— Can prayer have a tangible impact in our daily lives? Is the Bible relevant in this day and age? International speaker, Mary Alice Rose, says, “Yes! I’ve witnessed examples in my own life and that of others illustrating the importance and effectiveness of Bible-based prayer.”

Rose will present a talk titled, “Practicing Christian healing today” on Sunday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m., at First Church of Christ, Scientist, 144 Woodport Road, Sparta.

“In my talk I will share what the Bible has meant in my life and why Christianity is still compelling to me today,” says Rose. "I will explore how reading the Scriptures with spiritual understanding brings to light the applicability of the Bible's teachings in the 21st century and how everyone can cultivate qualities that promote healing. I'll share examples illustrating how I and others have put these ideas into practice."

Rose’s ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

Rose’s interest in science and technology led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physical science. Her work ranged from a meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory to a manager developing the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope. As interesting as her career was, Rose found that she wanted more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor: exploring her relationship with God. So, in 2002, she made the transition from manager, engineer, and earth scientist to the full-time ministry as a Christian Science practitioner. She is now an authorized teacher of this Science and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. Rose travels from her home in Brookeville, Maryland.
