Writing for the Periodicals Workshop


First Church of Christ, Scientist, Westport is happy to be hosting a "Writing for the Periodicals Workshop" on Saturday, January 20th from 9:30 to 11:00/11:30 am in our Sunday School at church. This will be a Skype meeting and Kim Crooks Korinek, Associate Editor, will be facilitating the event from Boston.

This meeting is open to all branch church and Mother Church members and all friends who love the Christian Science periodicals and want to contribute to their healing message and bless the world.

Here's what you can expect:

  • An introduction and big picture vision of our periodicals and how we are the bright and permanent part of that vision.
  • Differences between the periodicals (Journal, Sentinel, Herald, Monitor); how they work together and what they do for the world.
  • What is it like to write for the periodicals? How do we start? We'll explore this question from a metaphysical perspective as well as from a practical standpoint (how to actually start and put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard).
  • A behind-the-scenes-look at the editing process.
  • How to submit your article.
  • With the use of writing prompts and Kim's help, we will actually do some writing exercises!
  • Question and answers.

There's no cost to participate in this workshop. RSVP, while not required, will be appreciated and helpful to us in setting up the seating for participants.

Making Meaningful Change: How God's Love Can Change Your Life And The World


A lecture by Mark McCurties, CS

The public is warmly invited to attend a free Christian Science lecture

The desire to change ourselves, to improve our character, our relationships, our life prospects can also go beyond just the boundary of our own lives and the four walls of our home. Many men and women around the world have a sincere yearning to improve the collective experience of mankind," says McCurties. "In this lecture, I will explain how God's loving and saving power is the greatest agent for change, and that through a right understanding of God, His power can be seen and felt right here and now, bringing health and peace to the world.

The ideas in this lecture are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

McCurties has had a life-long love of the Bible and its inspiring message of individual triumph over adversity. After graduating from college he spent a number of years in the field of education where he worked as a camp director, experiential educator, resident counselor, and athletics coach. While working with young people, he had many opportunities to witness the healing power of God, and these inspiring experiences eventually led him into the full-time public practice of Christian Science.
