Congratulations to Andrew Spires and Megan Gerould who are training to be Christian Science nurses.  This May they completed the classroom portion of their CSNA I training and have now started their 6-weeks of mentored instruction at Peace Haven with a Journal-listed Christian Science nurse.

Andrew commented that he wants to become a Christian Science nurse because, “I was so filled with Love from what I heard and how I felt in the one day “Comfort’s Art: Exploring the Foundation and Practical Aspects of Christian Science Nursing” seminar held at Peace Haven in April 2018. I knew I wanted to learn more about this Christly work for our Church and its members. As I transitioned from providing full-time care for our daughter I wanted to shift my focus from past work as a Graphic Artist to supporting our Church and fellow Christian Scientists who are relying on Christian Science for healing. I knew nursing was connected to the words and works of Christ Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy, however I was intrigued by how acutely it was and that Mrs. Eddy outlined the provision for this work in the Christian Science Manual as a By-law.”

And Megan shared: “I decided to go into Christian Science nursing because I have always felt this wonderful capacity to love—anyone, anything, just working together to ensure everyone’s happiness. I always enjoy thinking, “How can I make a patient’s day better?” and “What can I learn from them?” Everyone is a child of God, no matter what their age, and by working to maintain a harmonious atmosphere a wonderful sense of home can be shared with all.”

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Christian Science nurse, please contact us to explore the possibilities. Peace Haven offers this training in partnership with the Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
