Free Thanksgiving Bible Lesson
The weekly Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly offer ideas and inspiration that comfort, heal, and lead to a deeper understanding of God’s goodness. In the Thanksgiving Lesson, we discover God as the source of all good and see how natural it is to experience and rejoice in His daily gifts of mercy, grace, and abundance. You're invited to dive in, explore, study, and share this special message of love with family, friends, and neighbors.
Foundation for Christian 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 spiritual 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.
Christian Science Practitioners
Christian Science practitioners pray for healing for those who call upon them for help. These experienced men and women are available to help anyone anytime, anywhere. They are also happy, simply to answer questions about the practical blessings that come through the study of Christian Science.

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.
Parliament of the World Religions will be held in Toronto November 1-7, 2018, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. More than 10,000 people will participate in the weeklong conference. The Parliament will be the world's largest interfaith gathering, offering the global religious and spiritual communities—and their leaders—a forum to discuss and explore peace, diversity, and sustainability in the context of interreligious understanding and cooperation.
The topic for the Parliament this year is: The Promise of Inclusion, the Power of Love: Pursuing Global Understanding, Reconciliation and Change. More than 500 programs are scheduled throughout the seven days, including lectures, dialogues, workshops, symposia, performances, and exhibits. Working in conjunction with The Mother Church and the Manager’s office, Wendy Margolese, (COP for Ontario) is chairing the Organizing Committee for Christian Science at the Parliament.

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.
