Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving prayer

A guest post written by Diana Colarossi from San Juan Capistrano, California. Is Thanksgiving, a day, a holiday, or a state of mind? Does it matter if we celebrate Thanksgiving among friends, family, or alone? Thanksgiving isn’t a day. It’s a state of mind giving gratitude to God. Thanks to God shouldn’t be confined to one special day of the year. Nor is it a time that must be spent with people, for joy can also be found in the quiet Continue Reading

by Don Ingwerson President Obama has pledged $100,000,000 in his 2014 budget for new brain research according to the New York Times Editorial Board.  The ultimate aim is to learn how the brain generates thoughts, dreams, memories, perceptions, and other mental images.  Is it possible to measure something that may not reside in the brain but in a form of consciousness outside the material substance called the brain?

A guest post written by Robin Collins To take good care of my health I am learning the value of self-examination, not by investigating my body, but instead my thoughts. When in urgent need, I’ve found a pure, unselfish outlook helps cure discomfort, pain, and disease. In practicing Christian Science, I take a close look at my motive. I ask, “Is this just about me? Or is it about God, all-present Love. Am I equally interested in the welfare of Continue Reading

Put a “Be” Before Healthy

@Glowimages MYC0010535.

A guest post written by Ingrid Peschke, health blogger, legislative liaison for Christian Science and spirituality in Massachusetts So often the emphasis is on the “doing” not the “being” when it comes to caring for one’s health. People do all sorts of things, from taking daily medications to undergoing treatments and procedures to find out if they are healthy or not. Yet despite all these efforts, health can still be illusive. All this Continue Reading

The Brain: Is it the Source of Health?

120-6LJ

by Don Ingwerson As a life-long educator, I get excited when new discoveries are made that show how to maintain health and be freer from physical and mental limitations. My most recent encouragement came from the new book Super Brain, which supports the idea that the brain is important to our health in a number of newly discovered ways.

A guest post written by Keith Wommack, a legislative liaison for spiritual healing and Christian Science in Texas. I am intrigued by the power of expectations; by the impact they have on our well-being. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Thomas Curry, a licensed Texas psychotherapist about this phenomenon. Dr. Curry explained, “Expectations are a hot topic in healthcare practice and research. It is widely recognized that Continue Reading

Steeples

Guest post written by Keith Wommack, Committee on Publication for Texas You say you were dragged to church every week? You didn’t want to go? Your mother insisted it was good for you? Well, she was right. And in even more ways than she imagined. Turns out, if you’re concerned about your health, church is the place to be. Jeff Levin in his book, God, Faith, and Health: Exploring the Spirituality Healing Connection, explains: Continue Reading

A guest post written by Fran Esser Very often in the news we hear or read about one or more people wanting to remove God or any reference to God from the Pledge of Allegiance, from schools, government facilities, courtrooms, etc., claiming separation of church and state. How can God be removed from anything since God fills all space? We are fully covered and protected by His law of love and this law does not need amending. It’s free, a gift Continue Reading
