NEVER ALONE: HOW SPIRITUAL IDEAS WORK IN US
Melanie Wahlberg, CS — It’s easy to feel alone or unsupported in our efforts to overcome difficult and trying circumstances. It would be so reassuring to know how to get through it all! In this talk, I discuss what I found helpful in my practice of Christian Science healing: that God’s powerful, loving ideas care for us every moment, wiping away fear. We feel the presence of God’s ideas in tangible ways, ways that move and change our thinking, bring joyful inspiration, and reveal practical solutions. I call this healing.
During the lecture, I explore God’s nature as Spirit, Love, and Mind, rather than as a man-like figure making arbitrary decisions about our lives. This divine Mind is the one source of all good and true ideas. So God’s thoughts remind us of our spiritual nature, guide us to express more love, and show us our divine intelligence.
I talk about Christ Jesus’ teachings in the Bible as being the best example of how to heal by listening to these ideas. And I delve into Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, as the explanation of Christian Science healing based on Christ Jesus’ life. I give examples of how this healing approach has transformed lives, including a mother and her infant daughter who experienced physical healing. The mother said, “It felt like the ideas themselves did the work.”
