Christian Healing is happening!!
It has been said that at the intersection of compassion and practical care one finds Comfort’s Art.
As related in the New Testament, Christ Jesus said, “I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you.” The tender word and Christian compassion that Jesus taught and demonstrated is the Comforter and it is still present today. It is available to all and it brings about healing from any type of malady—big or small. This Christlike compassion intersects with Art when one becomes skilled in it, in other words, when one practices compassion and develops the expectancy of good necessary for healing. It is not limited to certain people, periods in time, or situations. It is available here and now and can be found through the study of Christian Science.
Anyone and everyone is capable of imparting this Christlike compassion, but at times there may be a need for additional, more practical care. To help individuals in need of skilled physical care, there is Christian Science nursing. This type of skilled, non-medical nursing relies implicitly on the teachings of Christ Jesus, the power and omnipresence of God, and the tangible care necessary to bring about Christian healing. Christian Science nursing is found throughout the world and is performed by certified Christian Science nurses.
In the Pacific Northwest…
Comfort’s Art is present in the Pacific Northwest, not only through the Christlike touch of compassionate men and women in every day life but also through Christian Science nursing. It is the mission of Canterbury Crest to support these local Christian healing efforts. Whether one is interested in gaining a better understanding of the Christlike touch as taught in Christian Science or looking for a certified Christian Science nurse, Canterbury Crest is available to help.

In comfort’s art:
That thou may’st consecrated be
And set apart
Unto a life of sympathy.
For heavy is the weight of ill
In every heart;
And comforters are needed much
Of Christlike touch.
