Let the energy of Spirit fill the Church
Article by Scott Preller
From the March 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal
Foundation for Spiritual Healing
The Bible is the basis of Christian Science and the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Scientists study the Bible and work to apply the lessons learned from Scripture in their daily lives. The King James Version is the most widely used translation and is quoted more than 800 times in Science and Health.
Science and Health
In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus. From the first chapter, "Prayer," to her exegesis of Genesis and Revelation, to a Glossary of terms, the author invites readers to deeply consider the allness of God, the perfection of man as God's spiritual creation, and how an understanding of these facts brings healing — just as they did in Biblical times. As explained in her book Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, (p. 259) "Truth is the power of God which heals the sick and the sinner, and is applicable to all the needs of man."
Christian Science Practitioners
Christian Science practitioners pray for healing for those who call upon them for help. These experienced men and women are also happy, simply to answer questions about the practical blessings that come through the study of Christian Science.

The question and answer session will not be live streamed.
Spiritual discovery: how you can better the world
An online webinar with Tom McElroy

At a time when many people are thinking about how to make change in the world for the better, genuine spirituality has a valuable and unique contribution to make. It’s not about joining a club, or blind faith, but discovering new perspectives of universal Truth and Love, God, that embrace everyone, and bring to light reliable healing solutions even where it might seem like there are none.
You can listen to weekly podcasts from the Christian Science Sentinel and monthly podcast from The Christian Science Journal on JSH Audio.
The Christian Science Monitor is an independent international news organization that delivers thoughtful, global coverage. We want to inspire people to think about what they've read long after they've left the page. To share what they've learned with others. And to do something that makes a difference.
In an era when the mainstream media has narrowed its focus, we're convinced readers yearn for the opposite. The Monitor's global approach is reflected in how founder Mary Baker Eddy described its object as "To injure no man, but to bless all mankind." Our aim is to embrace the human family, shedding light with the conviction that understanding the world's problems and possibilities moves us towards solutions.
Christian Science is more than theory — it's a practice that can deepen your relationship with God and change life for the better.
Every Monday, listen to a new episode of Sentinel Watch, a weekly podcast from the Christian Science Sentinel. Tune in to hear a question and answer on a timely topic or a report of healing in the words of the individual who experienced it.
Get your spiritual lift for the day! Your Daily Lift is a free Monday thru Friday audio podcast series.
On the last Friday of every month, listen to Record of Truth, a new podcast from The Christian Science Journal. Each month you'll hear one or more guests discuss an important global topic from a spiritual perspective.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
