"Giving freely of ourselves and what we all gain," a talk by practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, Melanie Wahlberg. The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus' life and teachings, showing how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science. The talk is free, open to the community, and sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Westport.

"When we feel overwhelmed by life's problems, we may want to try to get more from the world," says Ms. Wahlberg. "But when we do the opposite-give more of ourselves or focus on the God-given qualities we already have to express or contribute, we find that we end up not lacking anything. Really, we gain the unexpected good of joy, health, and strength that move our lives and the world forward."

Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Ms. Wahlberg will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Ms. Wahlberg will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, and how she came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus' demand, "He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father" (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For over 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, with healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.

"Dar libremente de nosotros mismos y de lo que todos ganamos", charla de la practicante de sanación de la Ciencia Cristiana y oradora internacional, Melanie Wahlberg. La charla se centrará en los preceptos universales de curación que se encuentran en la Santa Biblia, especialmente en la vida y las enseñanzas de Cristo Jesús, mostrando cómo están disponibles para que cualquiera los entienda y experimente a través de la lente de la Ciencia Cristiana. La charla es gratuita, abierta a la comunidad y patrocinada por la Primera Iglesia de Cristo, Científica, en Westport.

"Cuando nos sentimos abrumados por los problemas de la vida, es posible que queramos intentar sacar más del mundo", dice la Sra. Wahlberg. "Pero cuando hacemos lo contrario: dar más de nosotros mismos o centrarnos en las cualidades dadas por Dios que ya tenemos para expresar o contribuir, descubrimos que al final no nos falta nada. Realmente, obtenemos el bien inesperado de la alegría, la salud, y fuerza que hacen avanzar nuestras vidas y el mundo".

Compartiendo ejemplos de curación de su propia vida y práctica profesional de la Ciencia Cristiana, la Sra. Wahlberg explicará por qué la Ciencia Cristiana es tanto cristiana como científica, lo que significa que las personas pueden probar su efectividad por sí mismas, como se describe completamente en el libro Ciencia y Salud con Claves. a las Escrituras, escrito por la fundadora del movimiento de la Ciencia Cristiana, Mary Baker Eddy.

EM. Wahlberg también abordará la vida de Mary Baker Eddy y cómo llegó a comprender, confirmar y enseñar lo que ella sentía que era la curación cristiana original. La propia Eddy dijo que estaba especialmente inspirada por la demanda de Jesús: "El que cree en mí, las obras que yo hago, él también las hará; y obras mayores que éstas hará, porque yo voy a mi Padre" (que se encuentra en el Evangelio de Juan 14:12 en la Biblia).

Durante más de 150 años, personas de todo el mundo han trabajado para seguir a Cristo Jesús en esta práctica del cristianismo y continúan haciéndolo hoy, con curaciones de enfermedades físicas y dificultades personales.
