Our Lord’s Prayer was an in-person and online talk by Roy Gessford, an Aramaic Scholar. It was held on Sunday, June 30, 2024, at Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, 134 Polk Avenue, New Orleans, LA. Roy shared insights on the Lord’s Prayer as examined in three different texts: The King James Version of the Holy Bible; Mary Baker Eddy’s scientific sense from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures; and the original Chaldean Aramaic spoken by Jesus (Peshitta). We also had a separate class in learning how to read and write Chaldean.

Summer 2023 was a perfect time for some zoom seminars. Don Feldheim presented a two-part-workshop on Zoom entitled "Our Bible Lessons: Understanding Them & Reading Them Expressively and Effectively." Then Daniel Carr of The Mother Church led two meetings: "Moving Forward Together as a Church of Healers!" 

Angry No More: From Hurt to Health through Forgiveness was an in-person lecture by Michelle Nanouche, a Christian Science practitioner and teacher from Paris, France. This lecture was held on February 25, 2023, at First Church of Christ, Scientist, 129 East 23rd Avenue, Covington, LA. As the lecturer explains, "Spiritual reasoning through prayer, as taught in Christian Science, opens one's natural ability for peace, forgiveness, restoration, and progress." 

Humility that "Overcomes the World" was an in-person and online one-hour talk by Mark McCurties, a Christian Science practitioner and member of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship. This lecture was held on September 18, 2022, at First Church of Christ, Scientist, 1434 Nashville Avenue, New Orleans, LA. Mark addressed the great need for healing in the world today, and further discussed the Christlike humility which helps us meet that demand.
On January 11, 2022, the Christian Science Society in Lafayette, LA, sponsored an online lecture with Nate Frederick. Experiencing first-hand the healing power of divine Love, God, is Nate’s favorite thing. It’s what makes him tick.

Nate studied perennial religion at Hampshire College where he was introduced to Christian Science healing. Although he was enamored with the academic exploration of spirituality, what he truly desired most was to practice spirituality in a tangible way — he wanted to experience God and heal others. “Without comparison, my greatest love, my greatest joy — my mission — is to transform lives and heal the sick through Christianly Scientific prayer.”
