About The Speaker:

Faith healing, Prayer, Spirituality in Raleigh, North Carolina

Pleasant Gap, Pennsylvania USA and Tokyo, Japan — Fujiko Signs comes from Tokyo, Japan and has a family, husband and two daughters working in the US.

She is a student, practitioner, and teacher of Christian Science. She studies the relationship between prayer and healing, consciousness and reality, spirituality and wellbeing. Her job is to find out how we can free ourselves from various limitations.

While her husband’s job took Fujiko across the United States, she worked as a market research consultant for computer manufacturing companies and taught Japanese language and literature at community colleges and universities. She also taught dance to children.

In her mid-thirties, Fujiko fell ill and sought healing through different treatments, but none of them gave her a lasting cure. One day, to her surprise, she found that the healing of Christ Jesus was possible now and learnable. As soon as she started reading about this system of healing in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, a respected American healer and religious leader, she was relieved from various symptoms that had limited her before. As she studied and learned more about Christian Science, she witnessed many healings within her family and circle of friends and eventually received requests to assist others with prayer.

After becoming a Christian Science practitioner, she was asked to talk with doctors and nurses about patients with a desire to practice non-traditional medicine, including prayer and meditation. She also volunteered in a community coalition in hopes of encouraging and enhancing communication between different faith groups that sought well-being in the community.

The talk is prefaced with a recent testimony of healing, includes a Q&A section and sometimes concludes with song.

Nate studied perennial religion at Hampshire College where he was introduced to Christian Science healing.  Although he was enamored with the academic exploration of spirituality, what he truly desired most was to practice spirituality in a tangible way — he wanted to experience God and heal others.

After traveling the world for a year and hiking extensively in the Himalayas, Nate came to Boston in 2008 to work for his church, The First Church of Christ Scientist.  Since then, he has served in many capacities, including launching and producing your Daily Lift and Time4Thinkers’ Weekly Musician podcasts. Nate also helped pioneer the online Sunday School at The Mother Church; helped launch a branch church in Jamaica Plain, MA; served as reader, soloist and Sunday School teacher in branch churches; worked as a counselor and wilderness trip leader for six years at Camp Owatonna; has shared the Good News at jails, rehab centers and interfaith-events.  He’s also been widely involved in composing, producing and performing Christian music.

Nate enjoys wayfaring and adventuring, making Christian folk/hip-hop records, and cooking various delicacies with cast iron pans. But he says, “Without comparison, my greatest love, my greatest joy — my mission — is to transform lives and heal the sick through Christianly Scientific prayer.”

All centennial events including Nate Frederick’s lecture will be held at the church which is located at 1400 Hillsborough Street near downtown Raleigh.

SECURE EMPLOYMENT FOR EVERYONE

March 17, 2012 at 3:30 pm – Downtown Raleigh
Center for Community Leadership
711 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh 

 

Betty O’Neal, a former HR professional who is now a Christian Science healer, will be speaking in Raleigh on March 17 on the topic of using prayer and a spiritual perspective to find secure employment. No reason to wait for the economy to turn around… prayer brings practical results! Free talk, free parking & free child care. Open to everyone – come on down!

Secure employment is something that people everywhere are searching for.  National speaker, Betty O’Neal, says, “Prayer is the key factor that opens thought to see the opportunities that God has provided for each of His children.”

O’Neal, a full-time prayer-based healer using the Christian Science system of healing, will present a talk titled, “Secure employment for everyone,” on March 17 at 3:30 pm at the Center for Community Leadership, 711 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh (corner of Hillsborough and St. Mary’s).

“This lecture gives listeners comfort and assurance that in God’s universe there is enough good for everyone and that includes enough secure employment,” says O’Neal.  “Through understanding God’s plan and purpose secure employment is found.  I will share many examples of how prayer transformed thought and brought unexpected opportunities.”

During her talk O’Neal references the original sourcebook on Christian healing, the Bible, along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, a book of universal ideas on practical spirituality.

O’Neal was a teenager when she was given some Christian Science magazines. From them she became intrigued by the way God was defined as Love.  Immediately she began to apply what she was learning about God’s love to help her solve the challenges she was facing in her daily life.  Now she rejoices in helping others find solutions to problems through prayer based on the scientific laws of God as a practitioner of Christian Science. She received a Master’s degree in Education from Cambridge College, Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Formerly a human resource professional, O’Neal was also an on-air host for a local Boston television program.  Her former volunteer work includes serving as a mentor and coach for unemployed and underprivileged women. She is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship and travels from her home in Lynn, Massachusetts.
