The Mary Baker Eddy Library: Discover An Extraordinary Life. Explore An Amazing World

Dear Friends,

The first days of Autumn remind me of Mary Baker Eddy's words "Midst the falling leaves of old-time faiths, above the frozen crust of creed and dogma, the divine Mind-force, filling all space and having all power, upheaves the earth" (Miscellaneous Writings, 1883-1896, p. 331).

Whatever the season and outward conditions, we invite you to find a haven of peace at your Library. Thoughtful podcasts, engaging programs, and deep research await you here!

A/U Ranches youth camps early registration
Oct

to Dec 1

A/U Ranches youth camps early registration

You already know why we think you should come to the A/U Ranches this summer, but here's one family's reasons for returning to camp:

Our three kids are already #infor2018! Why? Well, in their own words:

"Uh...because camp is AMAZING! It's...well, you can't really put it into words. It's like when you love someone; you can't explain WHY...you just know."

"....because everything about camp is so welcoming. Everyone is so kind and loving. There is no negativity there. It has so much positivity and positive-ness, and everywhere you go you get help and feel security."

"Four things: Horses. Food. Friends. ...and everything else!"

We already signed up our children for next summer because there is no question that they want to go back, even if it means doing extra chores and saving birthday gift money to help pay for it themselves! Even at young ages they recognize the value camp holds for them. Camp is more than just fun mountain activities. There is a difference they can feel.

At the A/U Ranches, they grow. It's a place where they not only receive unconditional Love, but are given opportunities - both physically and mentally - to express unconditional Love, to put it into practice themselves while being supported by a loving staff. I had the privilege of being a bunkhouse parent and witnessed first-hand everything the staff gave. The spiritually-minded approach that led the staffs' way each moment contributed to creating a unique and enriching experience for each of our children. Our family is so grateful to have the A/U Ranches in our lives and we can't wait to be back!

- A/U Ranches parent

Save $50 when you sign up for camp by Dec. 1st!

There are lots of ways to make camp more affordable: multi-session and first-time camper discounts and need-based camperships are available.

Take Camp Wherever You Go

You'll get this cool A/U Ranches sling backpack when you register for camp by March 31st. Show everyone your camp spirit!

As a gift of love and outreach to our fellow man here in Houston and the Gulf Coast area, as well as Florida, 7th Church of Christ Scientist, Houston invites you to join us for a talk by Fujiko Signs titled "The Lord's Prayer".  Nothing can be more inspiring and healing than an illumined understanding of the universal power of the timely, yet timeless, Lord's Prayer that Christ Jesus gave us to meet and heal any and all needs for yourself, your family, your neighbors, and your community. Let's pull together hand-in-hand in brotherly love, one to another.
