"slow of heart to believe"

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 love the story of the walk to Emmaus, because it mirrors just how “slow of heart to believe” I was, and more importantly, it proves God’s great patience and mercy.

    For forty years, I experienced goodness and love, and had even spent time reading the Bible; yet still I walked blindly into the stupidest, most avoidable situations. I had to be practically beaten over the head with Truth and Love before I recognized it. As we are taught here, it is the nature of the human mind to be stupid, and I know myself how true that is.

    When Christ Jesus went over step-by-step for them, “beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24: 27), it is so easy to see the love and patience that God, and therefore the Christ, has for all. You can practically hear Truth saying to them “Consciousness, where art thou?” (S&H, p. 308) I am very thankful for His endless patience.

    I am also grateful to this church for teaching about Christian Science, and for practitioner support that has further clarified the practical steps to stay focused on God, and on His reality. I couldn’t find this path on my own, but as a member of this church it was shown to me and I am learning to walk it now. What a continual blessing! Thank you!
