Can there really be aÂ science to Christianity?Â Â International speaker, Mary Alice Rose, will present a talk titled, â€œTheÂ Science of Christianityâ€ onÂ Saturday April 2nd at 3 p.m., in the First Church of Christ Scientist auditorium, 2555 Old Moultrie Road â€“ free of charge and open to the public. Roseâ€™s interest in science andÂ technology led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physicalÂ science.
Her work ranged from aÂ meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory to a manager developingÂ theÂ ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope.Â Â As interesting as her career was, Rose foundÂ that she wantedÂ more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor:Â exploring her relationship with God.
â€œIn my talk I will draw parallels betweenÂ how physical scientists approach the subjects they study and howÂ individualsÂ approach the study of Christian Science,â€ saysÂ Rose.Â Â “OneÂ of the most fundamental laws in theÂ practice of Christian Science comes fromÂ the book of First John in the Bible: ‘God is love.’Â Â That is a powerfulÂ law that has healed meÂ physically and mentally.Â Â I’ll shareÂ examples illustrating that law in action.” Roseâ€™s ideas areÂ based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in theÂ Bible, and as discussed inÂ ScienceÂ andÂ HealthÂ with Key to the Scriptures,Â by Mary Baker Eddy.
In 2002,Â sheÂ made the transition from manager,Â engineer, and earth scientist to the full-time ministry as a ChristianÂ ScienceÂ practitioner.Â Â She is now an authorizedÂ teacher of this Science and a member of the Christian ScienceÂ Board ofÂ Lectureship. For more information call 904.461.5623.
