Renewal and Rebirth
Dear ,
It is spring! Outside our windows at High Ridge House, birds are singing, the voice of the dove is heard, crocuses and daffodils are beginning to peak through the winter hardened soil, gentle buds are appearing on the trees. And the light! It is glorious. It is all a symbol of renewal and rebirth.
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, loved spring. In “Voices of Spring” she said: “Human hope and faith should join in nature’s grand harmony, and, if on minor key, make music in the heart. And man, more friendly, should call his race as gently to the springtide of Christ’s dear love. St Paul wrote, ‘Rejoice in the Lord always.’ And why not, since man’s possibilities are infinite, bliss is eternal, and the consciousness thereof is here and now?” (Miscellaneous Writings 330:7-13)
We are happy to report that High Ridge House has been very active these past few months. Patients are coming and going home healed. Employees, too, are enjoying rebirth and renewal -- Lynn Meyerson, former Director of Outreach and Hospitality, is on a new adventure working at Lynn House, and Sandy Effron, Director of Christian Science Nursing, will be leaving on April 9 to live in Florida.  Viviana Echavarria, Maria Pichardo, and Janet Rosen have all been promoted, and we are delighted to have Eric Port join us as the new Director of Christian Science Nursing.  Click here for more information about Eric.
One of our patients, after she had left High Ridge House, with her healing well under way, noted in a testimony given to High Ridge House, “Even though I wasn’t entirely 'back-to-normal' I knew it was time to go home and complete the healing there. And then at home I simply didn’t notice when 'back-to-normal' finally arrived. Instead one day I suddenly realized that during the past couple of weeks I had passed beyond the old 'normal' and kept going. I was better, stronger, healthier, happier, more energetic and more confident than I had been before the problem began several months earlier.”
Rebirth and renewal? Absolutely. And this, of course, is what a Christian Science healing is. We could say of it . . .
“When from the lips of Truth one mighty breath
Shall, like a whirlwind, scatter in its breeze
The whole dark pile of human mockeries;
Then shall the reign of Mind commence on earth,
And starting fresh, as from a second birth,
Man in the sunshine of the world’s new spring,
Shall walk transparent like some holy thing.”
The High Ridge House Board of Trustees invites you to join us in rejoicing in "the springtide of Christ's dear love." Live joyfully.  Rejoice in the Lord.  This altitude of thought supports healing.  This expectancy of good, this recognition of man's infinite possibilities here and now, opens thought to all the sweet promise that spring symbolizes.
With love and appreciation,
Fran Hall
President, Board of Trustees
