Live Webinar Event: Demystifying Spiritual Healing

Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

200430 Beth Lecture

 

Demystifying Spiritual Healing

Thursday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. CDT

In ‘Demystifying Spiritual Healing,’ we discover where genuine security in our lives really comes from. There is a divine Principle underlying our lives that, when relied on, consistently brings peace and goodness. By looking to God, Spirit, instead of materiality, the people in the Bible found reliable peace, healing and solutions to their everyday needs. The discovery of the Science of Christ, by Mary Baker Eddy, shows how we can experience this same peace, security and healing in our lives.

Here is the link to pre-register: Web Lecture Registration

Also, join our friends at First Church of Christ, Scientist in Richardson for another web lecture: The How and Why and Wonder of Spiritual Healing

Saturday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m. CDT

This lecture explores the phenomena of spiritual healing as recorded throughout the Bible. Such healing had for centuries allowed people to live their lives with dominion and not be victims to their circumstances. The lecture gives present-day examples to prove that such healing is not something of the past but is a present possibility. Healing examples include protection from an attack, healing of a medically diagnosed ‘incurable’ illness, and effects of a severe accident.

We look forward to enjoying the web lectures with you!

200216 Philip Hockley Lecture

When most people think about life-changing moments, they may not think of a lecture on Christian Science. That wasn’t why our speaker, Phillip Hockley, attended a lecture for the first time; he didn’t expect to walk out a new person. But Phillip found something in that lecture that was indeed life-transforming.

Christian Science gave him a new view of God that he’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself. He also discovered that this loving God was not the source of his troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. His life began to improve quickly after that, and he became a healthy man after many years of suffering.

When: Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 2 p.m.
Come at 1:30 p.m. to hear music by Third Church organist Chris Crook

Where: Third Church of Christ, Scientist, 4419 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219
