Faith & Religion:
Understanding
Christian Science

Science, health, and faith – some would suggest that they are deeply connected. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith, science, health, and prayer. Mary Baker Eddy, founder of the Christian Science movement, argued in her 1875 book “Science and Health” that sickness is an illusion that can be corrected by prayer alone. There can be no doubt that faith often plays a significant role in regard to how people think about both health and science. We’ll look at these issues from our various faith traditions – also, we will be joined by a person who brings expertise in regard to the religious tradition of Christian Science. For many, little is known regarding the beliefs and practices of this 19th-century New England religion. It belongs to the metaphysical family of newer religious movements. We will learn about it from one of their lecturers. We will talk with a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, Mrs. Michelle Nanouche, about her faith tradition – that’s coming up on this Friends Talking Faith.
