Tom McElroy has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years,helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. He travels from his home base near Boston, MA, to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

Tom McElroy has always loved meeting new people and learning fresh and inspiring ideas. Through his study of Christian Science, he has found that a better understanding of God helps him connect with all kinds of people and to appreciate and enjoy the many diverse expressions of divine Life and Love which fill the globe.

It was his interest in different cultures, people, and ideas that led him to study philosophy at university. During his university years, he was also able to participate in a few study-abroad programs which took him to France, Belize, Vietnam, China, and Tibet. He has now been to every continent but Antarctica. During these travels he experienced many proofs of God’s ever-present care for His global family.

After graduating from university, he obtained a position as the senior loan officer in charge of a mortgage company’s most active branch. At the same time, he also worked with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department as a volunteer chaplain in men’s, women’s, and youth correctional facilities, giving Christian Science services and one-on-one interviews. These experiences gave him many opportunities to rely on and prove the power of God’s laws of goodness and harmony, which govern all of creation and bring immeasurable benefits to all mankind, even in the most adverse situations. He now devotes myself to the fulltime public healing ministry of Christian Science.

While serving on the Board of Lectureship, he has spoken at probation facilities, universities, public schools, churches, and for public service
groups — like those serving homeless and at risk youth — as well as in other general public venues. He gives lectures in both English and French.

In this lecture, sharing examples of healing from his own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Tom McElroy will explain why
Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the
book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Tom McElroy will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, a midnineteenth century woman from New England, who came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Christ Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father” (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For over 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today,
with healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.
