Talks that change lives

“The how, why and wonder of spiritual healing” with Beth Packer, CS

Find out how and why spiritual healing is such a powerful force for good. Beth shares how her father was healed through prayer of a diagnosed fatal illness that left him close to death. This talk explores the phenomena of spiritual healing as recorded throughout the Bible — healing that for centuries has allowed people to live their lives with dominion and not be victims to their circumstances. Hear present-day examples, showing that such healing is not something of the past, but is a present possibility — an accessible transforming power for good in our lives today. Examples include protection from an attack, healing of a medically diagnosed ‘incurable’ illness, and effects of contagion.

In her presentation, followed by open Q&A, Michelle discusses some essentials of Christian Science healing and its broader contribution to solving individual and societal problems today.

“Why everyone is needed (and what that means)” with James Shepherd, CS

“God’s love is for everyone, and a Christian Science lecture is a perfect setting to learn about God’s love and the healing that it brings. I’ve seen the healing effects of God’s love since I was a youngster, romping through the woods around our home with my three brothers. We had our share of scrapes and bruises which were quickly healed through prayer. We didn’t get sick often, but when we did, we relied on Christian Science for quick healings.” James Shepherd is a Christian Science practitioner and lecturer based in Oregon, USA.

“Take hold of your divine freedom” with Heike Arneth, CSB

“I see the many tough situations that people and nations are faced with. Christian Science can help with all of these; and yet it is not just a system of healing and problem-solving. It is much more than this. Among other things, it explains the spiritual principles that are the basis of all being.”

This 30-minute talk was sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Claygate and Esher, and was delivered as part of “Mini Focus 2020”, a summit held in the UK for youth interested in Christian Science.
