Join us a Sixth Church Reading Room on Thursday, October 12, 2017 for a webcast sponsored by the Mary Baker Eddy Library
Webcast: 100 years of Christian Science military ministry — a call to serve
Time: 11:00 a.m. CDT
This webcast marks the centennial of Christian Science military ministry, honoring the men and women who since 1917 have answered this call to serve. Walter Cross and Martin Jackson became the first Christian Scientists to serve as chaplains in the United States Armed Forces during World War I. Since then, in peacetime and wartime, 125 Christian Scientists have added their names and their experiences to the ongoing story of military ministry, committing to the highest ideals of Christian service and healing.
