Enhancing our joys! A Saturday Thought

We’ve enlisted the Peanuts gang to lead us in a celebratory dance of joy to commemorate 150 years of Christian Science healing. And as the Discoverer of Christian Science wrote in Science and Health, we enhance our joys “by believing them to be real and continuous” (p. 397). One such joyful thought of continuity surfaced this week in a Daily Lift […]

It has been published by Huffington Post as “All I Want for Christmas? To Feel God’s Love!” Here is an excerpt: “Maybe Christmas doesn’t come […]

Seeing the addict through healing eyes

“Seeing beyond another’s addiction” is my latest blog posted on The News Hub, in which I ask, “what if we’re dealing with an addict – especially one convinced they can’t make better choices, or simply don’t want to?

For my part, I was offering some perspective on Christian Science in the UK. […]

(Almost) everything you wanted to know about healing prayer, but were afraid to ask!

My latest blog, published by OnFaith, addresses questions people might have about prayer that heals. It’s called: 10 Things I Wish Everyone Knew About Healing Prayer Here are the ten points the blog addresses: 1. God doesn’t “hear” our prayers, because we don’t need Him to. 2.

Should we passively accept our mortality?

“Toward’s twilight” by Tony Lobl When it comes to dying, doctors don’t always take their own medicine. A poignant example is that of a highly respected clinician who was diagnosed with cancer and yet chose not to avail himself of chemotherapy, radiation, or surgical treatment. Instead, he closed his practice and spent some quality time […]
