Healing Through Coming To ChristSue A. Spotts wrote an article from August 1992 that was recently shared on the Christian Science Journal website titled, Healing through coming to Christ. The article focuses on our connection with Christ:

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to have met Christ Jesus or to have been able to go to him for healing?

How would we approach this holiest of all men, the Son of God? Tentatively perhaps, not knowing quite what to expect—unsure of what might be required of us by the gospel he was proclaiming. Or we might see ourselves as coming to the Master with a bright sense of hope that not only would our bodies be restored but our thinking and our lives would also be touched by his healing prayer. Still others of us might imagine what unutterable humility we would feel in the presence of his spirituality, what a distance we would sense between our own meager expression of goodness and the sheer radiance of his light and love…

Maryann McKay published an article on the Christian Science Monitor website today about a healing during a Wednesday night church service. She writes:

I was traveling for work and was scheduled to be on the road for nine weeks straight with almost no time off. The strenuous schedule left little time for rest. A month in, I was exhausted and coughing a great deal. Swallowing and speaking were very painful. I prayed earnestly about this as I had learned to do in Christian Science, but while there was improvement, the symptoms continued. I struggled to keep up with the work and travel. I felt alone, separated from God, and in need of spiritual inspiration, reassurance, and, most of all, healing…

Rowanne Karapogosian shared an article this week on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Singer healed of lost voice. The article focuses on  God’s Love:

I have been a student of Christian Science my whole life, and I have had countless healings through my understanding of Christian Science and through the prayers of Christian Science practitioners.

I received one early proof of God’s love for His children when I was in tenth grade. I was a member of my high school’s madrigal singers choir, and we received an invitation for two of our singers to audition for a large, semiprofessional performance group. Three of us raised our hands: a senior, a junior, and a sophomore—me. Our teacher said that the two oldest students could audition and that only if the director had time to take a third, could I audition.

Moments after feeling some symptoms of a heart attack and asking a friend to a pray with me, an overwhelming feeling of God’s love washed over me. It relieved the symptoms and also showed me something about what it means to be innocent.

I was in college at the time and had gotten a little off track both in my studies and in some life choices. On top of that I felt resentment over long-term maltreatment by a family member, and heartbroken after a recent breakup with my girlfriend. That overwhelming feeling of love ultimately helped uplift all these areas of my life as well as bring permanent relief from those physical symptoms.

Through my study of Christian Science, I’ve come to see that God is Love itself, which empowers us with God-derived innocence. This innocence is based on God’s unconditional love; it indicates that we’re safe depending on divine Love as our source, and it means we can have an undoubting expectation of good. The very substance of our being is pure and perfect, like our Maker, and cannot change. Our innate innocence means we always deserve to be free from pain, both mental and physical, as I experienced in college and since. And we have the ability to bring freedom and goodness to others, even those that would victimize.

Christian Science has showed me how Christ Jesus’ life illustrated this God-given power, which has nothing to do with the naiveté, vulnerability, or helplessness that society often associates with innocence. I’ve seen that victims are not beyond help and comfort and that victimizers can be reformed. We don’t have to wait to experience the Love that heals.

Joshua Niles

Please join us for a free lecture by Josh Niles, CSB, titled “The law of harmony and Christian Science healing” on Saturday November 10th at 10:00 AM. This lecture will take place at:

Celebration Garden at the  McGovern Centennial Gardens
1500 Hermann Dr
Houston, TX 77004

Josh is a Christian Science Practitioner and Teacher.  He will talk about how harmony is actually a constant and consistent law of God and how Mary Baker Eddy’s discovery of these divine laws, which have been in operation throughout all time, can be brought to bear in any circumstance through holy inspired prayer. Christ Jesus mapped the way for all mankind to better understand God and feel His undiminished love, which leads to harmony and healing. Josh will share examples of healing through Christian Science from his own life to help illustrate that everyone can experience the kind of harmony and healing that Jesus pointed to  in his ministry.

This lecture is sponsored by Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, Houston.

Christian Science Monitor – To one person, you may be the world

To one person, you may be the worldMark Swinney published an article on the Christian Science Monitor website exploring the value of selflessness that’s not simply about doing good deeds but about letting God’s love impel our actions. The article goes on to state:

An active willingness to express qualities such as thoughtfulness, gentleness, forgiveness, and steadfastness helps us recognize our true nature as God’s children, which inevitably translates into helping, and even healing, others, and so showing how much we care.

There is nothing wrong with being famous. But those who make the most difference in the lives of others are not necessarily the ones with the most accolades but the ones who take the time to love. With all of the people we meet, we can strive to follow Jesus’ example and be willing to be open to opportunities to let God’s love and care shine through us, so that we can be the “one person” that means “the world” to someone in need today. Doing so matters more than we could ever imagine. It helps others (and ourselves!) know and feel the tender, comforting presence of the divine Love that heals.
