Joy

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!

    “for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song” (Isaiah 12:3)

    Several times in this lesson we are reminded to be joyful — “with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation;” “Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things:” “Cry out and shout,” and “I exhort you to be of good cheer.” And in our Roundtable discussions, we have been taught to sing hymns when feeling discouraged or fearful, and that joy and gratitude are essential ingredients for healing. Error always tries to get us to lose our joy, but there’s nothing that error hates more, than to be laughed at!

    This importance of joy has been proven to me many times, and I’m so grateful to have learned it here in this church.
