Beth Packer, C.S.

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 something of the past but is a present possibility. Healing examples include protection from an attack, healing of a medically diagnosed ‘incurable’ illness, and effects of a severe accident.

…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.

Beth Packer

As a young child, growing up in a Christian Science family, Beth 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.”

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.

Living in the Kingdom of Heaven Right Here and Now

The message is clear and simple. Heaven is within us, and not a place in the future. It is a mental and spiritual state without a single element of delay or waiting that is at hand as Christ Jesus taught. This lecture takes a look at how we can bring healing, restoration and regeneration to our lives by actively living moment by moment in the kingdom of harmony.

It shows how prayer and the expression of such attributes as mercy, justice and unselfishness can reveal this ever-present kingdom right in the midst of the most difficult situations. Proofs of healing help to develop these ideas and show that we can be eyewitness to divine Love’s all-inclusive government and control that is, as The Lord’s Prayer says, “on earth as it is in heaven.”

About the lecturer:

Jose de Dios Mata

José de Dios is originally from Spain, but has been living in the United States for a number of years. As a teenager, he felt a special interest in music and decided to study guitar, with an emphasis on flamenco. This led him to form his own group and perform in various venues.

Later, he worked for the government for a decade, the last five years of which were spent as a special agent in the Intelligence Services. In his personal life, he faced an enormous challenge in early 1979. A relative’s sudden illness, for which the doctors could find no cure, as well as his own almost complete loss of hearing due to a congenital lesion, which he was told would require immediate surgery or result in total deafness — and he could not continue in his position at work until he had surgery — forced him to seek a solution to these difficulties. He chose not to have surgery. After trying a series of different alternatives, in December of that year José de Dios was introduced to Christian Science by a doctor, his guitar student, who knew of his reluctance towards conventional medicine and encouraged him to explore this system of spiritual healing. Both situations were quickly and completely healed solely through reading the textbook of this religion, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

He soon realized that the spiritual understanding he had just achieved enabled him to heal others. After several years of proving the practical effect of these teachings in the healing of illness and other inharmonious situations of day-to-day life, he gave up his career in 1986 and decided to move to the United States to enter the public practice of Christian Science as his only profession.

A new view of God and its effect on well-being

Phillip Hockley, CS

When most people think about life-changing moments, they may not think of a lecture on Christian Science. That wasn’t why our speaker, Phillip Hockley, attended a lecture for the first time; he didn’t expect to walk out a new person. But Phillip found something in that lecture that was indeed life-transforming. Christian Science gave him a new view of God that he’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself. He also discovered that this loving God was not the source of his troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. His life began to improve quickly after that and he became a healthy man after many years of suffering.

There’s no question that I was jubilant about the way my life was being transformed. But what impressed me the most was finding out that these kinds of breakthroughs aren’t one-time, personal miracles. God’s love is available to everyone, and there’s even a textbook on Christian Science healing that explains the power of God’s love in our lives: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

What I’ve gone on to learn, and what I’ll share in my lecture, is that the perspective of God and reality that Christian Science opens up is one that offers freedom from whatever in our lives seems painful, debilitating, or limiting. I’ll talk about a 19th-century woman, Mary Baker Eddy, who, after a life-threatening injury, discovered this new view of God for herself and went on to explain her discovery and its Bible-based principles in her book Science and Health. And I’ll share how that discovery is still relevant to our lives today because of what it reveals about God’s great love for each of us and its powerful, life-transforming effects.

Experiencing Heaven Now

You are invited to attend this free lecture on Christian Science by Mary Bothwell, C.S.B., a Christian Science Practitioner and Teacher, and member of the Board of Lectureship.

We all yearn to find meaningful relationships, or a more lasting connection with peace, contentment, even health. In my lecture, I’ll discuss how anyone can become genuinely aware of God’s presence and experience heaven-harmony, health, and happiness-here and
now.

I’ll also share how the study of the Bible, and a book that explains the healing relevance of the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, can open up a new meaning of heaven to each of us. This heaven isn’t a place, but a tangible feeling of being enveloped in love and spirituality that comes from understanding more about God. We’ll
explore the new perspectives that come from this understanding of God-healing perspectives that can resolve all kinds of difficulties, and transform our lives for good.
