The Christian Science pastor
It is common for people to want to speak with a church pastor. The Christian Science pastor is available around the clock. That's because our pastor is not a person, but two books: the Bible,and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. You can bring your thoughts and questions to these books, and you will find the answers and help you're looking for.
