Moving Past Fear—To Healing

A talk for the public on Sunday, June 9, 2024 at 2:00 PM

Fear can seem inevitable—part of who we are. But understanding God's all-embracing love can overcome fear, reveal peace, and move life forward. A free, in-person talk will explore these ideas on Sunday afternoon, June 9, at 2:00 PM.

This talk will be given by Lisa Troseth, C.S.B., a Christian Science practitioner, Christian Science teacher, and member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Ms. Troseth lives in Rogers, Arkansas. Below is a short preview of what Ms. Troseth has to say.

We're open on Thanksgiving Day

For more than a century, Christian Scientists around the world have gathered with family, friends, and visitors for a special Thanksgiving sermon and for sharing accounts of healings. This year's meeting will be Thursday, November 28 at 10:30 AM and will last one hour. We hope you will join us! No collection will be taken.
