As we look back on 2021, all of us at Longyear have much to be grateful for. It’s been a year of forward momentum on many fronts. Some of the highlights include:
- Receiving the National Historic Landmark status for the Mary Baker Eddy Historic House in Lynn, Massachusetts.
- Continued progress on restoring the houses in Amesbury and Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts (we look forward to reopening Amesbury in 2022!).
- Collaborating with other Christian Science organizations including CedarS Camps (seven presentations for families and young people about Mrs. Eddy’s hymns); Peace Haven (three exhibits for their new Christian Science nursing facility in St. Louis); and the Association of Organizations for Christian Science Nursing (a talk on West Coast pioneer Christian Scientists).
- Welcoming an international audience to our virtual programs—friends have tuned in from England, France, Germany, Indonesia, South Africa, the Bahamas, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Switzerland, and more.
These activities are just a few of the ways Longyear is advancing an understanding and appreciation of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science. And your contribution to the Annual Appeal — which supports our all-important general fund—helps make all these programs possible. Won’t you consider making a gift this year?
All gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $75,000, thanks to a matching challenge grant from generous Longyear friends!
