Is there a divine government that we can turn to for justice and freedom?


  • Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
    The Holy Bible, Galatians 5

    God has endowed man with inalienable rights, among which are self-government, reason, and conscience.

God’s eye view of you — a free one hour online talk

Thursday May 20, 7:30 pm PT

Fujiko Signs, CSB

Fujiko Signs is a student, practitioner, and teacher of Christian Science. She studies the relationship between prayer and healing, consciousness and reality, spirituality and well being. Her job is to find out how we can free ourselves from various limitations. Previously, she worked as a market research consultant for computer manufacturing companies and taught Japanese language and literature at community colleges and universities. She also taught dance to children.

As she studied and learned more about Christian Science, she witnessed many healings within her family and circle of friends and eventually received requests to assist others with prayer. After becoming a Christian Science practitioner, she was asked to talk with doctors and nurses about patients with a desire to practice non-traditional medicine, including prayer and meditation. She also volunteered in a community coalition in hopes of encouraging and enhancing communication between different faith groups that sought well-being in the community.

Hosted by Christian Science Societies Duncan and Nanaimo, BC.


The law of Love — a free one hour online talk

Watch a replay of this April 25 talk
Hosted by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Victoria

The law of Love is the central theme of the Bible and it was the law behind Christ Jesus’ healing ministry. Throughout her life Mary Baker Eddy was a dedicated student of the Bible, and she discovered that spiritual healing is based on this divine law of God, Spirit — which she subsequently named Christian Science. This led her to write the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, which explains how we can demonstrate these laws and feel its healing effects for ourselves, each other and the world.

Anne Melville, CSB
Anne is from Kaikohe, New Zealand, and was employed with a community based organization where she found working for her community gave such purpose to her work. Eventually, the only ambition she had was to spend time in the evenings studying Christian Science, and to be in the public practice of Christian Science healing. The heart to work for her community, and the skills she learned during this period, prepared her for work within the Christian Science Church movement. After being employed as a full time Christian Science Practitioner, Anne became a teacher of Christian Science in 2012, was appointed the Committee on Publication for New Zealand in 2014, and joined the Christian Science Board of Lectureship in 2019.


Finding the light that frees us from fear

A replay of this March 13 talk is shown below

Alexandre Fischer, CS
Christian Science healer

Living life without fear is absolutely possible. We’re not stuck! Understanding more clearly our relationship with God, infinite good, ends fear and brings healing. This 30-minute lecture explores how clarity about our oneness with God, Love, helps us find answers, joy, and health. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the talk.

International speaker, Alexandre Fischer, from Paris, France shows how Christ Jesus’ teaching brings healing. He shares firsthand examples of healing, such as cancer, employment, finances. We’re sometimes tempted to battle fear or give up, when all we really need to do is to discover our oneness with the infinite, and paralyzing fear vanishes. Fischer practiced law in France and the United States before becoming a practitioner of Christian Science healing and is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

    The safety of women May 6, 2021
    At times, safety can seem precarious. But in God there’s a powerful basis for protection, as a woman experienced when two young men began to assault her in a remote area.
