$ dreamstime_10813042This recording is of the readings, on the topic, Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men, which formed part of the Testimony Meeting in Canberra on Wednesday 13 December.  Citations were taken from the Bible (King James version) and from the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

The title of the readings is taken from hymn 310 from the Christian Science Hymnal:

Sing, ye joyous children, sing. / Glorious is the Christ, our king, / Truth has come again to earth, /  Through the lowly Saviour’s birth. / Men and angels, anthems raise;  / Hymns of joy and shouts of praise. / Hear th’ angelic song again: / Peace on earth, good will to men. / Sing, ye joyous children, sing, / Glorious is the Christ, our king.

If you are in Canberra on any Wednesday please join us at 6.00 pm – our Testimony Meetings are open to everyone.  We are located on the corner of Macquarie and Bligh Streets, Barton in the ACT.

Embrace life changes! It’s good for your health.   Leave a comment

dreamstime_355292Like the weather, some changes in life are unpredictable. They can be surprising, unforeseen – like suddenly being promoted at work, or becoming a parent for the first time. While a life-changing event can be exciting, others can be hard to cope with – especially if they’re unexpectedly thrust upon you. One way to deal with stormy life-changing events, is to change up one’s thinking, take positive action and embrace life changes! Doing so is good for your health.

EMBRACE CHANGE

When something you’ve loved is snatched away, feelings of hurt and disappointment can rain down upon you. You wonder how to carry on. When this happens, it’s time to use the umbrella of spiritual-type thinking to shelter your heart, restore peace of mind and move you forward to happiness and healing.

TIPS:

Rather than standing under the grey clouds of disappointment and discouragement, lift up your thinking. Have courage. Embrace the change. Open your heart and welcome the good that lies ahead.

– Don’t begrudge the experience of a life change. Instead, focus on what you’ve gained, rather than what you’ve been forced to give up.

– Remember with thankfulness all that you’ve achieved, and what you can still do, and be.

– Realize that change doesn’t end things. Look past any unhappiness to the new opportunities that lie ahead. Change can be a stepping-stone to fresh prospects.

– Weather a stormy life-change. Be brave. Work on, and await the outcome. You can “steer safely amid the storm”. Mary Baker Eddy – Science and Health p.67

– Be encouraged, strengthened and reassured. You have within you the spiritual qualities of buoyancy, adaptability, and resilience. You will bounce back. You’ve been created to be mentally and emotionally strong. You can handle changed circumstances with grace and poise, and be triumphant.

– Let this poem comfort and help you embrace life changes. You’ll find it’s good for your health.

“In heavenly Love abiding, No change my heart shall fear; And safe is such confiding, For nothing changes here. The storm may roar without me, My heart may low be laid; But God [divine Love] is round about me, And can I be dismayed?

Green pastures are before me, Which yet I have not seen; Bright skies will soon be o’er me, Where darkest clouds have been. My hope I cannot measure, My path in life is free; My Father has my treasure, And He will walk with me.” Anna L. WaringIn heavenly love abiding.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, …  It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.  (The Bible – Proverbs 3: 5, 6, 8)

Stand porter at the door of thought.  Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously. (Science and Health p392)

The Getting of Wisdom – the Path from Sense to Soul – Readings from the Bible and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

When wisdom entered into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee. (Prov 2: 10, 11)

The finite must yield to the infinite.  Advancing to a higher plane of action, thought rises from the material sense to the spiritual, from the scholastic to the inspirational, and from the mortal to the immortal.  (Science and Health p256: 1-5)

Hearing the ‘Still Small Voice’ in the Face of the Storm   Leave a comment

shutterstock_78699079A Christian Science perspective:  Praying for safety during stormy weather.

by Allison J. Rose-Sonnesyn

On a cross-country move several years ago, a friend and I were driving across South Dakota when a weather report announced that a massive supercell thunderstorm was right behind us, following our route to the hotel we booked part way across the state.  The situation was quite serious, as tornadoes were expected to accompany the storm, and we were very exposed.

For a few moments, I felt afraid.  But I have learned through my study of Christian Science that as children of God – which all of us are – we are never truly helpless.  … Read more …

In this article, Hearing the ‘Still Small Voice’ in the Face of the Storm, Allison describes the prayer that brought a sense of peace and safety during a dangerous storm.  This article was originally published in the CS Perspective feature of the Christian Science Monitor.
