How can I grow spiritually?

Live audio chat with Barbara Pettis, C.S.B.

Barbara begins this chat by defining what it means in Christian Science to grow spiritually, which she says is about growing in our spiritual understanding of God. She says that when we know God spiritually and understand God as Spirit, divine Mind, Life, Truth, and Love, and recognize that God is with us everywhere, then “we’re able to feel His presence and turn to Him when there’s a need, turn to Him in prayer, and find the answers to whatever problem we’re facing.”

Barbara answers a number of questions from listeners about how any one of us can grow spiritually, about how we can consistently feel God’s presence, and how we can find great joy in making our relationship with God a priority in our daily lives. She addresses the connection between spiritual growth and healing, including healing physical ills, relationship problems, and overcoming past traumas. And she talks about how to have a spiritual breakthrough as a result of our deeply consecrated practice of spirituality.
