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 […]

David Bowie – sincere seeker?

With the recent news of David Bowie’s passing I felt drawn to look a little deeper into his spiritual quest and found it as moving as his music through the decades.

Bowie, my ‘O’ level and The Christian Science Monitor.

One of my proudest moments as a teen was when I managed to sneak the lyrics of a song from his “Aladin Sane” album into my ‘O’ level English literature examination, using it to answer the poetry question. I passed! Later […]

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?

PODCAST: 20th century UK artists and ground breaking women politicians

I recently participated in a Mary Baker Eddy Library podcast. It focused on British students of Christian Science who were pioneering modern artists (Lucy Kent on Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Winifred Nicholson) and glass-ceiling shattering women parliamentarians (Robin Harragin on Nancy Astor, Margaret Wintringham and Thelma Cazalet-Keir). For my part, I was offering some perspective on Christian Science in the UK. […]

From belief to faith, from faith to understanding…

To coincide with OWN TV’s weeklong focus on the subject of “belief”, I humbly offer you a whole article of (spiritual) thoughts. That’s right, Oprah Winfrey’s inviting us all to discuss “belief” for the coming week, and here’s my response – posted on the Huffington Post as Oprah: “What do you believe?”.  I ask, “how much further can our spiritual quest […]

Happiness and satisfaction guaranteed? Get to know God!

Here’s an excerpt from my latest blog on Medium.com, posted as “Happiness and satisfaction guaranteed? Get to know God!” My friend’s a perfect 10. She found out yesterday, and she shared the news with her church. Now perhaps you’re thinking Bo Derek in the movie “10”. And maybe you’re further thinking that a church meeting […]
