Practical Christianity is a practice of love

FALLBROOK – What do people think of when they hear the word “Christianity?” For some, Christianity may have negative connotations.

“But the Christianity I know,” Mary Alice Rose, practitioner of Christian Science healing and an international speaker, said. “The practice of love that Christ Jesus taught is a vital, crucial agent for healing in the world today.”

Rose will give a talk called, “Practicing Christian Healing Today,” June 8, at 11 a.m., in the Fallbrook Library community room, 124 S. Mission Road, in Fallbrook.

Rose will explore how everyone can apply the Bible’s teachings of love to the daily demands of the 21st century. She’ll also refer to helpful explanations of this approach to healing from the book, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” written by Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the Christian Science movement.

“At the heart of healing is love – having the true vision of our neighbor which flows from God, love itself.” Rose said. “In this lecture, I’ll share how this love compels us to go beyond our preconceived notions and discover more of each individual’s God-derived nature in order to help others. My hope is that you’ll be able to walk away from this lecture with the essence of true Christianity in your own heart: love that reforms, transforms and heals.”

Rose has had a lifelong interest in science and technology that 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 said she 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.
