Lecture: The Science of Christianity

Lecture December 13
The Science of Christianity

Science and Christianity
Explore the connection!
 
Can there really be a science to Christianity?  Are there really spiritual laws that can be proven reliably?  International speaker, Mary Alice Rose, says, “Christian Science is rooted in the scientific method.  I’ve witnessed examples in my own life and that of others illustrating how spiritual laws can be put into practice.”

Rose will present a talk titled, “The Science of Christianity” on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 7:30pm at the Museum of Biblical Art 7500 Park Lane, Dallas, TX 75225.  

“In my talk I will draw parallels between how physical scientists approach the subjects they study and how individuals approach the study of Christian Science,” says Rose.  “One of the most fundamental laws in the practice of Christian Science comes from the book of First John in the Bible: ‘God is love.’  That is a powerful law that has healed me physically and mentally.  I’ll share examples illustrating that law in action.”

Rose’s ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

Rose’s interest in science and technology led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physical science.  Her work ranged from a meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory to a manager developing the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope.  As interesting as her career was, Rose found that she wanted more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor: exploring her relationship with God.  So, in 2002, she made the transition from manager, engineer, and earth scientist to the full-time ministry as a Christian Science practitioner.  She is now an authorized teacher of this Science and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Rose travels from her home in Brookeville, Maryland.
