The question of time and healing   1 comment

$ dreamstime_11095603“Now is the right time to listen, the day to be helped. Don’t put it off” 

The Message: (II Corinthians 6:2, Eugene Peterson). 

“What truly matters—what in fact is absolutely necessary—is a change of thought from materiality to spiritual Truth. And though this mental and spiritual transformation may take diligent as well as patient prayer, it never requires time.

We’re always thinking. And although at times it might take persistence to yield material thoughts for those that are more spiritual, it certainly requires no more time to think a true, spiritual thought than to entertain a false, limiting, or material one. Every moment we have a choice about what we allow ourselves to mentally entertain. So the question for us becomes, What are we paying attention to—what are we seeing, acknowledging, and accepting as real, powerful, and true here and now?…..

The Faith that Heals   Leave a comment

This recording is of the readings on the topic, The Faith that Heals, that formed part of the Wednesday Testimony Meeting at the Christian Science Church in Canberra this week (12 July 2017).

The readings are from the The Bible – King James Version and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

 

 … the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; … (The Bible – James 5: 15)

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)

A Testimony Meeting is held every Wednesday at 6.00 pm.  A new topic is introduced each week and members of the congregation are encouraged to share their own thoughts on this topic and to tell how they have been helped and healed by spiritualising thought.

A fuller flourishing   Leave a comment

 

In his book “A Secular Age,” renowned Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor speaks to the tremendous shift in thought that’s taken place over the past several centuries when it comes to belief in God. “[With] the coming of modern secularity…,” he  writes, “for P1000061the first time in history a purely self-sufficient humanism came to be a widely available option.” And yet, Christ Jesus linked flourishing directly to a spiritual source: “I am come that they might have life,and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Contributor Lyle Young cites Mary Baker Eddy, the Monitor’s founder, as one who experienced this flourishing; what she learned from Jesus’ teachings healed her of chronic illness and poverty. A deeper understanding of our true nature as the reflection of infinite, divine Love nurtures a deeper, more abundant flourishing for humanity.
