Would you like to share your ideas for this new space?  You are invited to attend a meeting Monday, July 10th at 7 PM in the current reading room location to share your ideas.

Writers Workshop follow up will be Sunday June 11

Barbara Vining and Kim Korinek have inspired us to write for the Christian Science periodicals.

Barbara started the meeting by going over the mission of each periodical.  Did you know that the Journal, Sentinel, and Herald each has an individual mission?

We discussed our motive for writing: letting your unique voice be heard.

Think about the audience to whom you are writing. We are not writing just for other Christian Scientists and this is not just a record of your personal experience. We are writing for the world.  We are writing for our neighbor who knows nothing about Christian Science.  We are writing to share our love for God, man and Christian Science. In writing, we are speaking heart to heart.

Kim and Barbara share many ways to get an idea started like starting with the title,  an outline, or a central idea. Find your point and stick to it, expand it,   try writing as if you are writing a letter to God, to the world, or to a loved one.  Let Spirit speak to you.

Editing!  On the face of it, no one likes to be edited.  But we all need it. Mrs Eddy edited and reedited her own work many times. In the meeting we looked into a few very funny misstatements that were not caught in editing.  Love the editing process.

We had two 15 minute writing sessions and time to ask questions.

There will be another chance to ask questions regarding your articles in hand on June 11 when we will offer some group editing in a Skype session with Barbara and Kim for more questions.

Please feel free to come and bring your rough drafts.

 

The newly formed National Fund for Christian Science Nursing is now open

The Principle Foundation is administering this new fund that would enable those who desire Christian Science nursing to have access to this resource regardless of their financial situation.  The Fund is now giving grants to Christian Science nursing patients in the United States who cannot pay the full cost of their care.

The fund, NFCSN, can help in any situation where a Christian Science nurse is needed including in home care and facilities.  The grants may not pay for all costs associated with care, they can be an invaluable aid to those individuals who are seeking and finding healing through Christian Science.

You can find more information or to donate to the fund at
