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!

    Thank you so much for bringing this article to my attention! I had not noticed it, and it has answered many of my questions on this subject.

    Also the article “Addressing Vaccinations” by Florence Roberts, in the March 2021 “Love is the Liberator” magazine.

    The lesson for 6/27/21 has also been so helpful, and I am thankful Mary Baker Eddy’s guidance all throughout her works, including:

    Science and Health page 129: 21-22

    ‘We must abandon pharmaceutics, and take up ontology,- “the science of real being.” ‘

    Science and Health page 142: 28-30

    ‘God being All-in-all, He made medicine; but that medicine was Mind.’

    Also Science and Health page 167:30

    ‘Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific power be realized.’

    I have found it helpful to turn off radio TV and internet, man made propaganda, to see that in this moment now is God’s Allness. Looking at nature flowers, trees, birds, the sky, moon and stars and wonder at the wonder of it, and how we wouldn’t look to the source of it all for our help.

    Thank you for all the Truth given here and for this worldwide church.

    Thank you for bringing attention to this word. I never paid any attention to it before but it’s a good one.

    Thank you I love this quote from Henry Grove!

    Thank you for this post, and for the article reference. It is very helpful.

    This also reminded me of Bicknell Young’s article “Death Overcome.” He says “ …I heard a sinister, diabolical, insidious “voice,” which began to talk to me in a more or less bored, yet masterful way….

    Only the fact that I was developed mentally, spiritually, and could “argue” with the “voice,” is what saved me from being forced into oblivion.”

    I was not aware of this “voice” until I started listening to Plainfield Church broadcasts. I thought this voice was me. I feel reading Science and Health fills consciousness with Truth and drowns out this voice.

    Thank you so much for posting this. Collectanea is new to me, and I hadn’t read this. The part on page 22 is especially helpful as when you are in the darkness you can’t always see it as the forerunner of great light, and this is so encouraging! I am very grateful for this church and for all that is shared on the forum.

    This is quite brilliant thanks.

    And “…matter is the unreal and temporal..”. MBE Scientifuc Statement of Being. Dictionary notes temporal definition relates to “of time.” As in Job and cursing the child of time.

    Thank you so much for this reply. It is very helpful. I was wondering the significance of 15 years but this answers it well.

    Dear Carol,

    Thanks so much for writing! I am so grateful for this church and for ‘rousing the dormant understanding.’ Thanks to God for leading me and others here, and to all the unselfish work done here.

    Susan.

    AMB thank you so much for those points from Charles Spurgeon! And Mrs. Eddy says it’s either ‘suffering or Science’. Some of us take longer than others it seems, or have to go through suffering before the desire is there for God. I also am so grateful for Plainfield Independent.

    Dear Florence,

    Thank you for this post. I have been listening to 4 round tables from 2015 on the subject of animal magnetism. This subject tends to be avoided, in my experience, by “Christian Scientists” because they don’t understand it or know what it is, and it has become superstitious and something frightening. I had shared an article on the subject by Anne Beals with a friend and she is hesistant and said “Sometimes when one reads about animal magnetism they become under mental attack.” This is exactly what error wants, to be left alone.

    This quote you shared I will share with her and it has helped me greatly as we cannot ignore the “claims” of animal magnetism and brush them to the side.

    I am very grateful for all that is shared in this church as it is really helping me to understand things that before were mysterious and scary. The round tables from 2015 were extremely eye opening.

    Thank you Florence. I really liked the Rev Kratzer’s audio lesson.
