I shall be satisfied.

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. 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; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3

    This sentence brought to mind the story of Lass shared in last week’s forum and discussed during our Roundtable. It was a great help to have this illustration for how we should be at one with God. As the dog Lass placed her trust in Phillip Keller her affection for him grew. It gave Lass great joy “to set” her undivided attention on him. She would keep him in view. It was said that like Lass we should be guided by His Presence; our trust in God should grow and our attention be focused on getting to know His voice; finally we should be content “to stay” where God has placed us, told us to stay. Distraction from the “things on the earth” will expended our energy until there is nothing left. God is with us even in the most difficult times.

    “Oh, may the light that is never dim so encompass you, that no night is there. May His angels hold thee in their power, and Songs of Science be heard in the intuitions of thought, till your life is in tune with the rhythm of God.” from Divinity Course and General Collectanea, the ‘Blue Book,’ by Mary Baker Eddy, page 224

    It is a beautiful prayer by Mrs. Eddy. It was chosen and read by Florence for our prayer at the beginning of last Sunday’s Roundtable. If you want to hear it read click on this link When Men Are Cast Down, There is Lifting Up.
