John Tyler heads to Duncan for Christian Science lecture

A Christian Science lecture is coming to Duncan. The lecture, titled “Discover Your Spiritual Identity” is scheduled for May 26, 11 a.m., in the Heritage Hall of the Duncan United Church.

The lecture examines questions such as, do we have a spiritual origin? If so, can we discover what it is? What about our family origin?

“This lecture shows us a fresh, completely different approach to finding the answer to the questions Who am I; What is my real identity?” a press release for the event said.

“It further shows how, by understanding more in detail our spiritual origin, we can be free of all kinds of limitation, even to the point of physical healing,” the release states. “It shows how this kind of self-knowledge can be used in the workplace, in sports, wherever we are.”

The lecturer, John Tyler, has spoken to audiences in every imaginable venue, from prisons to secret meeting places behind the Iron Curtain. He has given talks in six languages on five continents. Far from needing a special healing talent, he is convinced that the whole purpose of Christ Jesus’s career was to show everyone how to understand God and unity with Him in such a way that everyone can demonstrate this in every aspect of their lives. His talks are sprinkled with examples of how people can heal naturally.
