The Law of God Annuls Injustice   Leave a comment

There is an urgent need for justice in our world, a justice that includes every individual. The needs of today are pushing us to search deeply for what true impartiality, fairness, and equality mean.

We can gain a deeper sense of justice by considering a more permanent basis for rights; by considering each one’s divine rights and the laws of God that operate to bless all with goodness. … continue reading

Where restitution is needed – no matter how small or large – divine Love’s law is at hand to bring healing and harmony.

In this article the author,  José de Dios Mata, tells of his experience growing up in a dictatorship and how he came to rely on the higher law of Love which transformed his life, resolved unjust legal tangles and healed him physically.

War – An Evil   1 comment

Nothing is gained by fighting, but much is lost.

Peace is the promise and reward of rightness. …

War is in itself an evil, barbarous, devilish. Victory in error is defeat in Truth. War is not in the domain of good; war weakens power and must finally fall, pierced by its own sword.

(The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany by Mary Baker Eddy p278: 21)

Living in God’s ‘Now’   Leave a comment

An article from the Christian Science Monitor by Laura Clayton

Recently a relative said she had been feeling concerned about the future. She had been thinking about a possible move, wondering where and when she and her husband might settle next. We talked about the idea of living in God’s “now” – staying grounded in gratitude for today’s many blessings, joyfully being where we are right at the present moment. After our discussion, she said she immediately felt better, lighter, and more peaceful.

Christ Jesus assured his followers, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself” (Matthew 6:34). The type of living in the present now that brings lasting peace and inspired solutions is not just some clever mental game. It’s a spiritual awakening based on the timeless spiritual fact of our unity with God, good.

In this article Laura goes on to explain the spiritual reasoning she used to find a perfect solution to a family member’s accommodation problem. She concludes: Each of us can wake up to the spiritual reality of today that helps bring a more harmonious tomorrow.

Practical Prayer   Leave a comment

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

Yesterday I had a lovely example of the practicality of prayer as practised in Christian Science.

Ours seemed to be a rather grumpy household last night.

I had spent some hours searching for one piece of information that I needed to send to our accountant for our annual tax return.  I couldn’t find it and had finally contacted the investment company that issued the original document, asking if a new copy could be sent. This communication was sent by email and I received a reply, also by email, that they couldn’t send me the document by email because my email address was not officially on their records – such irony! But even a sense of the ridiculous nature of this response did not ease the sense of frustration I felt as I went around in seemingly never-ending circles.

Then my husband came home, and he had just heard the news that the Canberra lockdown had been extended for another month. As the owner of a small business that depends on customers coming to his premises, he could see no way forward to stay financially viable.

However, after he tramped off to bed, I sat still – something I should have done much earlier – and thought of the verse from the Bible ‘Be still and know that I am God’ (Ps 46).

What I see this as saying is: ‘Just stop running around in circles and thinking you have all the answers, that you have a mortal mind of your own that can actually solve anything. The universe is God’s – God is the only Mind and keeps all the wheels running smoothly if we get out of His way. Ask God what He/She knows about the situation and listenfor the answer.’ And I did.

In a very short time, I remembered that I probably had received the document I needed and had put it in a special place, ready for the tax return. And there it was. I was able to scan it and send it to the accountant right then and there.

And I found, by checking on guidelines from the ACT Government about the lockdown, that a way forward was possible for my husband’s business.

God really does have the answers – we just need to ask – and I’m very grateful.

A Powerful ‘Daily Prayer’   Leave a comment

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

This article was originally published in the August 2021 edition of the Christian Science Journal. In it the author explains how her son endured several years of severe bullying by a work supervisor. However, when he turned to prayer for a resolution there was an immediate and permanent turn around in the situation.

Now, three years later, even though my son has moved on to another position, these two still have a warm and supportive relationship. My son counts him as a close friend, a confidant who can be relied on, and someone who values him as a person.

Love is the Liberator   Leave a comment

“A few immortal sentences, breathing the omnipotence of divine justice, have been potent to break despotic fetters and abolish the whipping-post and slave market; but oppression neither went down in blood, nor did the breath of freedom come from the cannon’s mouth. Love is the liberator”.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p225) by Mary Baker Eddy
