A Westward Wind: Christian Science Pioneers on the Pacific Coast


Feburary 3, 2022, 2 pm and 8 pm EST

This event will take place at 2pm and 8pm EST: please RSVP to whichever you prefer.

Join Heather Vogel Frederick, Longyear’s director of research and publications, for an hour of Christian Science “family history” as she examines the lives of early workers along the West Coast, from British Columbia to Southern California. The story begins in 1885 at the flourishing Massachusetts Metaphysical College in Boston, Massachusetts, where Mary Baker Eddy’s clear teaching launched students whose healing work helped establish Christian Science across the West. You’ll learn the stories of Samuel Greenwood (British Columbia), Lou Aldrich (Portland, Oregon), Francis Fluno (Oakland, California), Sue Ella Bradshaw (San Francisco, California), John P. Filbert (Los Angeles, California), and Emma Stanton Davis and Emma Easton Newman (Riverside, California).

This virtual program will last approximately 60 minutes. You can join from anywhere using a computer, tablet, cell phone, or other devices with a camera and sound. We look forward to welcoming you!
