What do you think of when you hear the word Christianity? For some, Christianity may have negative connotations. “But the Christianity I know,” says practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, Mary Alice Rose, “the practice of love that Christ Jesus taught, is a vital, crucial agent for healing in the world today.”

You are invited to hear Rose give a talk called, Practicing Christian Healing Today, Sunday, March 22nd at 2 pm at Botanica, the Wichita Gardens, 701 N. Amidon St.- and to contemplate that message afterwards in the gardens, free of charge.

Rose will explore how everyone can apply the Bible’s teachings of love to the daily demands of the 21st century. She’ll also refer to helpful explanations of this approach to healing from the book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the Christian Science movement.

At the heart of healing is love—having the true vision of our neighbor which flows from God, Love itself.” says Rose. “In this lecture, I’ll share how this love impels us to go beyond our preconceived notions and discover more of each individual’s God-derived nature in order to help others. My hope is that you’ll be able to walk away from this lecture with the essence of true Christianity in your own heart: love that reforms, transforms, and heals.”

Mary Alice Rose has had a lifelong interest in science and technology that led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physical science. Her work ranged from a meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory to a manager developing the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope. As interesting as her career was, Rose found that she wanted more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor: exploring her relationship with God. So, in 2002, she made the transition from manager, engineer, and earth scientist to the full-time ministry as a Christian Science practitioner. She is now an authorized teacher of this Science and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Rose travels from her home in Brookeville, Maryland.
