shutterstock_111653231This recording is of the readings on the topic:  My Shepherd is Beside Me, and Nothing Can I Lack, which formed part of the Testimony Meeting in Canberra on Wednesday 27th December.  Citations were taken from the Bible (King James Version) and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

The title of readings is taken from a line in hymn 148 from the Christian Science Hymnal:

Wherever He may guide me, / No want shall turn me back; / My Shepherd is beside me, / And nothing can I lack. / His wisdom ever waketh, / His sight is never dim; / He knows the way He taketh, / And I will walk with Him. / …

Bright skies will soon be o’er me, / Where darkest clouds have been. … / My Father has my treasure, / And He will walk with me.

If you are in Canberra on any Wednesday please join us at 6.00 pm – our Testimony Meetings are open to everyone.  We are located on the corner of Macquarie and Bligh Streets, Barton in the ACT.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Love Heals – A Talk by Beth Packer   4 comments

It’s Never Too Late to Find a Deeper Understanding of Love

Beth2A ps JuneAt the invitation of the Christian Science Church in Canberra international speaker, Beth Packer, will be speaking to the Canberra community on Sunday 22 September at 2.30 pm in the Reception Room of the Legislative Assembly Building on London Circuit.  

Worldwide, people have heard and loved her moving talk titled, “Love Heals”.

Beth says, “I’ve found that people everywhere, at all stages of their lives, are looking for much the same things – to know that there are solutions to their problems – whether they are problems related to health, companionship, family, finances or our individual sense of purpose. We all need to know that we’re not alone or lost in the world, that there is hope and healing”.  She says, “I’ve found through personal experience that the knowledge that God knows each one of us and loves us, is like turning a light on in the darkness, and has brought practical healing solutions to my life even in the toughest, most uncertain times.”

This beautiful talk shows through a personal journey and through healing examples, that the recognition that we are all truly known and deeply loved by God, who is Love, can bring healing and restoration to our lives, our relationships, and our health.  It includes examples of the healing of illness, deafness and severe accident, as well as thoughts of suicide.

Beth said, “Together, we’ll explore our true identity as the dearly beloved of God, a knowledge that can transform our lives, making us happier, healthier, and holier”.  These 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.

Having been both an award winning artist and a successful retailer, Beth has lived with her husband and two girls in both Australia and the Middle East.  Whatever she was involved in, always she found that prayer was her most effective means for solving the practical problems of everyday life.  Eventually, it became clear that this was the best way she could help the world so, fulfilling a lifetime desire to help and heal others, she became a full-time practitioner of Christian Science healing.

Beth is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.  She travels worldwide from her home on the South Coast of NSW.

This free public lecture is given as a gift from the members of Christian Science Church to the people of Canberra.  It brings a message of hope and reassurance.
