Nicole Virgil, practitioner of Christian Science healing and public speaker, will present her talk, “Be Set Free,” at 3PM on Sun., April 14, 2024, at the Naperville Woman’s Club, 14 S. Washington Street in downtown Naperville.

The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, showing how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science.

The talk is free, open to the community, and sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Naperville.

“Circumstances often present what appear to be significant obstacles to living freely, something that everyone wants to do,” Virgil notes. “In this talk, we will examine liberty from a Biblical perspective; and see how real people today find their freedom from all kinds of physical, emotional and circumstantial restrictions that seem clearly beyond their control.”

Sharing examples of healing from her own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Virgil will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Virgil also will touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, who came to understand, confirm and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father” (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For more than 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, experiencing healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.

Nicole Virgil has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. She travels from her home base near Chicago, Illinois, to speak to audiences as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

‘Be Set Free’ will be presented at the landmark building located at 14 S. Washington Street in downtown Naperville. 

The Naperville Woman’s Club is located at 14 S. Washington Street in downtown Naperville. Free parking is available along Benton Avenue, around Central Park and on streets east of the historic property. Handicapped parking and handicapped access are located at the back of the building.
