The Greatest Thing in the World – Henry Drummond.

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!

    Thank you so much for the reminder on the Sunday 1/31/21 Roundtable, to read this book. It has helped me so much this week in my day to day work and interactions.

    I was so heartened to read in the chapter called “The Analysis”:

    “The World is not a playground; it is a schoolroom.” And further:

    “Do not quarrel, therefore, with your lot in life. Do not complain of its never-ceasing cares, it’s petty environment, the vexations you have to stand, the small and sordid souls you have to live and work with. Above all, do not resent temptation; do not be perplexed because it seems to thicken round you more and more, and ceases neither for effort nor for agony nor prayer. That is your practice. That is the practice which God appoints you; and it is having its work in making you patient, and humble, and generous, and unselfish, and kind, and courteous. Do not grudge the hand that is moulding the still too shapeless image within you. It is growing more beautiful, though you see it not; and every touch of temptation may add to its perfection.”

    This book has so much to learn from and I am very grateful for it, and this church.
