ALEXANDRE Fischer, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will present his talk, How Spiritual Perception Brings Healing on Tuesday, May 21 at 6.30pm at The Courtyard, Hereford.

The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus' life and teachings, and show how they are available for anyone to understand and experience.

Fischer will discuss the approach to spirituality and well-being that explains these ideas, Christian Science, and share examples of healing from his own life and the lives of others. The talk is free and open to the community.

Fischer will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, and how anyone can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Fischer will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, a mid-nineteenth century woman from New England, and how she came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing.

Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus' demand, "He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father" (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For over 150 years, people around the world have also worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, with healings of physical ills and personal difficulties for themselves and others.

Fischer has been a practitioner of Christian Science healing for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. He travels from his home base in Paris, France, to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
