Morning Light Foundation
Mission Statement: “To provide individualized, skilled Christian Science nursing care to those relying on Christian Science treatment for healing, with the expectancy of quick and whole healing.”
Morning Light is dedicated to supporting Christian Science nursing care in obedience to The Manual By-law for the Christian Science nurse, which states: “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.” (Article VIII, Section 31, page 49)
We are always expectant of “quick and whole healing” in our ministry. The Christian Science nurse stands firm with the Christian Science practitioner and patient in their radical reliance on Christian Science treatment, while lovingly giving skilled care to the patient. Whether someone is being cared for in their home, or at the Lodge, the individual is nurtured in a healing atmosphere of love.
Both our Christian Science Visiting Nurse Service in Atlanta, and the Savannah/Low Country, are able to help in the patient’s homes for one to two hours. The service is on-call 24 hours, 7 days a week. If a call comes in that is further than the normal travel area, we help to find support from either someone on our team, or another Christian Science nurse closer to the caller’s location. We take calls from Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Northern Florida.
The Morning Light Lodge is a home in the Atlanta area, which is open for short-term care. It is a quiet, healing sanctuary, free from outside interference.
The Christian Science nurses can also provide care in the home. If someone lives a distance from Atlanta, we may be able to have one of our Christian Science nurses stay for several nights up to a week. We do all we can to see that there is a perfect answer in supporting all those that call us.
