The Kingdom of Heaven is Within Us? 

Yes, we can feel the peace and safety of God’s presence anytime, anywhere.

REMINDER: “Experiencing heaven now,” a free talk by practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, Mary Bothwell will be this Sunday, April 14, 2024.

The talk focuses on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, and shows how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science. The talk is free, open to the community, and hosted by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Burien, Washington.

WHY: “In spite of the hyper-connectedness of social media and technology, we live in an era in which many are feeling this same disconnect,” says Mrs. Bothwell. “We all yearn to find meaningful relationships, or a more lasting connection with peace, contentment, even health. In my lecture, I’ll discuss how anyone can become genuinely aware of God’s presence and experience heaven–harmony, health, and happiness–here and now.”

Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Mrs. Bothwell will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, and how anyone 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.

Mrs. Bothwell will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, and how Mrs. Eddy came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Mrs. 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).
