Title: MOVING PAST FEAR - TO HEALING
By Lisa Troseth
Tue, April 9, 2024 at 7:00 PM ET
Location: Church, 11 Park Place, Greenwich, Connecticut
Fear can be overcome and even healed in our lives by discovering the strong connection and relationship we have to something bigger than ourselves-God.
By learning to lean and rely on this greater, higher good, we can feel moved to love beyond ourselves-and this frees us from fear and so much more.

Title: FINDING WHERE GOD IS SEEN AND FELT - WHAT'S CHURCH GOT TO DO WITH IT?
By Emra Farkas
Thu, May 2, 2024 at 7:30 PM ET
Location: Christian Science Church, 2331 Post Rd, Darien, CT 06820
Have you ever thought about God as goodness? And God's creation, including you and everyone else, as a natural extension of that goodness? There is a direct connection between this foundational way of viewing the world and the idea of church.
This lecture discusses the role of church-not just as a building or place, but as a new kind of thinking that reveals God's goodness for you and everyone around you.

Title: EXPERIENCING HEAVEN NOW
Sun, May 19, 2024 2:30 PM
Location: At the Church, 870 Main Srreet, Willimantic
In college, I was suddenly hit with a feeling of being disconnected and alone. Maybe it was because I was the only female physics major. Maybe it was because my work schedule meant I was seeing less of my friends. Whatever the reason, I knew that a change in circumstances wouldn't solve anything. It was at that point that spirituality became of primary importance in helping me find a lasting solution.
For me, spirituality means our connectedness to God and whatever practice we have that helps us recognize that. So perhaps it's not surprising that one day, after an insight about God and the ever-presence of God's love dawned on me, the disconnect vanished. Since then, I've felt a conviction that divine Love is here for me, and for everyone.
In spite of the hyper-connectedness of social media and technology, we live in an era in which many are feeling this same disconnect. We all yearn to find meaningful relationships, or a more lasting connection with peace, contentment, even health. In my lecture, I'll discuss how anyone can become genuinely aware of God's presence and experience heaven--harmony, health, and happiness--here and now.
I'll also share how the study of the Bible, and a book that explains the healing relevance of the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, can open up a new meaning of heaven to each of us. This heaven isn't a place, but a tangible feeling of being enveloped in love and spirituality that comes from understanding more about God. We'll explore the new perspectives that come from this understanding of God--healing perspectives that can resolve all kinds of difficulties, and transform our lives for good.
