In-person event: The Joy of Beginning with God

March 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Come to this free talk by Mark McCurties, a practitioner of Christian Science healing from Ann Arbor. Michigan. He will explore how a better understanding of the good that God forever cause, can help us to experience more of that goodness in the form of health, peace, and safety for our world. In the beginning, from the beginning, and without beginning, God is causing good. 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!


About Mark McCurties

Ever since he was a little boy, Mark had a deep love for the Bible. When he read about men and women in the Bible overcoming hatred, famine, war, physical disease, and other hardships, their triumphs inspired him. It didn’t matter what the odds were, or what conditions they faced, individuals in the Bible seemed to flourish in adversity based on one common theme: their deep love for God.

Growing up in a Christian Science household, there was another book that Mark loved to read daily: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures written by Mary Baker Eddy. The very purpose of her book is to help unlock and reveal the deeper divine meaning and inspiration of the Bible. Together the Bible and Science and Health point to the practical healing and saving power of God and its present availability for all mankind. Mark knew that someday he wanted to share that healing message with the world.

As he grew into adulthood, experiences in the field of education as a summer camp director, outdoor educator, athletics coach, and resident counselor all helped to develop his understanding and practice of Christian Science. While working with young people, Mark had multiple opportunities to witness God’s healing power. These examples proved to him that the healing power of the Christ is just as alive and relevant today as for the men and women of the Bible. In 2010, with a desire to focus solely on healing through prayer, Mark entered the full-time public practice of Christian Science.
