Learning from each other
Clerk to Clerk provides an opportunity for clerks to learn from each other about the vital work of being a clerk of a Christian Science branch church or society. It also allows clerks to share ideas with The Mother Church and each other about making communications as effective as possible.
Conference call on October 21, 2014
There will be a third conference call where clerks can join with Lyle Young, Clerk of The Mother Church, to share ideas. The two call times are 12:30 pm and 8 pm, Boston time (please check with World Clock for your local time). More information will be posted here in a few weeks.

Over 100 clerks joined with Lyle Young, Clerk of The Mother Church, on this conference call. You can listen to a replay here. In the follow-up survey, clerks contributed ideas of what would be valuable to them as Clerk to Clerk goes forward.
October 2013 Conference call and survey
Around 280 clerks participated in the first Clerk to Clerk conference call in October 2013. Then they shared their ideas with each other via a survey. In their responses to the survey, clerks contributed a wealth of ideas from the highly practical to the deeply inspired.
