The Christian Science Society Tampa Bay is proud to sponsor an interactive webinar entitled “Prayer That Heals” presented by Evan Mehlenbacher, a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Jesus Christ taught,“Know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” This lecture explains powerful spiritual truths that set mind and body free of suffering, pain and disease. Evan will walk participants through practical spiritual truths found in the Bible and the teachings of Christian Science that empower prayer to heal.
Have you had a spiritual “aha moment?”
Chet Manchester, CSB, discusses moments of spiritual breakthrough and their healing power in this talk given during a recent lecture series on “Spiritual Solutions to Lasting Health”. This lecture was filmed at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Pasco, Washington on October 11th, 2014.

It’s here! …the Fall lineup of Bible Study group topics from Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, Jacksonville.
BIBLE STUDY IN THE READING ROOM – Located at: 8327 Beach Blvd. Jacksonville, FL 32216
- October 11 (10 a.m. to Noon)
Unit 1: Hear, My Child (Proverbs 1-8) We will review:
What’s a proverb?
Wisdom literature in the Bible
When/How Proverbs was written, and King Solomon’s connection to Proverbs
The literary structure of Proverbs
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” is Proverbs’ central theme. We’ll dig in to some individual proverbs and investigate “wisdom/knowledge” elsewhere in the Bible: Kings 10-12 (King Solomon), Luke 2: 39-52 (Jesus as a child), and I Corinthians 1:17-2:13 (Paul on worldly vs. Godly wisdom).
- November 8 (10 a.m. to Noon)
Unit 2: Temptations: Lady Wisdom versus Madame Folly. We’ll compare Proverbs 9 to other references to temptation in the Bible:
The Lord’s Prayer (Matt. 6:13)
Genesis Chapter 39 (Joseph and the Master’s Wife)
II Samuel 11-12:15 (David and Bathsheba)
Luke 4:1-13 (Jesus tempted in the wilderness)
I John 4:21
- December 6 (10 a.m. to Noon)
Unit 3: Timeless Ethical and Moral Teachings.
We will explore the relationship between “wisdom” in Proverbs and “Christ.” A recommended homework assignment is to read Proverbs 10, 11, 16, 22, and 26 and mentally substitute the word “Christ” for “wisdom.” We’ll consider Jesus’ ethical teachings in the context of the intent of wisdom teachings. We might discover why some scholars place Jesus’ Beatitudes in the category of “proverbs.”
NOTE ON STUDY GUIDE: We will use the Foundation Stones Bible Study series as an outline and guide. The workbook, “Proverbs: The Book of Wisdom and the Art of Successful Living,” is organized into an introduction and three study units, and will be available for purchase. We’ll tackle one unit per session. It’s recommended but not required to read the relevant unit and introductory material prior to coming to the Bible study session. To order an individual copy, call and leave a message at the Reading Room, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
