Why Everyone is Needed

God’s love is for everyone, and a Christian Science lecture is a perfect setting to learn about God’s love and the healing that it brings.

James has seen the healing effects of God’s love since he was a youngster, romping through the woods around his home with his three brothers. They had their share of scrapes and bruises which were quickly healed through prayer. On the rare occasions they felt sick, they relied on Christian Science for quick healings.

In high school his family moved to a ranch where they had cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, and turkeys. He graduated from college with a Bachelor’s degree in agriculture, but realized that serving as a Christian Science healer was the best way he could serve others. He left the ranch and took up the full-time work of helping others find healing through prayer. Thirty years later, he still loves this work as much as ever.

Over the years, James has enjoyed being active in many roles in his local Church of Christ, Scientist, and has worked at summer camps for Christian Scientists and their friends. He has also shared the message of Love’s transforming power in prison settings and youth detention centers. When his four children were little, he coached their sports programs. He finds other ways to help his community, such as by volunteering at a neighborhood church to help cook a free breakfast for those in need.

James loves spending time with his family and doing any outdoor activity. But his greatest joy will always be to find, and to help others find, a more tangible sense of God’s love for everyone and how that improves every aspect of our lives.

The author, Mary Baker Eddy explains the scientific laws behind the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus and invites readers to deeply consider the allness of God, the perfection of man as God's spiritual creation, and how an understanding of these facts can free one from sin, disease, and death just as they did in biblical times.
