Christian Science: A spiritual revolution
John Tyler, Speaker
There is revolution going on in many aspects of our lives these days – in our politics, media, science and even in our personal lives. But there is a revolution, less in the headlines, but many times more important: it is a spiritual revolution which presents a new understanding of God – where we come from, and what is the basis of our existence.

36th Church of Christ Scientist in Studio City presented this talk by international speaker John Tyler on this radical topic. Tyler is a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing.
John Tyler started his professional life working briefly as a labor organizer to protect exploited sweatshop workers. As a social activist he was concerned with solving “all the world’s problems.” He was involved in spiritual counseling of inmates in a state penitentiary. To help end the Cold War, he felt we must understand the underlying issues and build institutions to solidify a just society. He became research director of the Istituto Atlantico in Milan, Italy. Then, having earned degrees from schools on both sides of the Atlantic – at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques, Paris, and Princeton University, USA – he taught political science at Princeton and at the University of Pittsburgh. While teaching at the University of Pittsburgh, he founded a residence for students that seeks to heal racial divisions in America. For his involvement in this project he received the YWCA’s Racial Justice Award.
Before committing himself to full-time healing work as a Christian Science practitioner, John began to see that it was more important to understand and work within God’s government of the universe, rather than in man’s attempts to govern. This led him to a full-time profession of spiritual healing as a Christian Science practitioner. Despite his love of teaching, he discovered there is nothing as fulfilling as healing through scientific prayer.
