Last month I laid out some ambitious plans to get my life on track in 2019, some of those things are going better than others -- I'm remembering to take my multi-vitamin, but "meal planning" (even with an app) has failed.

Christian Science (not to be confused with Scientology) … Continue reading Launching www.ExChristianScience.com
This is a fascinating talk by Dr. Linda Kramer, author of Perfect Peril: Christian Science and Mind Control -- I have not read it, but it is on my list. Content warning: Dr. Kramer has "found Jesus" so there are strong, recurrent themes of Christianity in the first 20 minutes. Around the 20 minute mark, … Continue reading Fellowship of Former Christian Scientists, Dr. Linda Kramer’s Talk
