Mary Baker Eddy
by Rolf A. F. Witzsche,
Mary Baker Eddy is honored across the world only for a few aspects of her achievements, most of which pertain to her titles. This is hardly sufficient to do justice to her, or to be just to ourselves. To celebrate her life involves a celebration of God in the tallest sense possible, on the basis of her leading edge discoveries.
Mary Baker Eddy dedicated her life to the moral, spiritual, and scientific development of humanity and its mental healing. In the course if this pursuit she left us with a wealth of largely unknown achievements that may some day be counted among the tallest gifts ever presented to mankind. Still, with these achievements to her credit she does not place herself above humanity and out of reach, but presents herself as an exemplar of the potential for achievement that is native to every human being on this planet.
The potential that Mary Baker Eddy opened up for us to consciously celebrate God in our very being is worth a celebration of her life, including her own pioneering way of celebrating God. This is what is involved in celebrating her as the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science?
Mary Baker Eddy's life was a celebration of God. Her pioneering discoveries are breakthrough achievements in their own right that we have cause to celebrate, but their root is in God. They represent a celebration of God, and as Mary Baker Eddy discovered, we have much to celebrate in the course of discovering the existence and the nature of God. We celebrate that on which all health and healing rests, on which civilization rests. But most of all, celebrating Mary Baker Eddy's achievements means that we celebrate God in a way no one has before her since the days of Christ Jesus.
Mary Baker Eddy is also known as The Pastor Emeritus of the Christian Science church, a title that is rarely acknowledged, less understood, and is quite often challenged in court. Thus, the question, is The Pastor Emeritus dead? Future ages will declare that The Pastor Emeritus is very much alive.
