Above the Roar

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “…the sea and the waves roaring…” (Luke 21).

    “And o’er earth’s troubled, angry sea
    I see Christ walk,
    And come to me, and tenderly,
    Divinely talk” (“Christ My Refuge”, by Mary Baker Eddy)

    The image of Christ walking serenely above stormy seas graphically illustrates the power and majesty of Christ-consciousness that enables me to rise above every stormy trial and test that I may face. And, at this point in history, seeing – truly – the reality of “a world more bright,” brighter than ever before, is required of all of us: to persist in the promises of heaven (reality) rather than focusing my attention upon the roaring, temporal storms of the lower senses (unreality) crying for validation in tireless attempts crowd out and invalidate Christ-consciousness.

    From “Overcoming by Obedience,” Martha Wilcox:
    “Enoch proved this. Enoch saw no evil, or sin; he saw the appearance so-called matter, and formless mist that flees or dissolves before the light of the sun. He so focused the penetrating rays of omnipotent truth upon his seeming material selfhood, that it dissolved and vanished from human view. By so doing, Enoch lived and moved and had his being in God, and experienced the consciousness of eternal life. Thus must all mankind do to live.
    “There are not two kinds of reality, one to be overcome and the other to endure forever; but it is through the understanding of truth that we overcome the misconception of the one and only selfhood, here and now.”
