During the reports in the Annual Gathering, we will be sharing plans for expanding our campus.
Please consider answering these two questions now, to help us in our research.
** Note: for the first question:
Sheltered Care = (also called assisted living, single room with meals, housekeeping, and light assistance with daily living provided)
Independent living = (a multi-room unit, including kitchen, and being an active part of a Christian Science environment)
Staff housing = (for Christian Science nurses and essential staff, including families)
Other questions or choices will be asked during the meeting and we look forward to your responses.
Presented by Dr. Shirley Paulson, PhD
How do early followers of Jesus speak to us today?
How are today’s challenges similar to those of 2000 years ago?
What lessons can we apply today?
Can we expect hope, joy, and grace to be with us now?
Shirley’s Christian Science healing practice inspired her study of early Christian texts, broadening her understanding of healing practices and attitudes in antiquity. She received her doctorate in religion and theology at the University of Birmingham (UK). Understanding the world of early Christianity also prepared her for many years of engagement in ecumenical settings.
She has published articles in the Christian Science periodicals as well as for other ecumenical publications. Some of those include one on the Christian Science view on Climate Justice, another on Mass Incarceration, and another on Christian Science in ecumenical conversation. Before her active healing ministry, Shirley served as a chaplain in the Chicago jails and worked with inner city children. Her talk will bring to life meaningful ways to express a compassionate Christianity today.
