Healing Through Coming To ChristSue A. Spotts wrote an article from August 1992 that was recently shared on the Christian Science Journal website titled, Healing through coming to Christ. The article focuses on our connection with Christ:

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to have met Christ Jesus or to have been able to go to him for healing?

How would we approach this holiest of all men, the Son of God? Tentatively perhaps, not knowing quite what to expect—unsure of what might be required of us by the gospel he was proclaiming. Or we might see ourselves as coming to the Master with a bright sense of hope that not only would our bodies be restored but our thinking and our lives would also be touched by his healing prayer. Still others of us might imagine what unutterable humility we would feel in the presence of his spirituality, what a distance we would sense between our own meager expression of goodness and the sheer radiance of his light and love…

Tackling Global Issues, With PrayerEmily Faulkner shared an article on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Tackling global issues –  with prayer. The article discusses the power of prayer:

Emily Faulkner, a global studies major, lives at a unique intersection of thought. On the one hand, her major has exposed her to an in-depth analysis of some of the most pressing issues facing our planet. On the other, her study and practice of Christian Science have taught her that the most effective problem-solving doesn’t begin with a deep dive into the problem but with a solid understanding of God and God’s goodness—which in turn can bring healing. The Sentinel’s Jenny Sawyer sat down with Emily to talk about how it’s possible to stay informed about global issues and still pray about them effectively…

When opinions clash, it can be hard to see past what we perceive as another’s faults. When a woman found herself in that very situation with a colleague, the idea that God loves all His children totally changed the way she saw this person, opening the way for friendship…

Consistency In Healing PracticeDeWitt John wrote an article originally published in June 1982 that was recently shared again on the Christian Science Journal website titled, Consistency in healing practice. The article focuses on the consistencies seen through Christian Science and is worth a read:

One of the outstanding characteristics of Christian Science is its consistency—in metaphysical teachings, method of practice, and ethical standard. This consistency rests on unqualified acceptance of the omnipotence and goodness of God, divine Principle, as the only creator and source of man’s being.

To illustrate: If we start with the foundational truth that God, the creator of all that exists, is infinite Mind, this leads in Science to the logical conclusion that all that really is created is Mind’s manifestation, and hence divinely mental. And from the basic fact that the all-creating God is Spirit, not matter, flows the conclusion that all is in reality spiritual, not material…

Kathleen Mitchener shared an article this week on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Dispelling destructive forces. The article focuses on  prayer during extreme weather:

Each year, hurricane season is seen as running from June through November, with September generally anticipated as the most destructive month. Yet, prayer based on an understanding of the all-power of God can help us find a sense of calm in any situation—and experience it.

Growing up and living in an area of high tornado activity in the Midwestern United States, as well as serving in hurricane territory in the Peace Corps, I have had opportunities over the past several years to see firsthand the power of God to bring calm and safety despite the threat of storms…

Maryann McKay published an article on the Christian Science Monitor website today about a healing during a Wednesday night church service. She writes:

I was traveling for work and was scheduled to be on the road for nine weeks straight with almost no time off. The strenuous schedule left little time for rest. A month in, I was exhausted and coughing a great deal. Swallowing and speaking were very painful. I prayed earnestly about this as I had learned to do in Christian Science, but while there was improvement, the symptoms continued. I struggled to keep up with the work and travel. I felt alone, separated from God, and in need of spiritual inspiration, reassurance, and, most of all, healing…

Rowanne Karapogosian shared an article this week on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Singer healed of lost voice. The article focuses on  God’s Love:

I have been a student of Christian Science my whole life, and I have had countless healings through my understanding of Christian Science and through the prayers of Christian Science practitioners.

I received one early proof of God’s love for His children when I was in tenth grade. I was a member of my high school’s madrigal singers choir, and we received an invitation for two of our singers to audition for a large, semiprofessional performance group. Three of us raised our hands: a senior, a junior, and a sophomore—me. Our teacher said that the two oldest students could audition and that only if the director had time to take a third, could I audition.

If you missed it, Mark Swinney published an article on the Christian Science Monitor website yesterday addressing the value of yielding to God, divine Love, rather than frustration and complaint. The article says:

A simple change of thought often makes all the difference. It can be a change of attitude, a change in the way we see the world, a change in the way we see ourselves, a change in how we behold others.

When we change our thoughts for the better, good things can happen. But there’s another way our thinking can change, and it’s even more powerful. When we invite God to change our thoughts, wonderful things – even healing – can occur. As a high school sophomore at my first job, I experienced one such powerful change of perspective.

I was working in a position that didn’t require much training and the pay was quite low. I was glad to be earning it, but I wasn’t always feeling so glad as I worked along through my shift. It was hot, sweaty work, and after a few months, I liked it even less.

But I’d been attending a Christian Science Sunday School and there I’d learned that if I was feeling upset about something, I could turn to God for inspiration. So that’s what I did, and as I was praying one day, I became inspired to do something very specific – and that was to more consistently let God’s love fill my thoughts and guide my actions.

What that meant to me was if I found my thoughts muddied with things like complaint, resentment, self-righteousness, and fear, I could turn to God for a clean, clear line of thinking. Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer of Christian Science, metaphorically explains in her insightful book “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures”: “We cannot fill vessels already full. They must first be emptied” (p. 201). Later on the same page, Science and Health goes on to give specific instruction on how to do this: “pour in truth through flood-tides of Love.”

When I was at work, that’s exactly what I did. Rather than focusing on the unpleasantness of the job, I let appreciation for God, who is divine Love itself, fill my thoughts. As I did, I consistently felt the presence of God with me and was truly grateful for God’s love actively overflowing in me.

It wasn’t always easy to keep my thinking steadily clear in this way, but it ended up being quite a joy-filled activity. And after a time of conscientiously letting God’s love pour into the “vessel” of my consciousness and flush out those thoughts that weren’t loving, I realized I had started to really like my job. Each moment was an opportunity to fill my thoughts to overflowing with all that God is – acknowledging His goodness, tenderness, strength, intelligence.

When God is behind the inspiration that we bring into action, we are often happily surprised. Jesus explained: “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6). That describes how I felt. Instead of frustrated, I felt full of qualities such as joy and patience – qualities that are actually natural to all of us as God’s children.
