THE KIND OF NEWS THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Sources of good news can be hard to find these days. Reading the headlines might make us want to curl up with cute animal videos online to cope! So where can we turn for the news that doesn’t shy away from problems, but lifts our view to help us make permanent progress?
“What we’re looking for,” says Patricia, “is a view that uplifts our thoughts, changing our perspective to one that makes a difference for the better, that heals. To me, this is what Christian Science is about: finding a spiritual perspective of God that reveals the goodness, wellness, and freedom flowing from God every day, helping those take tangible and reliable shape in our lives and the lives of others. That’s the ultimate good news!”
Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Patricia will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.
Patricia will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, and how she came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father” (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).
For over 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, with healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.
Patricia Woodard has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. She travels from her home base in Dallas, Texas, to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
