Topic: Is there anything that we can truly rely on? Finding a spiritual basis of trust enables us to turn to a divine presence whenever we need it. The love, goodness, and intelligence of God never change and are always available. The more we discover of God’s love and care for us, the more we can confidently turn to this divine presence and find our lives transformed and healed – and our families, communities, and the whole world benefit, too. Anyone can learn how to lean into God’s trustworthiness.

Mark McCurties


Speaker: Mark McCurties, Christian Science practitioner, Ann Arbor, MI

Location: Christian Science Church, 6753 W. Harbor Hwy, Glen Arbor 49636

Contact: (231) 334-4961 or

Topic: The very first verse of the Bible in the chapter Genesis offers the most wonderful news: “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” Part of what this glorious verse tells us is that in reality, everything and everyone begins with God. In other words, God is the only cause and the only creator, and God is causing good and right developments for each one of us.

Mark will explore how a better understanding of the good that God forever causes, can help us to experience more of that goodness in the form of health, peace, and safety for our world.

As loved children of God, we each have a divine right to feel the effect of that divine goodness in our daily lives. Come learn more about the joy of beginning with God!
