This summer, two Longyear Museum staff members were invited to Camps Newfound and Owatonna in Harrison, Maine, to speak with the Counselors-in-Training (CIT’s). The camps, which serve young people who attend the Christian Science Sunday School, requested a Longyear workshop to better acquaint the CITs with Mary Baker Eddy’s life and work. The Longyear staff presented a research workshop that gave the CITs an opportunity to make their own discoveries about Mrs. Eddy. As the young people explored Mrs. Eddy’s published writings, letters she wrote to students, newspaper clippings, biographies, and other historical documents and artifacts, they could see connections between the spiritual lessons Mrs. Eddy was learning in her daily life and her published writings.
The CIT Programs at Newfound and Owatonna emphasize the importance of demonstrating Christian Science in daily activities. Longyear Museum was pleased to be invited to speak to this group.View All News
