Kari Mashos, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing, will present a public talk, “Counteracting terrorism—the global reach of prayer” in Poulsbo Library’s Lower Level Community Room at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, April 24.

The talk is sponsored by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bainbridge Island.

As a result of world-connectedness today, we are as acutely aware of the events that go on across the globe as we are of those in our own community. In your home, in your community, in your world, your thoughts, your prayers, can make a difference.

International speaker Mashos says, “We can rely on the law of the First Commandment, that there really is only one God, one power, and it is able to unify everyone in the spirit of true brotherhood. When we use this understanding of the one God, one Mind, it acts as a law of protection and it blesses ourselves as well as everyone around us.”

Mashos shares ideas based on the book “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy, and the original sourcebook of Christian healing, the Bible. From her own experiences, she helps audiences explore how to connect more deeply with universal Love to find comfort, safety, and peace.

Mashos has discovered first-hand that prayer can bring safety to any situation and that our prayers are effective clear across the globe.

It was Mashos’ study of the Bible and “Science and Health” that helped her through the feelings of abandonment by her father and the psychological effects of abuse. Mashos was an opera singer for several years and also founded her own opera company to highlight social issues before devoting herself full-time to the practice and teaching of Christian Science healing.

Mashos has appeared live on radio programs in the U.S., U.K. and Australia and was interviewed for the Oklahoma public television documentary, “Chords of Memory.” She is also a frequent contributor to Christian Science publications.

Mashos speaks internationally as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
