Lecture Information:

One of the central themes of Christ Jesus' ministry was to teach and show that the power of God's love can help us to overcome the various injustices that we face in the world. In fact, Jesus fully proved the power of God's might. He healed all kinds of disease, transformed the worst types of behavior, he stopped violent acts from occurring, and he forgave his enemies in order to save them, proving hatred to be powerless in the face of divine Love. Ultimately, Jesus showed that the power of God's love doesn't just help us to cope with the ills of the world; it helps us to conquer them.

Yet, for all the remarkable healing work that Jesus did, he never once took the credit. Instead he always gave the glory and honor to God, our Father in heaven. So sincere was Jesus in his expression of humility that he even said, "I can of my own self do nothing" (John 5:30). In other words, Christ Jesus, the Son of God, who overcame all the ugliness that the world could throw at him, said (in essence), the good that I do isn't personal to me; it's the Father working through me.

Mary Baker Eddy, the woman who founded the Christian Science church, perceived the powerful impact that Jesus' humility had on his healing and saving mission. She wrote, "Great charity and humility is necessary in this work of healing. The loving patience of Jesus, we must strive to emulate." (Miscellaneous Writings 7:7-9)

In this lecture, we will discuss how learning to follow the example of Christ Jesus, particularly his profound display of humility, can empower each one of us to heal and to overcome the hard problems that we face. We will discuss what true humility is, how it links us to God, and by extension, how it connects us with God's healing and saving laws. There is great need for healing in the world today, and Christ-like humility can help us to meet that demand.

Title: CHRISTIAN SCIENCE - A CLEARER VIEW OF YOU

By Lyle Young
Thu, Oct 14 at 7:30 PM
Location: Church 11 Park Place, Greenwich

Who are we, really? You and I, and all humanity? The health, harmony, and joy we experience in life depends on our answer to this question.

Mary Baker Eddy, who founded the Christian Science church, had a profound insight into the nature of God as infinite Love. She perceived that God is the only substance, intelligence and Life of the universe, without the opposition typically ascribed to darkness or evil. Moreover, Eddy realized that this was the basis of Jesus' healing works.

This is revolutionary. Eddy didn't say that conflict, struggle, and disease exist as unavoidable realities, then in addition there's also God's love. Rather, she saw infinite Love, and genuine creation as the perfect spiritual expression of this Love, instead of the imperfect, material existence we typically assume unavoidably defines us. To Eddy, infinite Love, being infinite, simply excludes the possibility of anything else.

Such an unusual theology might have ended as a footnote to history, except that Eddy and her students boldly used it to reinvigorate Christianity and its lost element of healing. Since then, some 65,000 accounts of healing have been verified and published healings of everything from cancer to AIDS to blindness, from drug addiction to broken bones.

To the degree that we understand our identity as purely spiritual knowing that each of us shines, now and eternally, as a unique expression of infinite Love we experience healing. The result is wellness, opportunity, spiritual progress, and the highest degree of joy.

Title: PRAYER AND WELL-BEING: A SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE

By Nate Frederick
Sat, September 25, 2021 at 11:00 AM ET
Location: Westport Women's Club, 44 Imperial Ave., Westport, Connecticut

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.
