Discovery at Tenacre

“Discovery” is a series of talks, workshops, and seminars that provide opportunities for students of Christian Science to explore the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and other inspiring topics. These programs are offered free of charge.

The Discovery theme comes from the message of the lights which were part of the Christian Science exhibition at the New York World’s Fair in 1965:


can happen any time, any place

but especially here.

The lights are currently located on the Tenacre campus.

Comparing 2nd Century Christians with 21st Century Christian Scientists

Dr. Shirley Paulson, CS

Saturday, January 27, 2018

9:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.

Since 1945, some remarkable discoveries of ancient texts have come to light that impact Christian Science deeply. They were found in Nag Hammadi, Egypt and are not related to the Dead Sea Scrolls. But they strengthen our relationship to both early Christianity and contemporary Christians in the ecumenical movement. In this seminar, we will take a deep dive into some of these unfamiliar texts. We’ll explore some similarities and differences in relation to Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, and what that means to our lives as Christian Scientists in the twenty-first century.
