Love That Doesn’t Judge   3 comments

Beloved let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar, for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?

(The Bible, NKJV, I John 4: 7, 8, 20)

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

(The Bible, NKJV, – Galatians 3: 28)

Grateful for a Quick Healing   Leave a comment

The members of the Christian Science community in Canberra share their healings and thoughts on Christian Science:

A few weeks ago I went to the movies in the afternoon with my daughter and her friend.

As the movie started, I began to feel unwell. I tried to pray but, found it difficult to shut out the noise and images from the movie and felt worse as the movie progressed.

At the end, I left the cinema as quickly as I could and found a place to throw up.

My daughter and her friend didn’t know anything about this and drove to my place to join my other daughter and her family for an evening meal with us.

When I arrived home, I told everyone I wasn’t feeling well enough to eat and went and lay down. I took some Christian Science Journals and the textbook of Christian Science, Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  I started reading the March Journal and came across an article by Mary Beattie: “Truth Communicates Itself”.  I became absorbed reading this and other articles and suddenly realised about an hour later that I was hungry. I was totally healed.  I am very grateful for what I am learning in Christian Science.

Thy Presence Ever Goes with Me   Leave a comment

Wednesday Testimony Meeting readings

This recording is of the readings on the topic: Thy Presence Ever Goes with Me

.

I love Thy way of freedom, Lord,
To serve Thee is my choice,
In Thy clear light of Truth I rise
And, listening for Thy voice,
I hear Thy promise old and new,
That bids all fear to cease:
My presence still shall go with thee
And I will give thee peace.

(Hymn 136 from the Christian Science Hymnal – words by Violet Hay)

A Hymn of Comfort   Leave a comment

I look to Thee in every need,
And never look in vain;
I feel Thy touch, eternal Love,
And all is well again:
The thought of Thee is mightier far
Than sin and pain and sorrow are.

Thy calmness bends serene above,
My restlessness to still;
Around me flows Thy quickening life
To nerve my faltering will:
Thy presence fills my solitude;
Thy providence turns all to good.

Embosomed deep in Thy dear love,
Held in Thy law, I stand:
Thy hand in all things I behold,
And all things in Thy hand.
Thou leadest me by unsought ways,
Thou turn’st my mourning into praise.

.

Hymn 134 from the Christian Science Hymnal words by Samuel Longfellow.

How Do We Love God?   Leave a comment

.

.

Simply asking that we may love God will never make us love Him; but the longing to be better and holier, expressed in daily watchfulness and in striving to assimilate more of the divine character, will mould and fashion us anew, until we awake in His likeness.

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p4)

A Sentinel Watch interview with Alexandre Fischer

.

In this lively interview Alexandre is asked about how he prays when he has a challenge to overcome. He explains how when his prayers seemed less than effective he learned to focus more on listening to God rather than telling God. He gives some interesting examples from his own life that demonstrate how effective prayer can be.
