Title: In-Person lecture: A SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION: THE QUEST TO EXPERIENCE GOD
By: Giulia Nesi Tetreau
Date: Mon, May 23, 2022 7:30 PM
Location: Church, 260 Main St.,Ridgefield
As a child, I learned that God is all love. But at the same time, He (never She) could be distant, unknowable, and judgmental. He was loving, but could punish us harshly. He sent sunshine and babies, but also storms, wars, and disease.
Longing for meaningful connection with the divine, this two-sided God was no comfort to me as I grew older. I wanted to feel unconditional love, that God would be a reliable help no matter what I was dealing with or going through. And I didn't just want to know about God. I wanted to experience God.
My yearning was actually part of what I understand to be a larger spiritual revolution. Worldwide, across cultures, people are seeking a truer sense of Deity. Spirit, God (or whatever we call our Source) is impelling us all toward a life that's bigger and deeper than what we perceive with the five senses.
This impulsion led me to Christian Science, which, based on the life and teachings of Christ Jesus, explains that God is pure Love, and the source of all good feminine as well as masculine qualities. It also teaches that we all are God's beloved children - always, in all conditions - and that what's true and enduring is the good in our nature. These are and continue to be revolutionary concepts. So revolutionary that, as they change our viewpoints about God and ourselves, we can experience healing from disease and suffering as Jesus showed us.

When most people think about life-changing moments, they may not think of a lecture on Christian Science. That wasn't why I attended a lecture for the first time; I didn't expect to walk out a new person. But I found something in that lecture that was indeed life-transforming. Christian Science gave me a new view of God that I'd not had before: a view of God as Love itself, divine Love that loved me fully. I also discovered that this loving God was not the source of my troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. My life began to improve quickly after that and I became a healthy man after many years of suffering.
There's no question that I was jubilant about the way my life was being transformed. But what impressed me the most was finding out that these kinds of breakthroughs aren't one-time, personal miracles. God's love is available to everyone, and there's even a textbook on Christian Science healing that explains the power of God's love in our lives: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
What I've gone on to learn, and what I'll share in my lecture, is that the perspective of God and reality that Christian Science opens up is one that offers freedom from whatever in our lives seems painful, debilitating, or limiting. I'll talk about a 19th-century woman, Mary Baker Eddy, who, after a life-threatening injury, discovered this new view of God for herself and went on to explain her discovery and its Bible-based principles in her book Science and Health.
And I'll share how that discovery is still relevant to our lives today because of what it reveals about God's great love for each of us and its powerful, life-transforming effects.
