This mortal dream…

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 for another great Bible lesson, especially in light of recent events.

    “This mortal dream of sickness, sin, and death should cease through Christian Science…” (S&H 418:13)

    In the Carpenters’ book 500 Watching Points, Point 221, para. 2 states: “Christian Science should be thought of as a pair of wings, rather than a medicine chest. Then the practitioner would be considered, not like a doctor with his bag, which contains the medicine of Mind rather than of matter, but as one who goes to awaken a sleeper out of a nightmare, to the realization that he has no disease from which he needs to be healed. Then his thought is freed to soar up to God and gain a true sense of man.”

    The analogies the Carpenters paint in the Watches are wonderful healing tools as most are so visual and leave a picture in my mind. Thank you again for all the wonderful resources to awaken.

    “Christian Science should be thought of as a pair of wing, rather than a medicine chest.” I love the passage from 500 Watching Points! Thank you so much for sharing it Rae!!
