Mothering love!

the highest type of womanhood... [is] the love that heals.

This is taken from a phrase coined by church members grateful for the work of Mary Baker Eddy (The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p. 52:6-7). Many members even called Mrs Eddy “Mother” for a time. At her request that practice was discontinued, and she has since been known as the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and leader of the Christian Science movement. The church she founded in Boston is still called The Mother Church.

So while we wholeheartedly celebrate all those who are amazing mums on May 8, we can also gratefully cherish the spiritual quality of God’s mother-love expressed by any family members, friends, fellow workers and professional carers who strive to live “the highest type of womanhood” as healers.

I write and speak on spirituality from my perspective as a Christian Science practitioner. I am also an Associate Editor for the Christian Science periodicals. I studied at the University of Surrey earning a BSc Hons Degree in Modern Mathematics before the impact of spirituality on health caught my attention and re-shaped my career.
