CAMDEN — “Humility that ‘overcomes the world,’” a talk by practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, Mark McCurties, will focus on universal healing precepts found in the 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 is free, open to the community, and sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist in Camden.
“A central theme of Christ Jesus’ ministry was to teach and show that the power of God’s love can help us overcome the various injustices in the world,” McCurties says. “Yet, for all the remarkable healing work that Jesus did, he always gave the credit to God. Examining Jesus’ example, we will define true humility, how it links us to God, and with God’s healing laws. There is great need for healing in the world today; living with more Christ-like humility can help us to meet that demand.”
Sharing examples of healing from his own life and professional practice of Christian Science, McCurties will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves. The practice is 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.
McCurties will also 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” (from the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).
For over 150 years, people around the world have also worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, with healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.
WHEN: Tuesday, June 28 at 7:30 p.m.
WHERE: First Church of Christ, Scientist, 1 Central St. Camden
WHO: Mark McCurties has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, daily helping people through this scientific approach to prayer. He travels from his home base in Michigan, to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
