Christian Science Speaker Event Is March 16

First Church of Christ, Scientist in La Cañada Flintridge will host guest speaker Emra Farkas, practitioner of Christian Science healing and an international speaker, on Saturday, March 16, at the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge.
The discussion, “Finding where God is seen and felt — what’s church got to do with it?” will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Bible, “especially in Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, showing how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science,” according to a press release.
The event is free and open to all community members.
“A new kind of thinking is needed to recognize that God’s goodness and love are actually here and tangible to all humanity everywhere,” Farkas said. “The idea of ‘church’ can shift from being a physical building, a set time on a particular day, or an assembly of perfect humans (does that even exist?), to that of being what God builds in our lives every moment through us responding to Christ Jesus’ message of God’s all-powerful love.”
Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Farkas will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific.
Farkas will also touch on the life of founder Mary Baker Eddy, who came to understand, confirm and teach what she felt was original Christian healing and outlines the practices in her book “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.”
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,” found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible.
“For more than 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, experiencing healings of physical ills and personal difficulties,” according to the press release.
Farkas has been a Christian Science practitioner for years, helping people daily through this scientific approach to prayer. She travels from her home base in New Mexico to speak to audiences as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
