Mark McCurties, CS

Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve had a deep love for the Bible. When I read about men and women in the Bible overcoming hatred, famine, war, physical disease, and other hardships, their triumphs inspired me. It didn’t matter what the odds were, or what conditions they faced, individuals in the Bible seemed to flourish in adversity based on one common theme, their deep love for God.
Growing up in a Christian Science household, there was another book I loved to read daily: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures written by Mary Baker Eddy. The very purpose of her book is to help unlock and reveal the deeper divine meaning and inspiration of the Bible. Together these two books point to the practical healing and saving power of God and its present availability for all mankind. I knew that someday I wanted to share that healing message with the world.
As I grew into adulthood, experiences in the field of education as a summer camp director, outdoor educator, athletics coach, and resident counselor, all helped to develop my understanding and practice of Christian Science. While working with young people, I had multiple opportunities to witness God’s healing power. These examples proved to me that the healing power of the Christ is just as alive and relevant today as for the men and women of the Bible. In 2010, with a desire to focus solely on healing through prayer, I went into the full-time public practice of Christian Science.

Melanie Wahlberg

When we feel stuck, we naturally want answers. It would be reassuring to feel supported instead of alone in our efforts to progress. In this talk, I discuss what I’ve found helpful from my practice of Christian Science healing: a way to experience God as an active presence of good in our lives, and a reliable source of fresh ideas that bring about inspired solutions.   

Ideas from God, rooted in the spirituality that makes up our true nature, stir something new in our consciousness. They uplift our outlook — sometimes before we even realize — in ways that change our lives and our health for the better. 

During the lecture, I refer to God as divine Love or Mind, rather than as a superhuman figure making arbitrary decisions about our lives. This divine Mind is the infinite, loving source of all good, timeless ideas. God’s thoughts remind us of our spiritual identity, show us our potential, and enable us to heal and to be healed.

But how do we find these healing ideas consistently?  We’ll look at the teachings of Christ Jesus, our best and most practical example. And we’ll delve into Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, as the explanation of Christian Science healing based on Christ Jesus’ life. I’ll give examples of how this healing approach has transformed lives, including a mother and her infant daughter who experienced physical healing. The mother said, “It felt like the ideas themselves did the work.”
