Most people see an infant and think of childlike innocence. And many assume the trials of life will take away that innocence as the child grows up. But what if true innocence, not naiveté, were a permanent part of one’s nature? How might that actually strengthen and benefit people in their well-being and daily experiences?
Brian Pennix, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will present his talk, “Finding innocence that is power, not vulnerability,” on November 16, at 3:00-4:00 pm, 25555 Old Moultrie Road, St. Augustine.
“Through my practice of Christian Science, I’ve come to see that God is Love itself, loving unconditionally, which empowers each of us with God-derived innocence,” says Mr. Pennix. “It indicates we can find safety and have an undoubting expectation of good. Our innate innocence means we always deserve to be free from pain, both mental and physical, as I have experienced many times in my life. And we have the ability to bring freedom and goodness to others, even those that would victimize.”
The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, and show how they are available for anyone to understand and experience. Mr. Pennix will discuss the approach to spirituality and well-being that explains these ideas, why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific – meaning that anyone can prove its effectiveness for themselves, and will share examples of healing from his own life and the lives of others. The talk is free and open to the community. All are welcome!
