On Sunday, Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. Christian Science practitioner Larissa Snorek-Yates will give a lecture on the topic The Healing Power of Stillness at First Church of Christ, Scientist, New Canaan, 49 Park Street. The talk is free, and everyone in the community is welcome.
Basing her discussion on The Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, Snorek-Yates will explain how everyone can discover a stillness that brings lasting peace and healing to their lives. She cites Eddy’s statement, “…the heaving surf of life’s troubled sea foams itself away, and underneath is a deep-settled calm,” and will discuss how we can find within ourselves this calm, which cannot be disrupted by fear or any outward disturbance.
Before dedicating her life to the full-time practice of Christian Science, Snorek-Yates received her Master’s degree in sustainability and peacebuilding and taught graduate students at the World Learning Institute. The Institute focuses on issues of social justice and community action, which enabled the speaker to see how relevant the ideas of Christian Science are to the challenges facing the world today.
The New Canaan Christian Science church holds services and Sunday School each week at 10:30 a.m. and testimony meetings each Wednesday evening at 7:30.
All are welcome at services and to use the Reading Room for quiet study and prayer.
