daily nearer God

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!

    “If on our daily course our mind
    Be set to hallow all we find,
    New treasures still, of countless price,
    God will provide for sacrifice.

    The trivial round, the common task,
    Will furnish all we ought to ask;
    Room to deny ourselves, a road
    To bring us daily nearer God.” (by John Keble 1822)

    I found this hymn in the book Spiritual Footsteps by Gilbert Carpenter chapter 119. Carpenter goes on to quote Mrs. Eddy, “I am learning more and more everyday, to take God with me into every little thing I do.” My practitioner reminded me that as I prepare for Thanksgiving that I must remember that all I do should bring me closer to God. I can use the instruction during our last Roundtable to ask myself, “Why am I doing this activity? Am I listening to God and having Him direct my activity?”
