Deliver Me from “the Violent Man”   Leave a comment

This article by Judy Cole was originally published in the August 29, 2022 edition of the Christian Science Sentinel.

With the marked increase in violent acts around the world, many are asking how they can keep themselves and their loved ones from being victims of intentional or random acts of violence. Applying in a practical way the knowledge of our God-given exemption from evil was important in my work as a youth corrections counselor. 

Once, as the advisor of a college student intern, I was observing her interaction with a client in an adjoining room. Suddenly, he pulled a knife and threatened her.  …

In this article Judy explains how she disarmed this man and the situation and how through prayer she witnessed an amazing turn around in this young man. Click here to read, or listen to, the full text of this article.

Pressure of Workload Overcome   1 comment

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

A poem by Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, helped this writer over come the stress of a crowded work agenda. The poem, titled Satisfied, has been set to music and included in the Christian Science Hymnal.

It matters not what be thy lot,
So Love doth guide;
For storm or shine, pure peace is thine,
Whate’er betide.

And of these stones, or tyrants’ thrones,
God able is
To raise up seed — in thought and deed —
To faithful His.

Aye, darkling sense, arise, go hence!
Our God is good.
False fears are foes — truth tatters those,
When understood.

Love looseth thee, and lifteth me,
Ayont hate’s thrall:
There Life is light, and wisdom might,
And God is All.

The centuries break, the earth-bound wake,
God’s glorified!
Who doth His will — His likeness still —
Is satisfied.

Towards the end of my employment with the Department of Education.  I had a very busy job; most weeks I put in 50-60 hours and still didn’t feel on top of the workload.  One evening a friend gave me a ticket to a Music Aviva concert because he thought I could do with a break.  However, my head was so filled with all the tasks I had to complete in the next few weeks that I heard nothing of the music and went home feeling still very much under pressure.  At home I sat down and made a list of all the activities I had to organise before the end of the school term which was coming up fast.  I thought this might help clear my head.  In all I had 26 events to organise.  Some were staff meetings I had to give, others were full day workshops and training days, some were mediation and review meetings.  I had very little clerical support so all of the organisation fell to me – the catering, the bookings, the paperwork, the course content. 

Writing it all down didn’t help at all.  While I was doing this my son called me.  He was living interstate at the time.  He asked if I would pray for him with regard to a physical problem that was restricting him somewhat.  Of course I was happy to help him, but it felt like just one more thing that was asked of me.

In desperation I turned to God and asked: ‘How do I do all this?’  The answer was very firm: ‘You don’t. I do.’  This idea had and immediate calming effect.  I felt led to open my hymnal to hymn 160 – Mary Baker Eddy’s Satisfied.  The words were like a balm to my soul.  The ideas held such comfort that straight away I felt the sense of pressure drain away.  I knew I was safe because “God able is”.  I realised that all right activities were God’s activities, and He was the one that brought them to fruition, not me.

It was the fourth verse that particularly stood out to me:

Love looseth thee, and lifteth me,
Ayont hate’s thrall:
There Life is light, and wisdom might,
And God is All.

As I read these words I felt lifted above the human picture that said I had an impossibly crowded agenda.  I actually felt the lightness of Life – lightness as in not heavy.   I also saw that Love loosed my son from his belief of restriction.  I was able to let all sense of personal responsibility go and rested in God’s love.

The next day I had a phone call from my son to say the physical problem was completely resolved.  He was very pleased.  All the activities I had scheduled were completed successfully and I can honestly say there was not a moment of pressure or stress.  Every event or activity was a joy in its preparation and unfoldment.  Not since that night have I ever felt pressure over human activities or schedules again.  Always now I know that ‘Love doth guide’ and ‘God is gloried’ and I am satisfied.

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.

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.

Comments from a Reader   1 comment

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)
