Hegarty presentation Saturday at Cape Coral-Lee County Public Library

Janet Hegarty, a practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will give a free one-hour talk titled, "How to Make Change for the Better" at the Cape Coral-Lee County Public Library, 921 S.W. 39th Terrace, at 11 a.m., Saturday, March 10.

All are welcome.

Hegarty said, "We can find a secure life foundation by discovering the unfailing source of our being. This source is the one, all-good God - not an unpredictable man in the sky who arbitrarily blesses some and condemns others, but life and love itself, the very principle of everything real and good."

Hegarty's ideas come from the Bible and are practiced in a prayer-based method of healing called Christian Science.

This talk is sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist in Cape Coral, located at 2608 Country Club Blvd. Services are held Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. The Wednesday service also includes the opportunity to hear healing experiences. Child care is available at all services.
