BANGOR — Members of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bangor, will staff a booth at the Bangor Mall today to provide information on Christian Science and its founder, Mary Baker Eddy.
Readings from the Bible and “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy constitute the basis of Christian Science.
Mary Baker Eddy was elected to the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1995 as the only American woman to found a worldwide religion. In 1992, the Women’s National Book Association named her book as “one of 75 books by women authors whose words have changed the world.”
Members of the Bangor church will be on hand from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Copies of the textbook will be available at the booth or can be obtained at the church’s Christian Science Reading Room at 114 Harlow St., Suite I (lower level) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
