DARIEN — Prayer can be a trusted and effective means for bringing peace, freedom and healing into everyone’s life, according to Lorenzo Rodriguez, a Christian Science lecturer and spiritual healer. Rodriguez will give a public talk titled “Spiritual Solutions for Desperate Situations”, on May 3 at 7:30 pm at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Darien.” On May 5 Rodriguez will deliver the same talk in Spanish at 11 am at Alexis Hill Montessori School in New Haven and again in English at 2 pm in the Christian Science Reading Room on the New Haven Green.
In his remarks, Rodriguez will show how people from every walk of life have demonstrated the power of God to bring solutions to adversity of every sort. He will describe his own experience in learning to engage the power of God and the divine law of Truth and Love.
“Understanding God as infinite good brings trust in the power of good to help us overcome worry, doubt and fear,” Rodriguez says.
Claiming one’s divine rights as a child of God is empowering and satisfying, he asserts.
Rodriquez’s talk will draw on ideas from the original sourcebook for Christian healing, the Bible, along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, a companion book of universally applicable ideas on practical spirituality that has sold more than ten million copies.
Born in Cuba and raised in Mexico and the US, Rodriguez graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BS in Chemical Engineering. Although he practiced engineering for a time, he felt since childhood that his calling was for the helping professions. He became a pioneer in the field of employment for people with disabilities before dedicating himself to the full-time practice of healing through spiritual means. Rodriguez, a Miami-based teacher of Christian Science and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship , is fluent in English and Spanish.
