Title: PRAYER AND WELL-BEING: A SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE

By Nate Frederick
Sat, November 6, 2021 at 3 PM
Location: The Norwalk Inn, 99 East Ave, Norwalk, 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.

About the Lecture

This lecture, or heart-to-heart sharing, will give you an overview of Christian Science, its key principles, a bit of its history, some examples of healings and some clarifications about typical misconceptions.

I do sincerely hope that after our time together, you'll have enough of a basis to begin to test its ideas and bring more harmony to your own life.

About the Lecturer

I practiced law in France and in the United States for several years. As a litigation lawyer in France, I used to argue cases in court and I did my best to meet my clients needs. Practicing law was not just my job, it was a passion. In my childhood, I read law books for pleasure and attended court hearings. To me, being a lawyer meant precision in thinking and a desire to help others get out of trouble.

During those legal years, I got more and more interested in Christian Science. At first, I was just impressed by its remarkable healings and resolutions. But as I dug deeper, I found a profound spirituality. To me back then, religion and spirituality meant accepting a system of beliefs and the letting go of discernment and critical thinking. But the more I studied and practiced this deep spirituality, the more I found that it was not about believing in anything. It was about exercising critical thinking in understanding spiritual concepts, which in turn could be applied to one's life to bring healing.

Gradually, I gave up my law practice and became a full time Christian Science practitioner. I'm not a lawyer anymore, but I still work to help others get out of trouble, to get out of a sense of limitations, to find more freedom. But the way I see it, Christian Science is not just about feeling better or fixing problems. It's about being willing to challenge one's world view as entirely molecule based and soulless, to be open to see the world as spiritually based, and experience how this change in perspective brings inner peace and healing. It is about understanding more clearly our relationship with God, infinite good. It is about understanding Christ Jesus' message in a non dogmatic way, bringing healing, harmony and freedom to our life.

Theres nothing more important than feeling loved, valued and needed getting a clearer sense of our unbreakable connection to God, infinite Love. This is what gives us a sense of worth and purpose.

Ill talk about what our purpose is, what it is that makes us absolutely essential, and how getting a clearer understanding of who we all really are has such an impact on our lives and on the lives of others.

I'll talk about how Jesus brought healing to so many people, and how the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddys desperate need for healing led to her discovery of Christian Science.

And Ill give examples of how Christian Science is bringing folks out of dark times and difficult situations today.
