Dear Members & Friends –

The Reading Room article for this week’s Bible Lesson on “TRUTH” was written by Blanche H. Hogue. It’s title is “A Workman Approved” and first appeared in the August 1913 edition of the Christian Science Journal.  You will find it in the study room (or via the link below).

And, some extra perspective may be enjoyed by reading Hazel Zimmerman’s article “True Liberty” from the October 23, 1920 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel. It’s also available in the study room (or by tapping the link below).

Pure Mind – A Healing Atmosphere

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, wrote, “Pure Mind gives out an atmosphere that heals and saves” (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 260).

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, wrote, “Pure Mind gives out an atmosphere that heals and saves” (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 260).

The beauty of this statement is that Mind generously gives this atmosphere of healing and saving to its creation. What does each of us accept as truth? What is necessary for us to demonstrate this pure Mind in our experience? What does it take for us to do this more consistently, as Christ Jesus evidently did so well? How do we prove that “Mind is Love” (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 332) and that “Love is Mind” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 330), particularly when it seems that so many independent minds exist? Isn’t this the atmosphere most everyone would desire? Don’t we all desire healing in our lives and communities? Don’t most people who are sick or are sinning wish to be saved?

Mrs. Eddy believed God’s man – made spiritually as His image and likeness – reflects this pure Mind, as did Jesus Christ so perfectly. (See Genesis 1) She wrote that this man is “the full representation of Mind” (Science and Health, p. 591). And, she defined MIND as: “The only I, or Us; the only Spirit, Soul, divine Principle, substance, Life, Truth, Love; the one God; not that which is in man, but the divine Principle, or God, of whom man is the full and perfect expression; Deity, which outlines but is not outlined” (ibid., p. 591).

I believe we must be attuned to divine Love. Know this Love. Feel the impulse of this perfect Love. I believe we must deny the world belief that there are many minds and affirm that all God’s children can and do reflect one Mind. And, we need to do this as often as necessary to feel and see harmony in divine Love reign supreme. Doesn’t this begin within individual consciousness? The consciousness which reflects the only Spirit, Mind.

What do we cherish in thought? The healing atmosphere at Wide Horizon and in our communities must be nurtured by us all. Nurturing is a form of nursing one another through the expression of Love. Christ Jesus said that to love him, we must love God first and love our neighbor as he truly is – the image and likeness of Love, God.

So, we must love who we are as God’s man, His child or idea, His image and likeness. It is therefore up to us to love one another, without fail, in order to love God with all of our heart. It is so vital that we watch, work and pray together, having one God, expressing a higher spiritual sense of Mind, seeing God’s image and likeness in each individual expression of man. If we do this consistently, there will be more receptivity to the healing presence of Christ that is always at work within us. Scripture states, the “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27) Could this hope be the expectation of healing and saving, the glory of God’s perfect man expressed?

Mrs. Eddy also wrote, “The medicine of Science is divine Mind; and dishonesty, sensuality, falsehood, revenge, malice, are animal propensities and by no means the mental qualities which heal the sick” (Science and Health, p.104). She also stated God made medicine and that Mind was the first medicine. (See Science and Health, p. 142). Doesn’t mankind need this medicine? Isn’t it our duty and privilege to love one another by sharing this medicine? Aren’t each of us better off by taking and trusting in this medicine every day? Indeed, because this divine medicine saves and heals!

We can be knowing that there is only one divine Mind – one that all creation and mankind reflects. This “pure Mind gives out the atmosphere that saves and heals.” Each of us can do our best, knowing that “with God all things all possible.” (Mark 10:27) We can help to maintain this healing atmosphere by having one pure Mind. May you be blessed in all that you do in Christ’s name!

In my work in Christian Science nursing at Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association I have seen and supported countless healings. I have loved seeing the impact this has for the Cause of Christian Science.
 
You may be aware of the great need for more Christian Science nurses to be available for those who are calling on this ministry to support with healing.
 
Today I am asking if you or someone you know has ever considered exploring a career in Christian Science nursing
 
To help answer questions about the work and the training, I’m leading an “Ask Me Anything” webinar next week on Thursday July 29 at 7pm. Please join me – or pass this invitation along to a friend whom you think would thrive in this special profession. 
 
I welcome the opportunity to hear your questions and share my experiences.
 
With gratitude,

#1 Ask Me Anything Webinar
You or someone you know may be thinking about training for Christian Science nursing. You will want to check out our Webinar, Ask Me Anything, on Thursday, July 29th at 7 PM EDT. 

Heather Worley, Senior Instructor and Mentor in the Christian Science Nurses Training School, will be the presenter and answering all questions about training. This is a perfect webinar if you have considered the ministry of Christian Science nursing.

 

#2 New TrusteesRobert S. Collier
We are so pleased to welcome two new Trustees to the BA Board. Celia Waters is from Bellevue, Washington.  Robert S. Collier is from Grand Rapids, Michigan.

 

#3 Deferred Maintenance and Repairs Project
How exciting to see the contractors arrive this week to kick off this Project with the repair to the facades of both the Power House and Original Building. Thank you to the donors who have made possible the Deferred Maintenance and Repairs Project. This is a six-month project that will handle the most critical needs involving safety, compliance, and building stability on the BA campus. The completion of the Project will allow us a two to three year window to undertake sufficient planning and studies to address organization wide solutions with a Master Plan that will take the BA into the next decades.

 

#4 Marketing and Communications Refresh
When our long-serving Marketing and Communications Manager, Paul Woodsum, stepped down from his position here at the BA it provided the opportunity for a fresh perspective on communications for the BA. The result, two new Marketing and Communications positions! Marketing Manager and Marketing Coordinator. Perhaps you or someone you know can support the mission of healing at the BA with your marketing, graphic, and social media skills.

 

#5 The BA’s “secret garden
Yesterday I walked down to the Power House in the late afternoon to see the progress on the repairs that started this week. I felt like I was stepping into the BA’s own “secret garden” when I saw the flower beds that staff members have planted and nurtured over the years. Here are a couple of photos I took, including the vegetable gardens that staff who live at the BA maintain during the summer months.

Not Just Surviving But Thriving!An article was posted on the Christian Science Monitor website under A Christian Science Perspective by Elizabeth Schaefer titled, Not just surviving but thriving! The article reminds us during these times not just how to survive, but how to get back out there and thrive:

Baking on the searing pavement under the Texas summer sun in the middle of a busy roadway was a red-eared slider turtle. Driving by, my husband saw it just in time, then safely stopped, scooped it up, and brought it home. We put it in our small patio pond, but after several days, the turtle hadn’t eaten, the shell was flaking off, its skin was peeling, and the outlook seemed dire.

So I prayed.

Of all the pressing concerns in the world, the situation with a turtle didn’t seem very consequential. Yet I’ve found that praying about the little things in life often ends up helping me see solutions to the bigger things. In this case, I learned something about the nature of salvation…
