Wednesday Testimony Meeting:
Every week we hold a meeting, currently online only, at 8pm 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:
The subject of this week's Lesson-Sermon is, 'Reality.'
Two citations give a flavour of what this lesson is about. From the Bible: '..... I saw a new heaven and a new earth:..... and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: (Revelation 21). And from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, (573) 'Take heart, dear sufferer, for this reality of being will surely appear sometime and in some way. There will be no more pain, and all tears will be wiped away. When you read this, remember Jesus' words, "The kingdom of God is within you." This spiritual consciousness is therefore a present possibility.'
The lesson explains 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. A recording of the service will be available on our website until Wednesday evening.
