Are we really grateful for the good already received? Then we shall avail ourselves of the blessings we have, and thus be fitted to receive more.

Money Worries – A Thing of the Past   Leave a comment

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

When I was growing up money always seemed to be in short supply.  There were many, many evenings when my mum had only toast and Vegemite for dinner because there wasn’t enough food to go around.  As a child I watched my mum, who was normally a strong, calm woman, weep because there was no money for the electricity or to pay for the groceries.  This left me feeling scared and as though life was jeopardous.  I felt as though I was vulnerable to forces outside of my control. 

As an adult I seemed to take many of these fears about finances and supply with me.  Even though I had full employment, and sometimes more than one job, for many years I felt as though I was always borrowing from Peter to pay Paul; shuffling money around in order to pay the most pressing bills.  There came a time when the burden of school fees and a mortgage was more than I could manage and we sold our house and moved to a smaller place further out.  Still there never seemed to be quite enough. 

In my study of Christian Science I had learned that all right ideas were God’s and that God as the divine Father-Mother supplied all that was necessary for those ideas to come to fruition.  I had also learned that supply and demand were a part of the one Principle (a synonym for God) governing all; they were reciprocal and inseparable processes.  One day I sat myself down and decided that it was time to let go of this false fear.  I asked myself whether I really believed these spiritual statements and believed that God was my loving parent who knew and responded to my needs, or not.  I had, over the years, had many other healings both of physical and work-related problems that showed me that God was real, and that the love of God was a principle to be counted on.  I reviewed the evidence I had of this divine care and I decided that I did really trust in these truths.  When I reasoned like this the fear seemed to melt away and it felt as though this huge burden of many years had been lifted off me.

From this time on I never again struggled to pay the bills.  The money coming into the home had not changed and the outgoings remained the same but somehow when bills arrived there was always enough to meet them.  Nowadays, I don’t worry at all about how much is, or isn’t, in my bank account.  I know, because I have proved it, that if there is a need God will meet it.  I have discovered that divine Love (another name for God) has a multitude of ways in which to meet the human need.  This sense of God’s sure supply has given me a freedom that allows me to be generous towards others, to support worthy causes and so share Love’s wonderful abundance.  I continue, every day, to be grateful to God, and to Christian Science which teaches me the power of spiritual reasoning.

My Shepherd is Beside Me and Nothing Can I Lack   1 comment

shutterstock_111653231This recording is of the readings on the topic:  My Shepherd is Beside Me, and Nothing Can I Lack, which formed part of the Testimony Meeting in Canberra. Citations were taken from the Bible (King James Version) and the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

The title of readings is taken from a line in hymn 148 from the Christian Science Hymnal:

Wherever He may guide me, / No want shall turn me back; / My Shepherd is beside me, / And nothing can I lack. / His wisdom ever waketh, / His sight is never dim; / He knows the way He taketh, / And I will walk with Him. / …

Bright skies will soon be o’er me, / Where darkest clouds have been. … / My Father has my treasure, / And He will walk with me.

If you are in Canberra on any Wednesday please join us at 6.15 pm – our Testimony Meetings are open to everyone.  We are located on the corner of Macquarie and Bligh Streets, Barton in the ACT.

Needs Met   1 comment

dreamstime_10874750The Christian Science Church – a part of the Canberra community.  Members share testimonies and talk about their lives as Christian Scientists. 

This article, Needs Met, is by Mary who is a member of the Christian Science Church in Canberra.  She describes how a change of thinking to a more spiritual perspective saw finance problems solved and employment found.

We lived in Germany for almost a year and during this time neither my husband or I was allowed to work there because we did not have the necessary permission.  Our funds had been used up on rent and living expenses.  Three of our six children were apprentices and the other three were at school. Things were very tight and our need was great.

One morning my husband asked me to look for a document in a cupboard where we kept all our paper work.  I was not looking forward to this task because there was so much paper in this cupboard.  Then the thought struck me that there must be a reason for this, and who knows perhaps I will find something else in the cupboard.  This was time to put into practice what I have learnt in Christian Science.

 My thought turned to a passage in Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy (p180: 25): “When man is governed by God, the ever-present Mind who understands all things, man knows that with God all things are possible”.  This made me sit back and take notice.  Here I was resenting the thought that I had to unpack the cupboard I kept the thought that “with God all things are possible” while I unpacked the cupboard.  Suddenly, there was my wallet which I had not used since flying to Germany.  I opened the back flap, and to my delight I found A$2000 of travellers’ cheques.  I could not stop thanking God for His guidance and love for his children.  I also found the document my husband was looking for.

The same afternoon I went to the bank to change the cheques and we could pay our rent and buy what we needed for the rest of the month.

Within two weeks both my husband and I found work and got our permissions to work in Germany.

How grateful I am for Christian Science and Mary Baker Eddy for giving us this practical and demonstrable religion.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
