International speaker, Mary Alice Rose
Can there really be a science to Christianity? Are there actually spiritual laws that can be proven reliably? International speaker, Mary Alice Rose, has the answer: “Christian Science is rooted in the scientific method. I’ve witnessed examples in my own life and work, and that of others, illustrating how spiritual laws can be consistently put into practice.”
Rose will present a 1-hour talk, titled “The Science of Christianity,” on Sunday, February 2, at 2:00 p.m, in Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Rd, East Lansing.
“In my talk I will draw parallels between how physical scientists approach the subjects they study and how individuals approach the study of Christian Science,” says Rose. "One of the most fundamental laws in the practice of Christian Science comes from the book of First John in the Bible: 'God is love.' That is a powerful law that has healed me physically and mentally. I'll share examples illustrating that law in action."
Rose’s ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in The Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
Her interest in science and technology led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physical science. Her work ranged from being a meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory, to a manager developing the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope. As interesting as her career was, Rose found that she wanted more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor: exploring her relationship with God. So in 2002 she made the transition from manager, engineer, and earth scientist to full-time ministry as a Christian Science practitioner. She is now an authorized teacher of this Science, has had a number of articles published in Christian Science periodicals, and speaks to a broad range of audiences as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. She and her husband live in Brookeville, Maryland.
The talk is sponsored by the Greater Lansing Christian Science Church as a gift to the community – admission, parking and child care are free.
