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:
The subject of this week's Lesson Sermon is 'Mind.'
Two citations give a flavour of what the lesson is about: "Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him." (Daniel 2:20 and 21:22). And from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, (p275) "Divine metaphysics, as revealed to spiritual understanding, shows clearly that all is Mind, and that Mind is God, omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience, - that is, all power, all presence, all Science. Hence all is in reality the manifestation of Mind."
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.
