Cancelled: Experiencing Heaven Now
Exploring heavenly perspectives that can make a difference here and now
In college, speaker Mary Bothwell was suddenly hit with a feeling of being disconnected and alone. Maybe it was because she was the only female physics major. Maybe it was because her work schedule meant she was seeing less of my friends. Whatever the reason, she knew that a change in circumstances wouldn’t solve anything. It was at that point that spirituality became of primary importance in helping her find a lasting solution. For Bothwell, spirituality means our connectedness to God and whatever practice we have that helps us recognize that. So perhaps it’s not surprising that one day, after after an insight about God and the ever-presence of God’s love dawned on her, the disconnect vanished. Since then, she’s felt a conviction that divine Love is here for her, and for everyone.
“In spite of the hyper-connectedness of social media and technology, we live in an era in which many are feeling this same disconnect. We all yearn to find meaningful relationships, or a more lasting connection with peace, contentment, even health. In my lecture, I’ll discuss how anyone can become genuinely aware of God’s presence and experience heaven–harmony, health, and happiness–here and now.” “I’ll also share how the study of the Bible, and a book that explains the healing relevance of the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, can open up a new meaning of heaven to each of us. This heaven isn’t a place, but a tangible feeling of being enveloped in love and spirituality that comes from understanding more about God. We’ll explore the new perspectives that come from this understanding of God–healing perspectives that can resolve all kinds of difficulties, and transform our lives for good.”
