International speaker and Christian Science healer, Beth Packer, will join us from Berry, New South Wales, Australia, to present this online lecture.
Thursday, September 24, at 7:00 PM
Pre-register at: https://www.csrichardson.org/bethpacker
This lecture explores the phenomena of spiritual healing as recorded throughout the Bible. Such healing had for centuries allowed people to live their lives with dominion and not be victims to their circumstances. The lecture gives present-day examples to prove that such healing is not just something of the past but is also a present possibility. Healing examples include protection from an attack, healing of a medically diagnosed ‘incurable’ illness, and effects of a severe accident.
About Beth Packer
In her capacity as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, Beth has been invited to lecture around the world, talking with audiences in such diverse situations as the hallowed halls of London to the inmates in provincial prisons in Africa and Asia. All receive the same message of divine love and healing.
But it is through her practice of Christian Science healing that the words and ideas she shares in her talks are proven true. Beth says, “that if an idea is true, it is universal, impersonal and provable. Spiritual healing as recorded in the Bible is as available today as it was then. And the understanding Christian Science brings to us all, makes that healing accessible to everyone, everywhere, always to bring help and healing to our daily life.”
As a young child, growing up in a Christian Science family, she saw healing as a normal part of life.
“Mum used to heal the cats and dogs and kids, whoever needed help, so we never thought of Christian healing as an unusual phenomena. It was just a sign that God loved us. From those early experiences came a deep wish that one day, I, too, would be able to help those around me know that love we had felt as children.”Beth Packer, CS
After becoming an award-winning artist and mother of two girls, she and her own family moved overseas to live in the Middle East for a while, returning home to Australia to start a successful retail business and also become involved in many community welfare projects. Finally in 2005, she was accepted into the worldwide Journal of Christian Science practitioners, entering the full-time healing practice.
“It was those years of putting into practice the truths that I’d grown up with, of healing through prayer the difficulties that can arise in family and public life, that really prepared me to be able to be of real use to those around me. And now also being able to share the precious message of healing through lecturing, is a humbling, heartening, joyous privilege, as well as such an amazing adventure.Beth Packer, CS
