“Unto us a son is given” (Isa 9:6)

A talk and workshop by Kristy L. Christian, M.A.R. Saturday, December 3, 2016 9:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

What is the true spirit of Christmas? As Christian Scientists, we know that studying the Bible narratives of Jesus’ birth can help us gain a clearer understanding of the spiritual meaning of “God’s great gift” (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany 262:20).

This talk will delve into these familiar stories and offer some fresh ideas on how we might approach this festive season to find a deeper understanding of why, in Mary Baker Eddy’s words, “nothing . . . material belongs to it” (My. 260:12).

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 prior to the date of the workshop. Tenacre does not accept credit cards.

Please complete the required registration form or phone Karen Janitz at 609-279-2335 or send an email to discovery@tenacre.org.

Christian Science Nurses complete Fundamentals I Course

We rejoice with the five participants who recently completed the Fundamentals I course for Christian Science nurses which began May 16 in our School of Christian Science Nursing.

We are grateful for this global group! – an expression of part of Tenacre’s current theme from “The Message” Bible – “bringing out the God-colors in the world”. They began their ministries with three weeks of classes in the School, and then joined the ministries in the Willow and Rose settings.  Their presence was a blessing to all.

Fundamentals I
“The Christian Science Nurse Within You!” Workshop Completed

A happy group completed our recent workshop, “The Christian Science Nurse Within You!” in our School of Christian Science Nursing.

Here are some comments from the course participants:

  • I am grateful that I could come to learn about Christian Science nursing… I learned better that nurturing and patience are key aspects of Life.
  • We covered the full scope of what was needed.
  • I’m really grateful I took time for this inspiring workshop. I learned a lot about the God-given qualities that a CS nurse already has and that we as members of The Mother Church already have…
  • I’m so glad that now I know that the Manual By-law, “Christian Science Nurse” applies to me. I always skipped over it before.
  • I loved everything about this workshop.
  • It was very enriching to share the workshop experience with a variety of different people.
  • I came away with a much more thorough knowledge of and respect for Christian Science nursing. And I had a great time!
  • For more information about the next inspiring workshop or any of our upcoming courses, please visit our School of Christian Science Nursing page.
