Prayer is about spiritual discovery. It’s about understanding more of what God is and learning to see our lives and the world through the lens of God’s all-good nature. It’s about stripping away surface-level appearances in order to discern what actually IS. Spiritual discovery reveals what is substantial, lasting, and powerful — and this leads to healing. What’s the outcome? Progress. Transformation. Wholeness. For anyone.
Jesus modeled a universal way to pray that leads to a greater awareness of the nature of God and of our relation to God. He showed how turning from fear and preconceived notions to a clearer view of the presence of a God that is Love and Life itself can have a tangible, healing effect in our lives. Bible accounts indicate that others who followed his example and teachings proved this too. Freedom from injustice, hunger, illness, even incurable disease, was gained through discovering more of what God is and does.
Prayer can have a tangible, healing effect today, too. Problems related to our personal history and health as well as issues that trouble entire communities are rooted in misperceptions based on surface-level reasoning. Ultimately, they never change the facts of what’s rooted in the nature of God — what’s genuine, good, and reliable. Prayer that leads to this true viewpoint, one that’s based on spiritual discovery, results in healing.
Does this sound like blind and dumb faith or positive thinking? It’s not—and centuries of tangible, healing experiences help prove the Science of it. Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of this approach to Christianity and healing: Christian Science makes clear the timeless, universal, and repeatable truths that underpin Jesus’ life and teachings. Eddy’s primary work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, explains Christian Science so that anyone can apply it and experience it for themselves.
Can we better the world? Absolutely. Misperceptions appear on any scale. Just so, the universal truths at the heart of Christian healing are true on any scale. Spiritual views can affect progress for communities just as they do for individuals. We can help the world by discovering what’s true!

The challenging problems we face today demand a fresh approach to solutions. We can’t afford to overlook the needed component of spirituality to make real progress on the issues that confront our lives and well-being.
Practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, Michelle Nanouche, says, “Through honest talk about the questions people ask, I give a one hour lecture that tackles the essentials of Christian Science – its unique value as a system of healing, its practical Christianity, and its broader contribution to solving individual and societal problems today.”
The lecture will explore a variety of questions, including: “Why is it that genuine healing involves more than purely physical factors based on a patient’s biology and genetic make-up?” “What does Christian Science offer beyond positive thinking or faith healing?” “How is Christian Science both spiritual and scientific?”
Nanouche’s responses are based on the works and teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures written by Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the Christian Science movement. Nanouche will also offer compelling examples – including the healing of a severe leg injury – from her professional practice of healing to illustrate elements of Christian Science treatment.
Michelle Nanouche trained and practiced as a Christian Science Nurse for 10 years before changing her focus from nursing care to the practice of Christian Science healing through prayer. She brings over 30 years of professional healing experience to her current roles of practitioner, teacher and lecturer on Christian Science. She lectures on the connection between prayer and health throughout the US and in Africa and Europe. For several years, Nanouche was also the official contact person for information on Christian Science to public authorities, lawmakers, and media in the state of New Jersey, USA.
Michelle Nanouche is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. She travels from her home in Paris, France, and is available to lecture in French and English.

The Christian Science Monitor offers a global outlook on the current events of the day. Mary Baker Eddy founded this newspaper in 1908 with the objective "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind." The Monitor is available daily online and weekly in a print magazine.
Mary Baker Eddy started The Christian Science Journal in 1883 as a monthly publication to "put on record the divine Science of Truth." It includes articles to help readers think through the ideas studied in the Bible and Science and Health. It also includes testimonies of healing and a directory of Christian Science Practitioners, who are available to pray for anyone looking for prayer-based healing.
In 1898, Mrs. Eddy started the Christian Science Sentinel, a weekly publication. This publication looks at current trends and issues of the day, bringing God's healing power to transform our daily lives through divine Love.
The first Herald of Christian Science was published in German in 1903. It has expanded since that time to include many other languages, including French, Portuguese, and Spanish, bringing the healing power of Truth to the world.
The Mary Baker Eddy Library is available for visitors to learn more about the life and achievements of Mary Baker Eddy. Visitors to the Library may also be interested in touring the Mapparium®, the Publishing House Lobby, and The Mother Church.
CHURCH. The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.
The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 583:12–19)
