I asked the AI-powered Bing Discover bot to write about Mary Baker Eddy’s life. It’s not bad. This Friday at noon, we’ll see if we can give some dimension to the bot’s summary. The discussion of Eddy’s life and work  is part of Women’s History month. We hope you’ll join us at the Christian Science Society Reading Room, 800 Trinity Drive, across the street from Smiths in Los Alamos. (Bring your lunch!) 

Here’s what “Bing Discover” wrote:

Mary Baker Eddy’s life was a remarkable journey of faith, healing, and discovery. She was born in 1821 in New Hampshire, and grew up in a devout Christian family. She faced many challenges and hardships, including poor health, widowhood, divorce, and poverty. In 1866, she had a life-changing healing after reading a passage from the Bible. She attributed her recovery to God and the spiritual understanding of Christ’s teachings. She devoted the rest of her life to studying, teaching, and writing about what she called Christian Science, the science of Christianity. She founded The Church of Christ, Scientist, in 1879, and established several publications, including The Christian Science Monitor, a respected newspaper. She also wrote Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, her main work that explains the principles and practice of Christian Science. She died in 1910 at the age of 89, leaving behind a legacy of spiritual inspiration and healing for millions of people around the world.

A remarkable woman, Eddy is well worth getting to know. We hope to see you Friday.
