Attend a Lecture in Guilford, Friday, December 19 at 7:30PM

Looking for peace and direction in your life? Explore the Christmas message.

In our busy lives today, we long for much more than the demands, uncertainties and fears of human existence. International speaker Julie Ward says, "In my own experience I’ve found that as I make room for moments of stillness, listening to God, I find increased harmony and peace."

Ward will present a talk titled, "Living in the Heart of Bethlehem" on Friday, December 19, 2014, 7:30pm at the First Church of Christ, Scientist, 49 Park Street, Guilford, CT on the Guilford Green.

"In this talk I will explore how cultivating the habit of listening to God for all our decisions, however small, brings harmony and healing to our lives," says Ward. "I will thoughtfully explore the words to ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’ highlighting the qualities of thought that prepare us to welcome Christmas in our hearts throughout the year."

From childhood, Julie Ward loved to dance. She danced with a small regional company and eventually became its associate director and choreographer. She taught jazz and ballet to everyone from the tiniest little ones to the professional class. Dancing taught her to value discipline, obedience, and persistence—foundational qualities for the practice of Christian Science. Friends and family began asking her to pray for them and her healing practice was born. Ward is now a full-time practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing. As member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, Ward travels from her home in Atlanta, Georgia.

Following Julie’s talk, will be a brief concert of Christmas music led by pianist and composer, Chad Hardin of Guilford. Guests vocalists: Susan Yankee, mezzo-soprano and Mike Gracco, baritone. Susan and Mike will join Chad in the verses of O Little Town of Bethlehem throughout Julie’s talk, and will then solidify the Christmas message of the evening in song.

Susan Yankee has performed the Mezzo-soprano repertoire across the country, including two solo appearances at Carnegie Hall.
