Breaking news: Freedom is Ours Now

There are times when we all yearn for a greater sense of freedom–in finances, or with an illness, a career, or relationships. Christ Jesus, the Master Christian, gave us a new, higher view of God and man that brings a deep and lasting freedom to all. All things are possible to God; no one is left out.

Patty Woodard

All are welcome to come and hear Patty Woodard talk about this on:

Saturday, February 25, at 11:00 AM
First Church of Christ, Scientist
2250 W. Pioneer Dr.
Irving, TX 75061

Patty discovered Christian Science as an adolescent and soon thereafter experienced the complete healing of a broken arm through Christian Science treatment. She earned a Master of Arts in Teaching and later became a teacher naturalist at an Audubon Center. She has lived in six states in the U.S. and twice in São Paulo, Brazil, where she became fluent in Portuguese and helped start an award-winning social program for Brazillian women.

Underlying all these experiences was the desire to bring healing to mankind, to show each individual their God-given freedom, their real heritage, their right to happiness and health, and their inherent ability to feel God’s love.

Today, Patty lives in Dallas, Texas where she is active in Prison Ministry along with her healing practice, and she is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

This lecture is sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Irving. For more information, call 972-253-7202 or visit www.ChristianScienceIrving.com. Here is a flyer.
