Sharingimg_1061 Experiences of Healing

Every Wednesday at 7:30 PM we hold a testimony meeting to listen to readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and then members of the congregation share experiences of how they’ve been healed through Christian Science.

We’d love to have you join us.

You can also listen to people share their experiences of healing here.

Articles to Encourage and Inspire

Out of the darkness of addiction Drugs were my solution for everything. For every kind of feeling, whether I was happy or sad, I would take something. It was a back-and-forth kind of thing—I would stop for a while, then start back up again. In addition, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and was continually in and out of treatment centers.”

img_1051 Healed of smoking addiction “That night, I was reading a [Christian Science] Sentinel and smoking in bed. As I came to the end of an article, and to a cigarette as well, I took one final puff and knew with all my heart that this would be the last time I’d ever smoke. And this proved to be true.”

Version 2

Loosed from the grip of alcohol and drugs “I went from believing that alcohol and drugs were necessary to make life bearable, to understanding God, who is Life itself, is, as Science and Health explains, ‘the centre and circumference’ of my very being.”

A prayerful response to #stopsuicide “This week [September 9, 2016] people have rallied around national suicide prevention, many using the #StopSuicide hashtag on social media. My daughter’s English Literature class also addressed the topic of suicide this week when they analyzed Langston Hughes’s poem, “Suicide’s Note.” It’s a succinct poem, just three condensed lines, but packed with meaning: The calm, / Cool face of the river / Asked me for a kiss.”

You can find more articles at our Reading Room at 36 Main Street in downtown Andover.
