God’s eye view of you

Discover the relationship between prayer and healing and the universal truth that unifies.

Saturday, February 2, 11:00 AM

Fujiko Signs

Around the world people are looking for prayer that brings healing and peace to their lives.  International speaker, Fujiko Signs says, “In my own experience, an understanding of God brings healing and goodness into my life.”

Signs, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing, will be giving this lecture titled, “God’s-eye view of you!”

“During this lecture we will explore the relationship between prayer and healing and the universal truth that unifies,” says Signs.  “We will talk about how to understand God and how spirituality and childlikeness relate.”

The ideas shared in Signs’ lecture are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, including the spiritual sense of the Lord’s Prayer.

Fujiko Signs worked as a market research consultant for computer manufacturing companies and taught Japanese language and literature at community colleges and universities across the United States.  In her mid-thirties, Fujiko fell ill and sought healing through different treatments, but none of them gave her a lasting cure.  As soon as she started reading about Christian Science, a prayer-based system of healing, she was relieved from various stress and limitations and realized that she no longer suffered from the symptoms that had limited her before.  Now a full-time practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing, Signs speaks internationally as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

This lecture is sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Irving, TX.

Bible Translations Workshop

Finding innocence that is power, not vulnerability

Sunday, January 20, at 2:00 PM
First Church of Christ, Scientist
1321 W. Avenue F
Garland, TX 75040

Brian G. Pennix, Christian Science Practitioner and Teacher

We don’t have to wait to experience the Love that heals.

Come 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.

And we have the ability to bring freedom and goodness to others, even those that would victimize.

All are welcome to this free talk! Feel free to invite a friend.

How to Make Change for the Better

Life doesn’t have to feel like it’s caving in. We can build on a new basis: life rooted in an all-good God.

Here’s what Janet Hegarty has to say about this talk:

“I may not be an architect, but I know the value of a strong foundation. My life improved when I began building on new views of myself and my identity, which sprang from a better concept of God than I’d had before. This better concept of God brought healing changes to my life in a way that was deep and lasting.

“Building this new foundation began when my mother-in-law introduced me to Christian Science. As I explored the ideas in the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, I began to get a very different view of God. Never before had I encountered the idea that God is not merely sometimes good or just a little bit good, but all good, only good, always. To think of God as pure goodness, and to discover that this same all-good God was the source of what I am and what everyone is without exception, was, to me, a new and life-changing way to think about existence.

“These new ideas showed me the power of God, divine goodness, at work in all of our lives–providing solutions to challenges such as sickness, dishonesty, and career setbacks, which often seem like they can shake our foundation and connection to what’s good. This had a practical effect in my own life, bringing a quick healing of a long-standing food allergy. And, as time has gone on, this foundational understanding of God as pure good has transformed my life in many ways, including the healing of a serious illness and the restoration of my career.

“I invite you to join me in discovering how you can establish your own strong foundation and experience the life-changing effects of building on this solid basis for yourself and the world.”
