Learn to Pray & Heal

(A spritual adventure)

Sunday, February 6 at 3 pm PT
Livestreamed below

Are prayer and healing for you? Yes, even if you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you’re not even sure what you think about God, you can still pray and be healed. Because prayer and healing are natural to us. Your willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect — for anyone.

Explore pragmatic faith rooted in a spiritual understanding of God and unconditional love. There’s no greater adventure!

What is Christian Science? An approach to Christianity based on the idea that the divine truth and love which shone through Jesus' life and works are timeless, universal, and understandable, and so can be experienced through healing in our lives today.  Find out more here.

about our speaker


Nate Frederick, CS

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.”

After traveling the world for a year and hiking extensively in the Himalayas, Nate came to Boston in 2008 to work for his church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist. Nate's many hobbies include adventuring in the outdoors, writing songs and cooking.

Nate is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
