I’m here! I know, I know, it’s been a long time since I posted a blog. Not a typical lapse for me…sorry about that.
I have been deeply involved the last two weeks preparing for my yearly Association meeting with my students.
Had a super meeting yesterday with lots of healing activity, and now have breathing space to catch up on a few delayed projects. So here I am once again blogging away…
For those of you not familiar with Association meetings, they are a continuing education program for those dedicated to becoming effective Christian Science healers.
The Board of Education of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, MA, holds what is called a Normal Class, once every three years. In this class, a small group of experienced and qualified Christian Science practitioners are educated to become Christian Science teachers. These teachers, in turn, return to their fields, and once a year, teach a two week primary class to people who want to be Christian Science healers.
I am one of these teachers, along with approximately 200 other instructors located in various countries and regions around the world.
If you’ve ever wondered what CSB means behind the name of a Christian Science practitioner, it means they graduated from a Normal Class and qualified to become a Christian Science teacher. Where the “B” comes from in CSB, I’m not sure. Maybe it means a graduate of the Christian Science Board of Education, but that’s only speculation on my part. I’m not certain.
But anyway…after a student graduates from primary class, they are eligible to attend yearly Association meetings held by their teacher.
And that’s what happened here yesterday. My students, along with guests from other Associations whose teacher has passed on, met for a day to enlarge our understanding of God, increase our effectiveness as Christian Science healers, and stay alert to influences of error that would sideline our progress Spiritward.
It was a terrific day. The collective power and inspiration one feels when participating in an event like this is unequaled in any other setting. It truly is a very special time that I look forward to each year.
So, let’s see…what fun items can I blog now…
