Asher Houses are spacious, beautiful homes built on metaphysical foundations. All of our houses have recently been renovated, making them homey, modern and safe — perfect for both higher academic and spiritual education. The diversity, energy, and comradery that develop in each house create a unique living environment that facilitates dynamic interaction among Christian Scientists from all over the country.
As a beacon of spiritual strength and moral courage, Asher Houses offer a home away from home to a rising generation of Christian Scientists who are striving to follow “the apostolic command to come out… and be separate” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p 450:3-4). Therein lies its perpetual value.
The Golden Rule sets the standard in all Asher Houses. From there you will help build a house-community to deal with issues such as cleaning the kitchen and bathroom, doing laundry, sharing communal space and protecting your privacy. These standards are your assurance that when you get to your room every night, your home is free from alcohol, drugs, sex and completely matter-focused thinking and acting.
