The Faith That Heals   Leave a comment

Wednesday Testimony Readings

  

  … your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. (The Bible – I Corinthians 2: 5)

.

The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p1: 1-4)

.

There is a Higher Law   1 comment

By Charlene Anne Miller

From the March 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As I sat in my attorney’s office, he stated that the ultimate outcome of my case depended solely on which judge I was assigned. The judge’s personal bias would either undermine or help my case. But as he spoke, a spiritual intuition firmly overrode his opinion with conviction and authority. I heard through spiritual sense, almost as clearly as if someone present had spoken, “There is a higher law!”

Many of us have experienced difficulties that challenge our faith in justice. Through my very modest experience, I discovered that justice results from acknowledging and applying the higher spiritual law, God’s ever-present law of harmony, to our situation. Then we find that no person or circumstance can thwart justice, because we understand that all power rests on the side of God, good. In fact, justice and mercy are attributes of God.

Universal Love: Roadmap to a Less Violent World   Leave a comment

by Chet Manchester

.

Recent mass shootings and other violent events around the world have left countless people once again feeling helpless and vulnerable. There’s an immediate and heartfelt desire within many, including me, to pray for the victims of such crimes. How can we pray in a way that severs the very roots of violence? What can help preempt more violence? And how can we cultivate a totally different way of thinking and living?

The roots of violent acts are, in essence, violent thoughts. Long before a trigger is pulled and bullets are fired, angry and hateful thoughts and feelings knock at the door of individual consciousness. …

… Most of us shut and lock the doors of our homes, especially at night. In the same way, we can each be alert to our thoughts and refuse to let anything enter that does not align with Love, God. In this way, we will begin to effectively arrest evil thoughts and intentions before they can operate.

Is It Possible to Change the World for the Better?   Leave a comment

In a world of increasing tensions, where solutions can be hard to come by, and instability is often the norm, it might seem that there’s very little an individual can do to make things better. At every turn, it seems we’re up against circumstances, or people, beyond our control. But in this interview the guests talk about how they have found that a turnaround for the better is neither unlikely nor unusual, when problems are approached from a spiritual standpoint. Hear how troubling situations were reversed and resolved through the power of God.
