The High Ridge House (HRH) Annual Meeting is just around the corner! It has been thoughtfully prepared as an inspirational offering,-- a gift to the community at large. We are so looking forward to this opportunity to share a healing message and to update you on positive developments and progress at HRH! We hope to welcome you on Saturday, September 17th. The meeting starts at 2:00 PM. It will be held indoors, followed by a reception outside, weather permitting. We invite you to come early and enjoy the grounds and views of the Hudson River.
Andrea McCormick, CS, the keynote speaker for the Annual Meeting, will address this important question: “Medicine or Mind?” In preparation for the day, Ms. McCormick requests that every participant read the section on “Medicine” on pages 142-164 in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
Throughout her writings, Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer of the Science of the Christ, assures us that God is our Saviour. “This being the case, what need have we of drugs, hygiene, and medical therapeutics, if these are not man’s preservers?” (Pan. 4:25-27).
In addition to hearing the keynote address, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the vital work that Christian Science nurses do at High Ridge House in caring for those who have chosen to rely on God alone for healing. They lovingly meet the human needs and provide spiritual support to patients at our facility and those who prefer home visits. Also, since our facility operates 24/7, 365 days a year, those in need can get comfort and assistance during a crisis simply by calling High Ridge House day or night.
The Annual Meeting will also include a financial status report. We will give an update about progress at High Ridge House and how Christian Scientists around the country are coming to our aid prayerfully and financially so that we may continue to do our important work. And last but not least, it is also an occasion for us to thank our many supporters and for you to be able to meet and greet Christian Scientists from our region over delicious refreshments.
All in all, 5959 Independence Avenue in Riverdale will be the place to be on September 17th at 2:00 pm! We look forward to seeing you!
With joyful anticipation,
