More from Nate Frederick…

In May 2023, our church hosted a Christian Science lecture in Birmingham and Detroit by Nate Frederick entitled “A New View of God & Prayer that Restores Health & Unity.” An avid mountain climber, he spoke about seeing God as divine Love and how a higher, more spiritual perspective from the mountain top can transform character and heal. If you missed it, similar talks he has given are online.

Now available is an interview with Nate published in the June 2023 issue of the Christian Science Journal addressing “What’s My Purpose.” It’s an excerpt from a recent Sentinel Watch Podcast that can be heard here.

A Spiritual Approach to Preventing Gun Violence

Living our lives in accord with spiritual precepts that prompt us to love our neighbor as ourself requires us to care enough to recognize when things aren’t right with those in our community and do what we can to help. And as we look for answers, let’s make sure to leave room for a spiritual approach.  READ Christian Science Sentinel article on 8-12-22 by Beth Schaefer in response to the May 24, 2022 Uvalde, Texas school shooting.
