To be a be-er and a do-er!

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. 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; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    I like very much what Bicknell Young says in his article “Oneness” about following in the path of Christ Jesus, “What are we to do about the traditions and difficulties of the world today? Are we just so many others waiting for something to happen, or are we feeling and being the power of the one Mind, knowing its presence, our presence, dispelling erroneous beliefs, and not waiting for, but being that something needed to heal. Mrs. Eddy says (Ret. 86:4): ‘There is but one way of doing good, and that is to do it! There is but one way of being good, and that is to be good!’ Unless the individual is a be-er and do-er of the Science he knows, it is of little avail. To know ourselves divinely is a necessity. We are not human beings at all and never have been.” We all have opportunities everyday not to be a passive spectator but and to be a be-er and a do-er thus showing forth the Truth of God’s perfect universe!

    Thank you! I love this: “To know ourselves divinely is a necessity. We are not human beings at all and never have been.” To realize this takes an effort on our part. But when we do, it is what helps us most on this plane of existence.

    As strange as it may seem to some, I can’t really identify myself as a human, the word seems even foreign to me now. This church has helped me realize that we are truly spiritual beings… as Jesus taught and Mrs. Eddy explained… and knowing this we can “be” and “do” the good we are here to express.
