Learn how spiritual perception brings healing at Christian Science talk Oct. 5.
Alex Fischer, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will present his talk, "How Spiritual Perception Brings Healing" on Thursday, Oct. 5.
It will begin at 7 p.m. in the Huntley Room at the St. Charles Library, 1 S. Sixth Ave.
The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus' life and teachings, showing how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science.
The talk, which is free and open to the community, is sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist in Geneva and the Christian Science Society in Aurora.
"We are not stuck!" Fischer said. "Understanding more clearly our relationship with God, infinite good, ends fear and leads the way forward."
Sharing examples of healing from his own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Fischer 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.
Fischer also will touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, who 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, experiencing healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.
Fischer has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. He travels from his home base in the southwest of France to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
