Millstone or Milestone   Leave a comment

A short poem by Peter J. Henniker-Heaton … food for thought:

A millstone or a milestone,
Which shall it be?
Shall I hang it heavy around my neck
And drag it along with me,
Or stand it up by the roadside
To mark one more victory?

This poem was originally published in the January 29, 1966 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel.

A couple of weeks ago I was looking at this Canberra blog site and found a list of testimonies.  The first one caught my attention because it featured chooks and I love chooks.  The testifier told of gathering eggs from her chook run and then stepping on to a rusty nail amidst the chook manure.  She became quite fearful having heard of the claims of tetanus.  She then explained how she came to a healing conclusion as a result of her life-long study of Christian Science

A couple of days later I was walking around the house in socks and I felt a sharp pain in my foot.  There was a rusty needle embedded in it. My thoughts went on fast forward.  Then I thought, “what about that testimony you read?’  I read it again and gradually the fear began to subside but lingered a little.

The next day I joined a Zoom testimony meeting at the Christian Science church in Redcliffe, Queensland.  A lady told of pruning roses and of a thorn becoming embedded in her arm.  It looked quite ominous but she prayed diligently and after a few days all was well.  After listening to that testimony all fear completely vanished.


The next day my cat came home with a battered face and there were puncture wounds.  He had obviously been in a fight.  I couldn’t take him to the vet as I didn’t  have use of a car.  I got some water and cotton wool and he pushed me away as if to say, “You’re not washing my face!”   I said to him this has all been proven, well and truly – by the testifiers in Canberra and in Redcliffe and my own experience and you are not the exception to the rule. The next morning he went out and was gone all day and didn’t come back till after dark.  It was apparent that the healing was going forward quickly and in no time there was no evidence of the wound.

Thanks to your church for putting the testimonies on your web site.  Thanks to the testifiers from your church and Redcliffe and for my own healing.  And thanks to  Gussy for being proof that “All of God’s creatures moving in the harmony of Science are harmless, useful, indestructible.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p514)

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. (John 1: 17)

“All Tears Will Be Wiped Away”   Leave a comment

An article from the Christian Science Sentinel by Caryl Emra Farkas

A few minutes after hearing a voice mail saying that my father had passed on, I got a call from someone who wasn’t in the habit of calling out of the blue. It was my Christian Science teacher, and I was so grateful that he listened to this spiritual intuition and rang me. 

I answered through tears because I was so overwhelmed with my sense of loss. …

In this article Caryl describes how she overcame what seemed like an all-consuming sense of loss. She learned that overcoming the sadness didn’t mean that she loved her dad less but it enabled her to see him everywhere by recognising the presence of the qualities that he expressed.
