my local Christian Science facility Board. The transition from college to Christian Science nursing happened for me much as it did for Alaina, so I smiled at her comments about not bothering to argue with God. (Unlike herself I had a definite career path in mind entirely different than where God was guiding me!) I have great joy and hope for the future of this branch of our movement listening to this dear young woman, so eloquent and clear, thanks for sharing!

    Having worked at the BA for a number of years before retirement and now living in The Residences at 910 (on the BA campus) i have had the privilege of meeting many of those individuals whose path has led them to Christian Science nursing. Each one has an inspiring story to tell, and Alaina is no exception! Thanks to her for sharing hers, and especially for reminding us that we all have the opportunity to love and appreciate the By-law for the Christian Science nurse, not only in prayerfully supporting this precious ministry, but also in allowing its provisions to change our own thoughts and lives.
