Praying for the World   Leave a comment

Persistent Peace by DEANNA MUMMERT From The Christian Science Journal

Deanna offers clear ideas on how loving both our neighbours and our enemies is the path to peace at home — and in the world.

DISTURBED BY TV IMAGES OF BOMBED BUILDINGS, fear-stricken faces of civilians, and brave soldiers rescuing children from smoked-filled streets, I prayed. The images contrasted sharply against the peaceful sway of the hammock outside my kitchen window. I asked myself: At what point around the earth does the clear blue sky end and the exhaust of war begin? What can I do for peace? What possible difference can I make? What would Jesus do? Actually, What did Jesus do? …

… What if you and I persistently followed Jesus’ example of taking care of the so-called little things? Our day-to-day interactions, our family differences, our frustrations with people at our jobs or on the street—what if we were to see them as opportunities to bring peace to our world? I don’t mean superficially. …

… Peace happens when we forgive and understand that loving each other is virtually the same as loving God.

Be a Circuit Breaker   Leave a comment

A Daily Lift by Jutter Hudson, a Christian Science nurse

In this 3 minute talk Jutter describes how she used the idea of a circuit breaker to interrupt the constant flow of disturbing news regarding the pandemic and other world events. This helped her handle these ideas calmly and enabled her to feel she could be a force for good in the world. She gives an example of a healing of a family member that resulted from this circuit-breaking thinking.

A new 3 minute inspirational talk is shared each day Monday-Friday. To listen to more click on the Daily Lift tab in the menu above.
