The Umbrella Academy will host a free lecture by Melanie Wahlberg at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 18 at the Umbrella Community Arts Center, 40 Stow St., Concord.
The lecture, titled “Never alone: How Spiritual Ideas Work In Us,” is sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Concord.
Wahlberg originally pursued a career as a college mathematics professor, achieving a doctorate in mathematics. However, she found that when students would come to her office for help with calculus, conversation frequently turned to spirituality after solving the math problems.
Eventually, Wahlberg shifted her career from mathematics professor to full-time Christian Science practitioner.
“When people contact me to pray for them, I reassure them that God loves us deeply, providing fresh ideas about our spiritual nature that wipe away fear and reveal inspired solutions,” Wahlberg said.
“By turning to God for help, we open up to divine ideas to feel the presence of God in tangible ways, ways that change our lives and our health for the better.”
She is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship and travels from her home in Southern California, speaking to audiences throughout the country about Christian Science healing.
