Recently our church joined with other Churches of Christ, Scientist in the Chicago area and sponsored a couple events for inmates in two prison facilities. Ricardo Saldivar, a local speaker from The Christian Science Board of Lectureship, spoke. The ideas he shared resonated with both audiences, so much so that more than 75 people obtained their first copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the seminal text by author Mary Baker Eddy about the practical application of spirituality.
Ricardo’s talk is available online. If you would like to watch it click on the image below [68 min]:

Sharing Sacred Spaces
October 2011 – June 2012
organized by the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions
This past year Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist participated with seven other religious and spiritual communities in a program designed to engage religious diversity and widen participation in interreligious activity across the Chicago metropolitan area. Each month one of the eight places of worship opened their doors to extend hospitality to visitors from the general public. Through these visits to places where people pray, worship, engage in religious practices and celebrate life’s events, visitors were invited to listen, learn and connect with one another. For complete information on the year long program, download the Sharing Sacred Spaces Booklet.
Our church hosted its open house on Sunday, March 18, 2012. CLICK HERE to view a slideshow of the event.
All eight open houses have taken place as has the wrap up Sacred Sacred Solidarity Event on Chicago’s Federal Plaza. CLICK HERE to view a video of the final gathering.

Last spring, our community joined with Second Church of Christ, Scientist in Chicago in sponsoring a citywide anti-violence prayer meeting at Chicago Temple. The event was deeply moving and stirred attendees to continue to pray and support our fellow Chicagoans who are actively working to nullify violence in our city and beyond. One report after the prayer meeting is as follows:
In addition to last spring’s prayer meeting, May’s Midwest Church Alive Summit held in Chicago at the InterContinental O’Hare was a feast of ideas and fellowship. All the program’s content, including videos of the sessions and ideas from the breakout sessions, are available online at www.christianscience.com.
