Discovery at Tenacre

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

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.

“The Apostle Paul: Model for Transformation and Resolution”

Madelon Maupin

Friday, May 19, 2017

7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. 


Saturday, May 20, 2017

9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 


Paul’s transformation on the Damascus Road set him on a life course that continued for thirty years, sharing the Good News of Christ Jesus with the Gentiles throughout the Roman Empire. How can his life be a model for our own transformation and resolutions to continue sharing and living the teachings of Christ Jesus?

Friday night will be an overview of Paul’s life, including a look at the first document of Christianity, I Thessalonians. Saturday morning we’ll explore Galatians in depth and in the afternoon, investigate I Corinthians. What issues did Paul address in both congregations that are relevant to our church communities today? How do we bring these lessons forward? And what sustained Paul through the many challenges he faced? Bring your questions and insights and we’ll explore these living letters together.

Madelon has a Masters in Theological Studies from San Francisco Theological Seminary, has taught at Principia Summer Session, led numerous Bible study sessions at Adventure Unlimited, taken people to the Middle East and given talks on the Bible around the world. She served as Cultural Historian for Princess Cruises for trips throughout Biblical lands. Her company website, is filled with resources for both individual and group Bible study, including talks, work-books and online streaming video courses.

The workshop is free of charge. If you wish to have lunch or dinner in our cafeteria the cost is $7.50 per meal. Payment in the form of a check can be mailed to the address below prior to the date of the workshop. Tenacre does not accept credit cards.
