Fujiko Takai Signs, C.S.B.
Love without limit, Life without fear
Fujiko Takai Signs, a student, practitioner, and teacher of Christian Science joins us from Tokyo, Japan. She is a former president of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts. Fujiko studies the relationship between prayer and healing, consciousness and reality, spirituality and well-being. Her goal is to find out how we can free ourselves from various limitations.
While her husband’s job took Fujiko across the United States, she worked as a market research consultant for computer manufacturing companies and taught Japanese language and literature at community colleges and universities. She also taught dance to children.
In her mid-thirties, Fujiko fell ill and sought healing through different treatments, but none of them gave her a lasting cure. One day, to her surprise, she found that the healing of Christ Jesus was possible now and learnable. As soon as she started reading about this system of healing in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, a respected American healer and religious leader, she was relieved from various symptoms that had limited her before. As she studied and learned more about Christian Science, she witnessed many healings within her family and circle of friends and eventually received requests to assist others with prayer.
After becoming a Christian Science practitioner, she was asked to talk with doctors and nurses about patients with a desire to practice non-traditional medicine, including prayer and meditation. She also volunteered in a community coalition in hopes of encouraging and enhancing communication between different faith groups that sought well-being in the community.
Melanie Walhberg, C.S.
Never Alone: How Spiritual Ideas Work in Us
In the middle of difficult circumstances, it would be so reassuring to feel supported in our efforts for progress, instead of feeling alone. In this talk, Melanie discusses what she’s found helpful in her practice of Christian Science healing: that God loves us deeply, is an active presence of good in our lives, and provides fresh ideas about our spiritual nature that wipe away fear and reveal inspired solutions.
By turning to God for help, we open up to divine ideas and feel the presence of God in tangible ways, ways that change our lives and our health for the better. She calls this healing.
During the talk, Melanie will explore God as Spirit, Love, and Mind, rather than as a man-like figure making arbitrary decisions about our lives. This divine Mind is the one source of all good and true ideas. So God’s thoughts remind us of our spiritual identity, guide us to express more love, and show us our divine intelligence.
She will talk about Christ Jesus’ teachings in the Bible as being the best example of how to heal by listening to these ideas. And she delves into Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, as the explanation of Christian Science healing based on Christ Jesus’ life. Melanie will give examples of how this healing approach has transformed lives, including a mother and her infant daughter who experienced physical healing. The mother said, “It felt like the ideas themselves did the work.”
Andrew Brewis, London, England
Becoming a writer and performer of hymns and inspirational Christian music is something that Andrew says really “found me”, and now it’s part of who he is. The more he writes, the more he discovers how music can spiritually prod and poke us: stirring, awakening and ultimately healing. It brings blessings every day, and he loves few things more than being able to share these melodies, harmonies and healing messages with anyone who’ll listen. Eight of his compositions have been published in the new Christian Science Hymnal used in churches all over the world. Andrew’s assessment of this achievement is that “it is as exciting as it is humbling”.
