Humility is powerful?
True humility empowers us to do good and overcome evil
Mark McCurties, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will present his talk, “Humility that ‘overcomes the world’,” on [date, time, location information]. The 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 First Church of Christ, Scientist, Eugene, Oregon.
“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 says. “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 to meet that demand.”
McCurties will share healings to explain why Christian Science is both Christian 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 movement, Mary Baker Eddy.
McCurties will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, and how she came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will 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.
