Sharing Christian Science in Laguna Beach, CA

Clergymen, occupying the watchtowers of the world, should uplift the standard of Truth. They should so raise their hearers spiritually, that their listeners will love to grapple with a new, right idea and broaden their concepts.

This year's theme

"One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; constitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfills the Scripture, “Love thy neighbor as thyself;” annihilates pagan and Christian idolatry,—whatever is wrong in social, civil, criminal, political, and religious codes; equalizes the sexes; annuls the curse on man, and leaves nothing that can sin, suffer, be punished or destroyed."

—Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 340

Be sure to visit often as information will continue to be updated.

"Loving yourself as your neighbor"

With Tony Lobl, May 23

Do you love yourself? Really, truly love yourself? Moving beyond liking yourself—flaws and all—to getting to know your real selfhood—flawless and spiritual—isn't just satisfying; it's healing. And it's fundamental to fulfilling the second great commandment, "Love your neighbor as yourself."
