Christian Science: What it is and how it heals
A lecture by Michelle Boccanfuso Nanouche, CSB
Through honest talk about the questions skeptics ask, this one hour lecture tackles the essentials of Christian Science - its theology, - its Christianity, - and its role in healing - giving an insider's look at Christian Science treatment through prayer for physical cure. An optional Q&A follows the lecture.
For those who have resisted a serious consideration of Christian Science, this lecture gives a clear, logical and compelling response to the following questions:
- Isn't healing a question of purely physical factors based on a patient's biology and genetic make-up, then applying drugs and surgery to correct it?
- Isn't Christian Science prayer treatment an out-dated method in the light of modern medical advancements?
- Is Christian Science healing synonymous with positive thinking or faith-healing?
- How is Christian Science considered scientific in nature when it excludes matter and material methods in its approach to healing?
This lecture also presents the life of Mary Baker Eddy and her path of discovery, bringing out events in her early medical practice and some of her first healings through prayer that led up to discovering the eternal laws of Christ healing practiced by Bible patriarchs, prophets, Christ Jesus, early Christians and many today.
The lecture will be given at the church, 49 Park Street New Canaan, Connecticut
Thurs, November 2, Greenwich 7PM
Learn to Pray and Heal (a spiritual adventure)
A lecture by Nate Frederick
Are prayer and healing for you? I mean, if you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you're not even sure what you think about God, can you still pray and be healed?
Yes. Because prayer and healing are natural to us, and I say this as one who didn't even grow up in a religious household. But what I've discovered as I've studied Christian Science is that a willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect--for anyone.
In my lecture, I'll share more about the fundamentals of effective prayer, as I've learned from studying Christian Science, as well as how healing is truly possible for everyone.
The lecture will be given at the Christian Science church,11 Park Place,Greenwich, Connecticut at 7PM.
