PLYMOUTH — The Christian Science Society of Plymouth is hosting a free public talk on Sunday afternoon, December 7th at 2 at the Pease Library, just off the Plymouth Common. The speaker is Tom McElroy and his talk is titled "The Real You – No Limitations".
The talk will discuss how a more spiritual perspective of ourselves can help us overcome challenges that might otherwise seem to define us and our lives. The speaker will explore the concept that limitations relating to our bodies, bank accounts, or past history cannot define who we are, what we can do, or what opportunities are available to us. And he'll give examples of how an awareness of the universal truths regarding our inherent spiritual nature frees us from limiting fears and misconceptions. There is plenty of parking at the library. Free childcare will be available.
After graduating from College Tom ran a branch of a finance bank, and at the same time, volunteered as a prison Chaplain with Los Angeles County Sheriff's department, where he worked with inmates in men's, women's, and youth correctional facilities. Now as a Christian Science practitioner, he talks and prays with people from many different walks of life, in order to help them find spiritually-based solutions to challenges ranging from health and finance issues to relationship difficulties. As a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, Tom has spoken throughout the US and Canada, as well as in Europe, Australia, and Africa. His talks have been shared with groups in prisons, universities, and churches, for public audiences, as well as for governmental organizations such as the Los Angeles County Mental Health Department.
All community members are invited to this thought-provoking talk. For any questions you may call the church phone, 603 536-3997.
