Public talks by members of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship explore these questions and bring the healing message of Christian Science to all kinds of audiences.

Centered on the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science lectures explain the spiritual laws behind Christ Jesus' works of physical and mental healing. They explore life-transforming ideas in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Lectures also show the practicality of these teachings by sharing healings of individual, community, and global problems happening today.

These in-person and online talks are given by a diverse group of Christian Science lecturers that serves as a speakers’ bureau for The First Church of Christ, Scientist. From a variety of countries, backgrounds, ethnic and language groups, all are experienced practitioners of Christian Science healing. Regardless of your current religious affiliation (or no affiliation at all), talks like the ones on this page can help you explore how to experience more of God’s healing power in your life by understanding the spiritual truths taught in the Bible and explained today through Christian Science.

Spiritual discovery: How you can better the world

[90 min ENG]


In October 2018, the Mary Baker Eddy Library opened a new exhibit called "Pathways to Progress: 1968 to Today" which explores the seismic shifts that were hitting the scene in 1968 and the significant improvements that have taken place over the past 50 years, as well as the difficulties that remain and the way those issues are being challenged today.

In conjunction with this opening, The Mother Church sponsored a Christian Science lecture with Tom McElroy, CSB, to talk about how getting beneath surface perceptions to discover spiritual insights is able to lead to healing on both a personal and a societal level.

Mark Sappenfield, Editor of The Christian Science Monitor, joined Tom at the end of Tom's lecture to talk about how he sees these kind of perspectives playing out in the news in ways that are making a tangible difference for the better. Mark and Tom then took questions from the audience on this topic.
