In-person event: Why Everyone is Needed
March 26, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
What is our worth? Or our value? What makes us feel really needed in this world? How do we find answers to these questions?
James Shepherd, a practitioner of Christian Science healing from Eugene, Oregon, will present a free talk based on the understanding of God through Christian Science, that will show how this understanding can give us direction in life and help us to realize our God-given purpose, as well as how to find freedom from pain, hatred, loneliness, addiction, mental or physical illness.
About James Shepherd
“I’ve seen the healing effects of God’s love since I was a youngster, romping through the woods around our home with my three brothers. We had our share of scrapes and bruises which were quickly healed through prayer. We didn’t get sick often, but when we did, we relied on Christian Science for quick healings.
In high school our family moved to a ranch where we had cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, and turkeys. I graduated from college with a Bachelor’s degree in agriculture, but realized that serving as a Christian Science healer was the best way I could serve others. So I left the ranch and took up the full-time work of helping others find healing through prayer. That was 30 years ago, and I still love this work as much as ever.
Over the years, I’ve enjoyed being active in many offices in my local Church of Christ, Scientist, and have worked at summer camps for Christian Scientists and their friends. I’ve also shared the message of Love’s transforming power in prison settings and youth detention centers. When my four children were little, I coached or participated in their sports programs. I’ve also found other ways to help in my community, such as by volunteering at a neighborhood church to help cook a free breakfast for those in need.
I love spending time with my family and I enjoy doing almost anything outdoors, from backpacking to doing a little work on the family ranch. But my greatest joy will always be to find, and to help others find, a more tangible sense of God’s love for everyone and how that improves every aspect of our lives.”
