John Adams
John Adams, CSB
Adams originally moved to New York City from the Midwest to pursue an acting career, studying with Lee Strasberg and Herbert Berghoff. He was healed of a serious drug habit through his study of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. This healing changed his life, bringing renewed commitment to his spiritual journey. Raising a family, Adams owned a total of nine flower stores in New York City. He sold his businesses, and in 1985 took up the full-time work as a practitioner of Christian Science healing. Adams speaks on the power of prayer to heal as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. He travels from his home in New York City.

The Christly quality of unselfishness is a foundation one in the practice of Christ-healing. It speaks of the naturalness of unselfishness: the magnitude of God’s love for creation overflows in us so that we are not loving others with a personal sense of love but loving with the love of God. God gives us the ability to think beyond ourselves even when we are facing life-threatening situations.
