In this chat Gary describes the role of the Christ—the spiritual power behind Jesus' healing work—in our lives. He explains the importance of yielding to the Christ—recognizing God's love for us. He also brings out the role of Mary Baker Eddy's book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures in this work. Site visitors respond with healings they have had just from reading the book. Other resources mentioned include Christian Science practitioners, Wednesday evening testimony meetings, and the many healing testimonies published on JSH-Online, which are evidence of Christian healing today.

Gary responds to questions about why Christian Scientists consider physical healing part of their religious beliefs, the role of religion in health care, how to decide when to call a Christian Science practitioner for help with healing, and how to deal with family members' resistance to an individual's desire to trust God. He also gives a brief summary of how the Affordable Care Act may affect Christian Scientists.
