This upcoming talk on Christian Science will be at the Evanston Public Library (1703 Orrington) at 1pm on Sunday, June 2nd. In this free talk, Brian will dig deeper into what innocence really is. He discusses how God is Love itself, which empowers us with God-derived innocence. Christ Jesus’ life illustrated this God-given power, which has nothing to do with the naivete, vulnerability, or helplessness that society often associates with innocence. This innocence is based on God’s unconditional love; it indicates that we are safe depending on divine Love as our source, and it means we can have an undoubting expectation of good. The very substance of our being is pure and perfect, like our Maker, and cannot change. Our innate innocence means we always deserve to be free from pain, both mental and physical. And we have the ability to bring freedom and goodness to others, even those that would victimize. He’s seen that victims are not beyond help and comfort and that victimizers can be reformed. We don’t have to wait to experience the love that heals.

Our church, a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA, is part of a network of Christian Science Churches and Societies around the world dedicated to reinstating “primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Mary Baker Eddy). We are a diverse group of people who live in and love Evanston, the greater Chicago area, and the world. In addition to our Sunday and Wednesday inspirational and healing services and Sunday School, we maintain a Christian Science Reading Room, a spiritual bookstore and resource center.
