  • Prayer That Heals
    Saturday, October 4
    2:00 PM
    Do you seek healing in your life? Do you believe prayer can help? Evan Mehlenbacher says, "Anyone can learn how to solve problems and cure suffering through prayer. It's not as hard and mysterious to find divine help as it sometimes seems." Mehlenbacher, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing, will explain powerful spiritual truths that set mind and body free of suffering, pain and disease. Learn to pray effectively, feel close to God, and see change for the better happen in your life!

  • Walking the walk: How to live the love Jesus taught
    Saturday, October 25
    2:00 PM
    Jesus' last instructions were simple: "Love one another, as I have loved you." So why is it so hard to put Jesus' teachings into practice? Why do we judge ourselves and others too harshly? What does it take to love your enemies and to forgive those who have hurt you? These questions will be explored in this talk by international speaker Chet Manchester.

  • Mid-week Spiritual Break
    Wednesdays and Thursdays, 2pm
    Looking for an oasis in the midst of an active week? Try these refreshing ideas to boost your spiritual mercury level.
    Every Wednesday, we log on the computer to join the online congregation of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston: it consists of readings specially compiled for the day, as well as testimonies submitted by listeners. These readings are from the Christian Science pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. An organ prelude, hymns, and postlude are included. Testimonies of healing and other comments about Christian Science are submitted by listeners via email and are read live by two testimony readers.

    Ever grappled with how to get through a particularly challenging time, how to find employment, repair a relationship, or find peace in time of stress? You may gain fresh inspiration to meet such challenges from the spiritual solution-based thinking expressed in video offerings we show each Thursday afternoon.
