Subject:  Love

The Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, have been designated the Pastors of Christian Science.  They are our only preachers.

Each Sunday Christian Science churches around the world share the same sermon on one of 26 topics. The sermon consists of readings from the Bible followed by passages from the textbook that explain and corroborate the Bible texts. The world-wide community of Christian Scientists study these passages during the week prior to each Sunday and endeavor to use the spiritual truths contained therein to enrich and heal their lives.

The subject of this week’s Lesson is Love. 

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar:  for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

(The KJV Bible – I John 4: 8, 20)

Clear the Clutter: A New Year’s Resolution   Leave a comment

A Christian Science Perspective by Patricia Hardee

Many a closet and even a few garages get an upgrade. But as a student of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy, I know the best New Year’s resolutions begin with spiritual renewal.

Where to start? What must come first? Mental clutter, which I’ve come to know as matter-based thinking and its effect of sickness and sin. In the chapter titled “Christian Science Practice” in Science and Health, Mrs. Eddy wrote: “Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously” (p. 392).

This mental clearing takes spiritual know-how and mental discipline, … read more …

Let All Within Me Sing   Leave a comment

shutterstock_83580832Let All Within Me Sing – Readings from the Bible and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

Title for these reading was taken from hymn 462 in the Christian Science Hymnal:

When my days are much too busy to find where prayer fits in, / There’s a timeless prayer I can always pray: / Simply praising Him. / Praise the creator. Let all within me sing! / For that’s what I am made to do, and stillness it will bring.

Every Wednesday at 6.00 pm a Testimony Meeting is held at the Christian Science Church in Canberra.  Each meeting begins with readings selected from the two books designated as the Pastor of Christian Science: The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  A new topic for the readings is selected each week.

At the conclusion of the short readings the congregation is invited to share thoughts on this topic and relate how they have used the principles of Christian Science to solve life’s problems and bring physical healing.

If you are in Canberra on any Wednesday please join us. Everyone is welcome.

This recording represents the readings on the topic:  Let All Within Me Sing.
