Finding joy, health, hope for all
Join us for a free online talk — Tuesday June 14, 7:30 pm MST
Sometimes we can feel that joy seems hard to find — and seems even harder to keep! But what if joy is really fundamental to our nature? What if it is something all of us have permanently?
Christian Science lecturer Steve Salt, CSB, says, "What if we could find the good in life for which our hearts yearn is invulnerable to surrounding events, that it's never 'on the line' for any reason, actually? If there was a way to trust that, and to prove it, that would give us a compelling reason to have hope. Even a reason for unshakeable joy. Christian Science explains the incredible good endowed on us by God — a good all of us deserve and can even expect — all the time."
Mr. Salt will share how he was healed of mental darkness, and subsequently regained his sense of joy. Through praying with ideas from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, he was transformed — uplifted by a better understanding of joy as a quality of an all-present, all loving God.
He will also share other healings, thoughts on identity, prayer, and what Jesus taught about joy. And he'll describe Mary Baker Eddy's life. She founded Christian Science, wrote Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and modeled a prayerful approach to life, through good happenings and bad, health and sickness, security and poverty, safety and homelessness — prevailing over all of these obstacles, and helping many others along the way.
Steve Salt, CSB
I was led to the full-time, public practice of Christian Science where I could apply its teachings to daily experiences and secure a stable sense of well-being for those in need of prayerful support.
I have enjoyed fulfilling the duties of Christian Science Committee on Publication for Ohio for 15 years. This has allowed me to connect with editors, reporters, and government officials at the local, state, and national levels, ensuring the availability of accurate information about Christian Science. I have regularly met with ecumenical and interfaith leaders, given talks with interfaith groups and comparative religion classes. I have written for national websites, blogs, newspapers, and magazines in this capacity.

Annual Meeting 2022 - This year's theme
"One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the Scripture, "Love thy neighbor as thyself;" annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry, - whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed."
Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 340

What is Christian Science?
Christian Science is more than theory — it's a practice that can deepen your relationship with God and change life for the better. In Christian Science, God is understood to be infinite Love, and so invariably good that a clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal, redeem, and restore anyone.

Can Christianity be scientific? Science is all about understanding and demonstration. Christianity is of the heart. Can these two views be in harmony with each other? We invite you to read a few articles that show how naturally Christianity and Science go together and the blessings that this connection can bring. Click here to read the current prayer focus.
Is Christian Science the same as Scientology? The similarities in name can cause some confusion, but the two are, in fact, entirely different religions with very little in common and are not connected in any way. Learn more
The Bible from Genesis to Revelation, is the foundation for the theology and practice of Christian Science and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy.
Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) was a lifelong student of the Bible. It became clear to her that spiritual healing was based on divine laws of God, Spirit, and that these laws could be applied by anyone to heal human suffering and sin. Her primary work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, contains the full explanation of Christian Science and its biblical foundation of spiritual healing. Mary Baker Eddy went on to establish the Church of Christ, Scientist, as a Christian denomination and worldwide movement of spiritual healers.
