Annual meeting board report

Noontide’s trustees have been listening for our Father-Mother’s voice to shepherd us in many ways this year. Noontide is a vessel filled up so full with blessings, it’s running over! The most recent blessings are our new employees. Last December we had lovely proof that supply and demand coexist in God’s plan. Our longtime business manager had to step away from her position. We weren’t surprised when we quickly found someone who had served on our board in the past, was very qualified for the job, and a perfect fit—our new business manager, Michelle Irish!  

 

Michelle and her husband live in Owosso and are members of the Greater Lansing Church. When serving as one of our Noontide trustees, Michelle chaired a board project, where prayer led her to pick two citations as standards of measurement for our Board of Trustees yearly self-assessment.

The first standard is from The Manual of the Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy: “Christian Science Nurse. Sect. 31. A member of The Mother Church who represents himself or herself as a Christian Science nurse shall be one who has a demonstrable knowledge of Christian Science practice, who thoroughly understands the practical wisdom necessary in a sick room, and who can take proper care of the sick.” (Man., 49:7)

 

The second standard chosen for our assessment is from the Christian Science textbook: “The nurse should be cheerful, orderly, punctual, patient, full of faith, receptive to Truth and Love.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, 395:18). Our board continues to discover how rich these two standards are in meaning and application. In 2022 our full-time Supervising Christian Science Nurse requested to move to a part-time nursing position. We took the human footsteps, placing employment ads in Christian Science nursing on-line news sites. Diligently expressing the nursing qualities described in Science and Health, we saw the human need met. Today our new Christian Science nurse team of two is now in place and in operation. 
