Bible Translations Workshop

First came conversations, then writing, then translating! Have you ever thought about how the English Bible came to be what we have today? A day-long workshop is coming to this area on January 26 that will explain much about that document’s journey into our hands in the present.

Saturday, January 26 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

First Church of Christ, Scientist
7318 N. E. Loop 820

Also included will be a fascinating presentation about the early days of the Christian Science movement with pictures, documents, and memorabilia—all contributing to our understanding of how things were then. This can give us a great perspective on our own understanding of the movement today.

How to Make Change for the Better by Janet Hegarty, a lecture on 2 dates

How to Make Change for the Better

Effective life change… deal with structural issues.

The house looked perfect, newly remodeled from top to bottom. But one photo showed a bulging exterior wall. And the real estate listing confirmed “certain structural issues” had not been addressed during the remodel.

“This example can be a bit of a metaphor for our lives,” says practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker Janet Hegarty. “Permanent, substantive change in our lives often needs more than a new look, a different job, or even a pill. To find lasting peace and even physical healing, we have to go deeper than just managing surface symptoms.”

Hegarty continues, “Like a building needs a strong foundation, we can find a secure life foundation by discovering the unfailing source of our being. This source is the one, all-good God–not an unpredictable man in the sky who arbitrarily blesses some and condemns others, but Life and Love itself, the very Principle of everything real and good.”

Hegarty will give a talk exploring this fresh perspective of God titled, “How to make change for the better,” on both January 12th and 13th.  Her ideas come from the Bible and are practiced in a prayer-based method of healing called Christian Science. Christian Science is fully explained in the book, which Hegarty will reference, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the movement’s founder, Mary Baker Eddy. Hegarty will also share her own experiences that illustrate effective change, like being cured of an allergy and recovering from a sudden career derailment.

Before becoming a Christian Science practitioner, Janet Hegarty had a career producing original music for theatre and film. Though finding success, she felt an underlying sense of fear for her health and uncertainty about the future. The new concepts about God found in Christian Science moved her to a feeling of fulfillment and security. More than a superficial change in attitude, Hegarty felt the life-changing power of God’s goodness. Today she helps others find this kind of healing too, and travels from her home base of St. Louis, MO, to talk with audiences as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
