The Christian Science church in Darien and CS church in Westport co-host two talks - one in English and another in Spanish - at Norwalk Community College on 4/27Christian Science Lecturer Enrique Smeke, CSB, to Present Two Talks at Norwalk Community College on April 27
The Christian Science churches in Darien and Westport are jointly sponsoring two talks given by Enrique Smeke, CSB, on Saturday, April 27 in the GenRe Forum at the East Campus of Norwalk Community College, 188 Richards Avenue. The talk, entitled “Are Your Ready to Take the First Step,” will first be presented in English at 2:00 p.m., followed by the same talk in Spanish at 3:30 p.m.
His lecture focusses on how to turn to God and choose the best approach to handling every challenge that confronts us in our daily experience. How can we take that first step towards a more harmonious relationship with friends or relatives? And what is that connection with God that enables us to enjoy better, more stable health? Where can we turn when faced with a financial crisis or lack of employment? It may seem difficult to break through resentment, self-doubt, self-pity, or fear; sometimes we may feel stuck in a problem and can’t see how to advance forward, but God’s loving guidance is always at hand.
In this talk you will hear how to take that first step towards a solution. When we find ourselves in difficult situations, God is there to support and guide us. And as we look to Him for help, we witness how God unfolds the path to resolution.
Mr. Smeke will illustrate how the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, can show us the way out of any difficulty. Highlights of his lecture include an explanation of how God keeps an open channel of communication with every one of us that we all can access to find inspiration, healing, and progress in our lives. He will show us how to pray by reasoning with the heart and letting God have the last word, which will help each of us to discover that we all have been graced with a unique path in life which God unfolds as we advance spiritually.
Mr. Smeke was raised in Argentina, where his early studies included telecommunications, electrical engineering, and journalism. He eventually came to the United States, where he graduated from Principia College in 1983 with a degree in Business Administration. Since then he has worked for the Christian Science Church in Boston in a variety of capacities, including the Spanish radio and print editions of the Christian Science Herald. In 2007, he became a full-time Christian Science practitioner, who are people devoted to assisting patients in healing any difficulty. In 2012, he earned a designation as a Christian Science Teacher. Currently, he resides in Newburyport, MA.
