Suzanne Riedel, an international lecturer, practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing presents a talk titled, “Realizing your Closeness to God.”
Riedel’s presentation shows how practical, effective prayer helps people experience God’s presence in life to challenge fear and find healing. Riedel utilizes the ideas in the original source book on Christian healing, the Bible, along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
Ms. Riedel was introduced to Christian Science in college. After being immediately healed in an emergency, she found a closeness to God she had been searching for which radically altered her view of spiritual possibilities. Through 20 years of secondary teaching, and as a mother raising five children, she relied on Christian Science to heal everything from broken bones to contagion, found protection from robbers, financial and physical crises to rattlesnakes, and found how practical the understanding of God’s influence in her life actually was.
Ms. Riedel earned a masters degree at the University of Texas, Austin. After teaching secondary school English, history and math for 20 years, she worked for six years in national and international communications work in Boston. She has been published in periodicals of The Christian Science Publishing Society, on www.spirituality.com, and in local newspapers. Ms. Riedel speaks internationally as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
