    “Spiritual living and blessedness are the only evidences, by which we can recognize true existence and feel the unspeakable peace which comes from an all-absorbing spiritual love.” Mary Baker Eddy

    Often I would read “spiritual living and blessedness” and wonder how I could attain the unspeakable peace. Now I am learning it is practicing this Science in daily life, following Jesus’ teachings, that Mary Baker Eddy explains in her written work and demonstrated in her life. For me this first required honesty, both with myself (paying attention to my motives) and with others (being true to myself). The strong desire to please others and solve their problems had to be replaced with obedience to God. I had a tendency to want things to be smooth and comfortable believing this was peace but it never worked for very long often making things much worse. I am learning true peace comes from striving to be like Christ, a living principle; a living faith. Christian Science correctly taught, found at this church, has been helping me understand God better which helps me be more obedient to His precepts. I am very grateful for this practical Science.

    Amen! This is a beautiful quote by Mrs. Eddy. The world is clamoring for peace, and to know that we have the opportunity to feel an “unspeakable peace” through “spiritual living and blessedness”, is precious!

    Thank you! Since coming to our Plainfield Church I am learning that human so called goodness was not real spiritual living. I now see that much of what I did was done to keep human peace, not face the issues head-on and pretend that everything was okay. When we live with the Christ Mind …. waiting on God everything feels different and true Love is expressed.
