One of our members visited three of Mary Baker Eddy's homes in New Hampshire operated by Longyear Museum in October 2021. Here is a recording of her presentation given during a Wednesday service.
The National Leadership Council of Discovery Bound met in New Orleans for two weeks in June 2021 to perform service projects in our area. These rising 10th graders from around the United States helped with construction in the 9th Ward, distributed food with a food bank; and planted bulrushes in the marshes. (Louisiana has been losing its wetlands so planting bulrushes is part of a coastal restoration project. This muddy experience was actually a favorite memory of one of the teenagers as she had never been on an airboat skimming along our coastal prairies.) We celebrated being together with a luncheon in our Sunday School; it was such a joy!
Longyear Presentations are always a highlight as we hear inspiring stories of those who served on Mary Baker Eddy’s staff. In November 2019, we had a live video chat with Heather Vogel Frederick, the author of the book "Life at 400 Beacon Street: Working in Mary Baker Eddy's Household.” Jared Eggers, our regional contact for Longyear, was also present to answer questions.
We’ve hosted Regional Meetings for The Mother Church. In March 2019, Christian Scientists from throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas came together for a Town Hall meeting with Keith Womack, president of The Mother Church.
