Books: Winds of Change
The Woods at Acorn Farm Camp: The Year’s Journal of an Everyday Christian Scientist
Nancy Baxter’s books Open the Doors of the Temple: The Survival of Christian Science in the Twenty-first Century and Mr. Dickey: Secretary to Mary Baker Eddy have been read and praised by thousands of Christian Scientists.
This new book is the personal 12-month journal of a woman who is a six-decades member of the Christian Science Church and who sees its powerful message, of trust in a loving God as all powerful, as essential to the future. Her pieces of writing on her own church, changes in a diminishing denomination, personal challenges, seasonal occasions, and history of CS are set against a background of the walking trails across her street. The historic and beautiful grounds of the first day camp in America, closed for 40 years now, become a leading character and metaphor in this charming book.
