The Wednesday Testimony Meeting:
Every week we hold a meeting at 8pm in the church building which begins with a selection of citations from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, on a topic chosen by the First Reader. The second part of the meeting is open to Christian Scientists to share accounts of healings of every sort, which have resulted from their study and practice of this science. A couple of verses from Psalm 75 describe the fundamental purpose of these meetings: "All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;"
The Sunday Service:
For the benefit of those who are less familiar with our services it might be helpful to explain that our Bible Lessons are based on 26 subjects, which cover the basic teachings of Christian Science. This subject of this week's Lesson Sermon is 'Mind'.
Two citations from the lesson give a flavour of what is to be found in it: "....God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind". (II Timothy 1:7). "God is Mind, and God is infinite; hence all is Mind. On this statement rests the Science of being, amd the Principle of this Science is divine, demonstrating harmony and immortality." (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p492).
The lesson then goes on to explain how this can be understood and demonstrated.
You are very welcome to join us online on Sunday morning at 10.30 when the whole lesson will be read as the sermon. Join us either at the church or on line through the Zoom system.
