In her address to Christian Scientists in Chicago in 1888,  Mrs. Eddy said: “In obedience to the divine nature, man’s individuality reflects the divine law and order of being.  How shall we reach our true selves?  Through Love … I will love, if another hates.  I will gain a balance on the side of good, my true being.  This alone gives me the forces of God wherewith to overcome all error.”

Mary Baker Eddy

(Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896, p. 104)


Emergence International


Welcome Embrace, the new support/discussion group for Christian Scientists from a Lesbian/Gay/Bi/Transgender/Questioning (LGBTQ) perspective.

Embrace is open to all LGBTQ Christian Scientists, their families, friends and supporters who live in the greater Chicago area as we follow the writings and teachings of our beloved leader Mary Baker Eddy.

It is with the same dedication to Mrs. Eddy’s teachings of the early Chicago workers that Embrace endeavors to emulate.  Equally important, we wish to provide a safe-haven for Christian Scientists with an LGBTQ orientation that is free from the odious inflictions of homophobia, and judgment.
