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.
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.
