The healing power of stillness —
April 28, 2018
"Each of us has a right to feel the presence of a deep-settled peace and calm from God's all-encompassing Love."
An online webinar with Lari Snorek-Yates
Larissa will talk about how everyone can discover a stillness that brings rest and healing to our everyday lives. Christian Science healing teaches how to find a deep-settled calm within ourselves that cannot be disrupted by fear or any outward disturbance.
The talk will include examples of how the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy have brought lasting peace and complete healing to individual lives.

Foundation for Spiritual Healing
The Bible is the basis of Christian Science and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Scientists study the Bible and work to apply the lessons learned from Scripture in their daily lives. The King James Version is the most widely used translation and is quoted more than 800 times in Science and Health.
Science and Health
In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus. From the first chapter, "Prayer," to her exegesis of Genesis and Revelation, to a Glossary of terms, the author invites readers to deeply consider the allness of God, the perfection of man as God's spiritual creation, and how an understanding of these facts brings healing — just as they did in Biblical times. As explained in her book Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, (p. 259) "Truth is the power of God which heals the sick and the sinner, and is applicable to all the needs of man."
Christian Science Practitioners
Christian Science practitioners pray for healing for those who call upon them for help. These experienced men and women are also happy, simply to answer questions about the practical blessings that come through the study of Christian Science.

Join us for a FREE lecture by Josh Niles, CSB
Josh is a Christian Science Practitioner and Teacher
“Everyone has the right to feel God’s healing power and to be free from any limitations on health, happiness and well-being.”
Josh will talk about how harmony is actually a constant and consistent law of God and how Mary Baker Eddy's discovery of these divine laws, which have been in operation throughout all time, can be brought to bear in any circumstance through holy inspired prayer. Christ Jesus mapped the way for all mankind to better understand God and feel His undiminished love, which leads to harmony and healing. Josh will share examples of healing through Christian Science from his own life to help illustrate that everyone can experience the kind of harmony and healing that Jesus pointed to in his ministry.
Music prior to the talk will be provided by Christian Musician, Alex Cook.
Everyone is welcome!

The Week That Changed The World — an Easter talk by Bible scholar, Madelon Maupin
Watch the archived video of this special Easter talk.
Is a 2000+ year old story relevant to an age of nuclear threats and nation-state saber rattling? How did Christ Jesus challenge the prejudices of his time to forever alter the freedom of mankind? Christ Jesus declared, “I came not to send peace, but a sword” (Matt. 10:34). This man of unspeakable love that knew no gender, age, racial or ethnic biases was nonetheless ready to bring a sword to whatever would limit, imprison or undermine anyone. Our special Easter talk given by Madelon Maupin will delve into this remarkable story and its place in our lives today.

The Christian Science Monitor is an independent international news organization that delivers thoughtful, global coverage. We want to inspire people to think about what they've read long after they've left the page. To share what they've learned with others. And to do something that makes a difference.
In an era when the mainstream media has narrowed its focus, we're convinced readers yearn for the opposite. The Monitor's global approach is reflected in how founder Mary Baker Eddy described its object as "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind." Our aim is to embrace the human family, shedding light with the conviction that understanding the world's problems and possibilities moves us towards solutions.
Christian Science is more than theory — it's a practice that can deepen your relationship with God and change life for the better.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
