International speaker Rob Gilbert says, “In my own experience I’ve found that prayer and a deep understanding of God is a reliable way to maintain health and experience healing.”
Mr. Gilbert will present a talk titled, “God and Health” on Monday, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road.
“This lecture corrects misconceptions often held about God and shows the nature of God, divine Love, to be a consistent healing Principle,” Mr. Gilbert says in a press release. “The ideas shared in this lecture will break down the long-held beliefs that assign the body to material theories of medicine and the mind to religion, thus hiding the power of spiritual understanding to heal. Exploring the early investigations of Mary Baker Eddy in the mind/body relationship, not unlike investigations going on today, reveals the path that eventually led her to the discovery of Christian Science and the practice of spiritual healing that corrects misconceptions about God, secures health, and restores the body.”
Mr. Gilbert’s ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Ms. Eddy.
Practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing, Mr. Gilbert, has a master of theology degree from Boston University School of Theology, where he majored in biblical studies. While serving as a chaplain in the United States Army, he had a variety of assignments including military prisons, hospitals, and a tour of duty in Vietnam. He retired from the Army as a lieutenant colonel.
More recently he co-produced two educational videos for medical nursing schools and hospitals, answering commonly asked questions about the practice of spiritual healing, how it informs healthcare decisions, and spirituality in nursing care. Mr. Gilbert has spoken to a variety of medical audiences on the practice of spiritual healing, to college classes in women’s studies and alternative healing, high school classes on the subject of comparative religions, and in jails and prisons. Mr. Gilbert is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. He travels from his home in Upland, Calif.
