Speaker to discuss the physical science of Biblical teachings

MONROE - Mary Alice Rose will present "The Science of Christianity" at 2 p.m. May 19 at First Church of Christ, Scientist, 1411 10th St. The talk will draw parallels between how physical scientists approach the subjects they study and how individuals approach the study of Christian Science.

Her ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible and as discussed in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Rose's interest in science and technology led to a 20-year career in applied physical science. She has worked as a meteorologist for the National Severe Storms Laboratory and as a manager who developed the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope. She is an authorized teacher of Christian Science and a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
