Who are they?
First and foremost, a Christian Science teacher is a healer who is deeply convinced that anyone who loves God can learn in some measure to heal as Christ Jesus did. A teacher’s training, depth of understanding, and extensive experience as a practitioner of Christian Science healing qualifies him or her to be authorized by the Church to teach others how to utilize the precepts of Christian Science to heal. Every year a teacher offers a course, generally lasting twelve sessions, in which pupils are taught how to deepen their ability to heal. This Primary class of instruction in Christian Science healing marks the beginning of a deeper commitment to a lifetime of spiritual growth, progress, and love of humanity. Also, once a year teachers invite their students, who make up an Association of pupils, to come together to be spiritually refreshed, receive further teaching, and share current examples of healing.
Teachers appreciate inquiries and are always happy to answer your questions. They are available to provide spiritual treatment through prayer. You should feel free to contact any teacher, not just those in your own area, to find out more about class instruction or to get help.
What do they teach?
Christian Science Primary class instruction was designed by Mary Baker Eddy for those who have been inspired by the ideas in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and who have a heartfelt desire to help others through prayer. It’s a unique and precious opportunity to dig further into your relationship with God.
