About this event

Does everything around you seem to be changing? Is nothing dependable?

The love, goodness, and intelligence of God never change and are always available to everyone.

Hear Lesley Pitts, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker from Plymouth, Massachusetts, discuss this spiritual basis for trust. 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 on God’s goodness.

Lesley Pitts, a practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, believes her unusual career path illustrates the idea that following God’s lead is a more trustworthy foundation for living than relying on society’s expectations or other people’s opinions.

Previously, Lesley served as a Christian Science nurse for more than 30 years, mostly in the United Kingdom. This work brought her to the United States to work in the Christian Science Nursing Activities department at the Christian Science Church’s world headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. Later, she was part of the team that established The Mary Baker Eddy Library. Her nursing qualities were put to good use in organizing and caring for its collections — shared with the public for the first time. She served as Executive Manager and President of the Library for six years.

Working at the Library and becoming more familiar with Eddy’s remarkable accomplishments as the founder of a religious movement increased Lesley’s desire to better practice Christian Science in her own life and help others through her healing practice and lecturing.
