Slow of Heart

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!

    7. Luke 24
    25 Then [Christ Jesus] said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
    26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
    27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

    How wonderful that Christ Jesus said that and then immediately showed them how quick Love is by explaining all they needed to know, right up to the point where their “eyes were opened.”

    I think back on times when I have been “slow of heart” and I feel such gratitude for Christian Science! The human sense of “love” I relied upon was, for the most part, slow as molasses. Until coming to Plainfield I had no idea that there was anything better.

    In learning about Christian Science, I was not surprised to find that there was much I still needed to understand about Mind and Truth and Life. I knew I didn’t know everything. I was, however, absolutely shocked to learn that Love is just as infinite, equally ever-present, and that I practically knew nothing of it! What a blessing Christian Science and this church is, because this opportunity to learn more each day about God and the reality of His creation is what all mankind needs! Thank you!

    Your heart has been quickened! It never was really slow, just waiting for the right impulse.
