Abundance of God’s Love and Care brings Healing during the Holidays

If we are suffering financial lack, fragmented lives, depression, loneliness, illness or injury, listening for angel messages can bring healing.

Hear some recent examples of people who found healing from these problems through prayer. These verified healings have been shared in the publications titled the Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal. Read or listen to the testimonies of these healings below.

Peace and Christmas

Human experience may seem very dark with war, severe weather, and refugee crises spreading uncertainty, waste and loss. But Christmas is here to remind us that the season of spiritual light is with us, the proclaiming light which appeared to the shepherds, the guiding light of the star, the light which rests in the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, the light which through the succeeding centuries has been directing its true followers to heart’s peace and heaven’s joy.

heloisa-rivasHumankind needs this Christmas light desperately, for the gloom of material existence is dense indeed. It is a gift, freely offered to all who desire to know its glory that shines through the Scriptures. Listen to this talk by Christian Science Practitioner, Teacher and Public Speaker Heloisa Gelber Rivas as she relates the true meaning of Christmas – that impartation of peace with the coming of the Christ – at the birth of Jesus, which brings lasting peace beyond winter or any season.  Listen…

Mending the Fences within Family

At family holidays we may want to avoid and walk away from family discord and prejudices. But according to the Bible we can’t.

Home is where hearts meet together, share holiday meaning, and maintain an atmosphere of love. We are never without a sense of home in the loving care of God. Listen to Christian Science Practitioner, Public Speaker and Teacher Marian English answer questions and share ideas about how to heal family discord and restore a sense of family.  Listen…

A Spiritual Defense Against Bullying

It is our right to be free from harassment and torment and from being intimidated into doing something we do not want to do.
