No limitations

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!

    I loved hearing the discussion during this past Sunday’s Roundtable (12/19/21) about having no limitations about ourselves, and the fascinating story shared about a woman, at age 103 years young, who was apparently in search of someone in her home, and was seen on camera accomplishing something that was highly unusual for her at the time, due to the claim of limited mobility. With her desire to find the person for whom she was searching firmly in her mind, she was able to leave her walker at the top of the stairs, descend the steep stairs, look around the living room, walk back up the stairs, and return to her bedroom, with no assistance, and walking normally, without her walker. This brought to mind Mrs. Eddy’s account on page 261 of Science and Health, about the “noted actor” who was “so lame that he hobbled every day to the theatre, and sat aching in his chair till his cue was spoken. . .” At that point, he became “oblivious of physical infirmity” and walked about “as actively as the youngest member of the company.” Mrs. Eddy states that he was “under the strong impulse of desire to perform his part.” Her explanation of this account, which was also proven in the story about the woman mentioned above, states, “If one turns away from the body with such absorbed interest as to forget it, the body experiences no pain.” Thank you to all those who shared during yet another enlightening Roundtable!
