“…the blessings of being in this healing atmosphere” Annual Appeal 2020

“The first thing that I recognized was that I was going to be given the opportunity to be in a spot where I would have all reverence for injury replaced with a reverence for God. Every moment that I was here at the BA was an affirmation of that.”

Countless individuals over the last century have come to the refuge of the BA in time of need and found complete healing. They found within this refuge a reverence for the presence of the Christ, tender skilled care, brotherly love, expectancy of good, and unwavering joy and calm.

Your support has helped significantly to provide this refuge for those in need. It has helped maintain the availability of our Christian Science nursing services without interruption this past year. It has also allowed us to continue admitting patients to the BA as well as providing Christian Science nursing in the home through our visiting service while respecting and following state and local health regulations.

We have so much to be grateful for this past year—the inspired commitment of our staff, the dedication of donors like you stepping up to support in meaningful ways, and your love and prayerful support that are felt now more than ever.

There is still a considerable ways to go to meet the funding required to support our Christian Science nursing services this year. If you are able to give to the BA at this important time, it would mean so much to those we serve. Please consider making a gift today.

We are thankful for the assurance that the “atmosphere of Love divine” surrounds us all – in our homes, in our communities, in our nation, and around the world – and includes a sense of calm and healing.

“For God, immortal Principle,
 Is with us everywhere;
 He holds us perfect in His love,
 And we His image bear.”
                     — Christian Science Hymnal, No. 144 v. 3
