NEWS AND EVENTS, UPDATED DECEMBER 2012:
REV. DR. CHRISTOPHER BAZEMORE REPUBLISHES ADA B. FAY'S SEMINAL 1920 VOLUME, THE DIVINE SCIENCE BIBLE TEXTBOOK
Earnest students of Divine Science and New Thought will welcome the return of this wonderful metaphysical textbook from near-extinction. The textbook was first published in Denver at the height of the Divine Science movement in 1920 and had reached a point where only a few copies were still extant worldwide. Reproduced from the original text, including all marginal notes, this new edition provides Divine Scientists with a definitive and scholarly interpretation of scripture that is as important for us today as it was at the time of its first publication. Copies of the textbook are available through the United Divine Freedom Church of the Healing Christ in New York City for $30.00, including the cost of mailing. Send your check or money order made payable to UDFCHC to Rev. Will Mercer at 55 West 116th Street, Suite 265, NY, NY 10026. For more information, please reach Rev. Will at 646-753-2959.

It would be great if we could encourage greater communion and contact with one another by sharing current info! Also, if you don't already have a photo and bio displayed on the website, you can forward them to either Rev. Nina Russell or to Rev. Will Mercer. Great if you have an electronic copy of your photo; but we can produce one for you and return your original to you if you'll just send us what you have.
