Truckee’s For Goodness Sake to host Christian Science healer and teacher

Marceil DeLacy

There are a number of Christian Scientists in Truckee as well as a church called the Christian Science Society next to Mountain Hardware. Here is what a few of them have to say about Christian Science.

and#8220;What impresses me most about Christian Science, is how it opens my thought to view myself and others with a fuller understanding of who we really are and why we are here! Through heartfelt prayer to God and study of the Bible and and#8216;Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures’ by Mary Baker Eddy, I find a direct connection to my true identity and how I should be viewing other people. Throughout my life I have experienced healings through this study from a back paralysis, unemployment and a difficult working relationship with a co-worker, of which I’m most grateful.and#8221; and#8212; Gary Abrahamian

and#8220;I first learned about Christian Science from a book I found in the Kings Beach library back in 1995. I eventually found the Christian Science textbook and#8216;Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures’ written by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer of Christian Science. It points me to spiritual laws which Jesus tells us about in the New Testament.

Through continuous and dedicated study and practice of Christian Science along with the Bible, I have experienced many physical healings, solutions to financial and relationship problems as well as being completely healed of depression. I feel that I live a very enriching and uplifting life which I attribute to my practice of Christian Science.and#8221; and#8212; Andy Hill

and#8220;I grew up in the Christian Science Sunday School, so Christian Science was always in my life. There came a time in high school when I questioned if this religion was what I really wanted. I realized the ideas and lessons I was taught always comforted me in times of need and healed me in times of sickness. Therefore, I made a conscious choice to study Christian Science more seriously. Learning about God’s nature and my relationship with God through studying the Bible and Science and Health with key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy has helped me with financial issues, employment for the family and finding homes when relocated. Severe headaches and depression were also healed, so I feel very grateful and blessed to have Christian Science in my life.and#8221; and#8212; Emily Hinkel
