Why not welcome the holiday season with a new appreciation for humility?
Mark McCurties, international speaker and practitioner of Christian Science healing, will present his talk, “Humility that ‘overcomes the world,’” on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. in meeting room B of the Northwest Library, located at 5600 NW 122nd Street in Oklahoma City. His talk focuses on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, and shows how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science.
The talk is free, open to the community, and sponsored by Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, Oklahoma City, who will provide free childcare for attendees.
“A central theme of Christ Jesus’ ministry was to teach and show that the power of God’s love can help us overcome the various injustices in the world,” McCurties said “Yet, for all the remarkable healing work that Jesus did, he always gave the credit to God. Based on Jesus’ example, we will define true humility, how it links us to God, and how it connects us with God’s healing laws. There is great need for healing in the world today, and living with more Christ-like humility can help us meet that demand.”
McCurties will share healings to explain why Christian Science is both Christian because it follows Christ Jesus, and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves. The practice is fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science church, Mary Baker Eddy.
McCurties will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, and how she came to understand, confirm and teach the healing method of Christ Jesus. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus’ demand, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (from the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).
Mark McCurties has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, daily helping people through this scientific approach to prayer. He travels from his home base in Michigan, to speak to audiences as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
