What do you know about Christian Science?

July 31 to August 6

with Anne Melville

Mary Baker Eddy discovered Christian Science in the 1800s. That’s a long time ago, but it’s as fresh and viable today as it was when she learned more about God and proved what she learned through spiritual healing.

Our guest today, Anne Melville, who is currently serving as the President of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in a family that practiced Christian Science. But she’s continuing to learn more and more about Mrs. Eddy’s life-changing discovery and is eager to share some of what she’s found in this week’s episode.
