What does purity have to do with healing? Our guest isn’t talking about a checklist to make one “holier than thou.” He’s sharing a much more fundamental spiritual concept of purity that supports better healing. Join us to hear more about this.

This week’s Christian Science Sentinel print edition further discusses spiritual healing in the editorial Admit it. And we are reminded again that it is that God does the healing, not us, in the article Is that your job? The author was praying about a family issue and writes 

… when Christ Jesus was asked to settle a family dispute, he replied, “Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?” (Luke 12:14). I reasoned that if Jesus didn’t need to step in and mediate a quarrel, maybe I didn’t either.

… As I prayed to understand the true role of a peacemaker, I realized that it begins with understanding God as the creator and governor of all. Each of God’s children has a direct relationship to Him that is always intact, is never dysfunctional, and requires no mediator.

Join us to hear about gaining this higher spiritual view that helps us move beyond even the most challenging circumstances and relationships to spiritual health and wholeness.
