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

About this talk:
When most people think about life-changing moments, they may not think of a lecture on Christian Science. That wasn’t why I attended a lecture for the first time; I didn’t expect to walk out a new person. But I found something in that lecture that was indeed life-transforming. Christian Science gave me a new view of God that I’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself, divine Love that loved me fully. I also discovered that this loving God was not the source of my troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. My life began to improve quickly after that and I 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.

Are prayer and healing for you? Yes, even if you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you’re not even sure what you think about God, you can still pray and be healed. Because prayer and healing are natural to us. Your willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect — for anyone.
What is Christian Science? An approach to Christianity based on the idea that the divine truth and love which shone through Jesus’ life and works is timeless, universal, and understandable, and so can be experienced through healing in our lives today.
About our speaker
Experiencing first-hand the healing power of divine Love, God, is Nate’s favorite thing. It’s what makes him tick.
Nate studied perennial religion at Hampshire College where he was introduced to Christian Science healing. Although he was enamored with the academic exploration of spirituality, what he truly desired most was to practice spirituality in a tangible way — he wanted to experience God and heal others. “Without comparison, my greatest love, my greatest joy — my mission — is to transform lives and heal the sick through Christianly Scientific prayer.”
After traveling the world for a year and hiking extensively in the Himalayas, Nate came to Boston in 2008 to work for his church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist. Nate’s many hobbies includes adventuring in the outdoors, writing songs and cooking.

Lack of trust in what used to be reliable sources or entities is common today, so what can we confidently depend on?
Speaker Lesley Pitts says “Recognizing a loving, divine presence can bring the reliable stability and support needed for progress.”
