“Behold, today has need of you”
Joan Hellmund, CS, of Fort Collins, Colorado
“Let us exalt His name together.” Psalm 34:3
“Behold, today has need of you” is this year’s theme. The inspirational speaker is Joan Hellmund, CS, of Fort Collins, Colorado.
The following is a brief bio provided by Joan:
“As an active member of a Protestant church growing up, I always loved the Bible, and yearned to better understand and live Jesus’ teachings. After learning about Christian Science from a friend, I began an intense year-long study of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, alongside the Bible. This study, along with many patiently answered questions, helped me accept more of God’s unchanging goodness, and how to better understand and obey the truths of the Bible. It also brought an unexpected healing of a longstanding disease, and then changed my life and career path. Nine years of work in the Committee on Publication office at the Mother Church, active membership in several branch churches, and the lives and healing lessons shared by fellow members and patients, continue to inspire and open up new vistas. The ongoing lessons learned include many healings my husband, Paul, and I have witnessed through relying on Christian Science in raising our two now-grown sons. Now living in Fort Collins, I’ve been listed in The Christian Science Journal as a Christian Science practitioner for over 10 years. I continue to marvel at Christian Science and its practical teachings that ‘with God all things are possible.’”
As in the past year, although there have been numerous new regulations and restrictions to navigate and implement, Wide Horizon continues to be a safe haven for Christian Scientists who need Christian Science nursing care. We also provide safe, modest residential living on campus and continue to be a resource to the Christian Science community. As always, we are sincerely grateful to all donors for any contribution during this time. Regular donations in recognition of the importance of Christian Science nursing is important to the sustainability of Wide Horizon’s daily service to the community. The option of monthly giving to Wide Horizon is a great help.
