Inspiration

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!

    In citation 7, S&H, Mrs. Eddy says this about Christ Jesus; “His purpose in healing was not alone to restore health, but to demonstrate his divine Principle. He was inspired by God, by Truth and Love, in all that he said and did.”

    “Healing” in Christian Science is the ‘bait’ to awaken the “dormant understanding.” It took one ‘healing’ to inspire my understanding that there may be a God. It only took a couple more to prove to me there IS God because I had never experienced anything close to that kind of Joy in my life. “to demonstrate his divine Principle” for me was to realize that to overcome the illusion of the material, human condition, is not just a ‘maybe’ but a reality through God. ‘Hope’ is such an important necessity to keep one forging onward when waiting for the dawn!

    It is wonderful that so much goes on at this Church to help us gain the needed understanding of Science in order to live it….
    What we learn disciplines our thinking which in turn changes our view so that we may realize the present “dawn” perhaps faster than we would otherwise!

    “What we learn disciplines our thinking which in turn changes our view so that we may realize the present “dawn” perhaps faster than we would otherwise!”

    Perfectly stated! In reference to yesterday’s Bible Study discussion of “learning through Science or suffering,” my lack of discipline is corrected by suffering which forces me to discipline myself through Christian Science.
