Prayer and healing as reliable healthcare
Is prayer really a reliable form of health care? Can God be relied on for health and healing? International speaker Rob Gilbert says, “In my own experience I’ve found that prayer and a deep understanding of God is a reliable way to maintain health and experience healing.”
Gilbert will present a talk titled, “God and Health” at 2 p.m., Sunday, March 24, at the Lynnwood Convention Center, 3711 196th St. SW, Lynnwood.

“This lecture corrects misconceptions often held about God and shows the nature of God, divine Love, to be a consistent healing Principle,” says Gilbert. “The ideas shared in this lecture will break down the long held beliefs that assign the body to material theories of medicine and the mind to religion, thus hiding the power of spiritual understanding to heal.
“Exploring the early investigations of Mary Baker Eddy in the mind/body relationship, not unlike investigations going on today, reveals the path that eventually led her to the discovery of Christian Science and the practice of spiritual healing that corrects misconceptions about God, secures health, and restores the body.”
Gilbert’s ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
