Mary E. Eaton, C.s.b.The Longyear Museum posted an article on their website written by Marylee Hursh December 1, 1978 titled, Mary E. Eaton, C.S.B.. The article highlights Mary Eaton and her influence during the early years of Christian Science:

Of the many students and workers associated with Mary Baker Eddy in the early years of the Christian Science movement, some are less well known today than others. One such individual is Mary E. Eaton. As was true of many of her peers in the movement, Mary Eaton was dedicated, unselfish, and tireless in her efforts to advance the Cause of Christian Science and to help her Leader. She attended Mrs. Eddy’s last class of 1898, served briefly in her household, and taught and practiced Christian Science for many years…

Christian Science Journal – The power of today

The Christian Science Journal website published an article by Alexandre Fischer for next month’s issue titled, The power of today: We’ve all made mistakes.

The Power Of TodayThe Christian Science Journal website published an article by Alexandre Fischer for next month’s issue titled, The power of today:

We’ve all made mistakes. And even if we’ve learned from our mistakes and changed our ways, we can feel burdened by our past. It can feel as though there’s nothing to be done about what’s happened, so past circumstances continue to affect our current experience. We can’t physically go back in time to change a regretted behavior or circumstance like in a science fiction movie. And the thought that one cannot change his or her past is often accepted as common wisdom. But Paul says: “The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (I Corinthians 3:19). 

Does this mean that we can be free from mistakes of the past and rectify unfortunate experiences? Absolutely.

Christian Science Sentinel: Breakthroughs – always possible

Breakthroughs—always PossibleThe Christian Science Sentinel posted an article by Kim Crooks Korinek a few days ago titled, Breakthroughs – always possible. Kim shares her thoughts:

It seemed impossible. The most experienced white-water paddlers couldn’t navigate the biggest rapid in the river’s racecourse during the practice runs. Convinced it couldn’t be run, and feeling upset and justified, they planned to go to the racecourse architects to demand changes. And then, one young guy in the junior category, taking on the course with confidence and focus, sliced through the racecourse fast and clean—not touching a single gate—even in the course’s most demanding rapid. All of a sudden, what seemed implausible, even impossible, was possible. A dish of “humble pie” was shared by the elite paddlers, and a new set of expectations was raised. Sure enough, others were able to run the whole course with a new strength and grace they hadn’t been able to imagine before.

Breakthroughs of every kind are celebrated. Athletes are continually breaking records, new inventions and discoveries are made every year, and conferences are held around the world to share new ways to solve old problems. Pride, fear, doubt, and a false estimate of our limits are pushed aside in anticipation of the great good that is possible…

ViewHealing 101 is supporting a series of live webinars from the Portland Christian Science lecture series and the final lecture is coming up! Lyle Young, CSB will be presenting a lecture titled,  A Clearer View of You – December 3rd at 7:15PM PST.

Who are we, really?  You and I, and all humanity?  The health, harmony, and joy we experience in life depends on our answer to this question.  Mary Baker Eddy, who founded the Christian Science church, had a profound insight into the nature of God as infinite Love.  She perceived that God is the only substance, intelligence and Life of the universe, without the opposition typically ascribed to darkness or evil.  Moreover, Eddy realized that this was the basis of Jesus’ healing works…

Election TimeAn article was posted on the Christian Science Monitor website under A Christian Science Perspective titled, Volunteering in this election – to pray. The article reviews the perspective of a political campaign member and the inner peace he finds during this time:

Wanting to feel that he’s doing everything he can to support the upcoming U.S. presidential election, an experienced political campaign staffer and volunteer has committed himself to being a “prayer volunteer.” The result? Less feeling “churned up” by politics and an inner peace and love that have led to notably improved interactions with others.

Gathering Together In Church Without BoundariesThe Christian Science Sentinel posted an article by Mark Swinney titled, Gathering together in Church without boundaries:

While church buildings and members organized so as to work efficiently together in service to God and mankind certainly continue to be exceedingly relevant, are there other approaches to gathering together in Christ’s name? Lately, people have been gathering in online church events, readily feeling empowered and inspired by the Christ, Truth, that is shining so brightly “in the midst of them.” An online church service or testimony meeting, Sunday School class or lecture, hymn sing or live podcast, can embody all of the substance and spirit of any in-person gathering.

But church can be a much less formal activity, too. In her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, defines Church in this insightful way: “The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.

The Law Of LoveHealing 101 is supporting a series of live webinars from the Portland Christian Science lecture series from October through December. Anne Melville CSB will be speaking next on the topic of, The Law of Love – November 5th at 7:15PM PST.

The law of Love is the central theme of the Bible. It is that law which the ancient prophets caught wonderful glimpses of, and which saved the ancient peoples of the Bible from disease, famine, slavery and enemy forces when they turned to God. It is the law that was behind Christ Jesus’ healing ministry, which he taught his followers so they could heal, too. This same law of Love is demonstrated in Christian Science healing today.

Mary Baker Eddy Library – Mary Baker Eddy and the Puritans

Early this month the Mary Baker Eddy Library website posted a podcast highlighting Dr. David Hall, author of The Puritans: A Transatlantic History (2019):

How should we view the Puritans, and their religious and cultural legacy? This episode explores that question with Dr. David Hall, author of The Puritans: A Transatlantic History (2019). As he explains, there was much more to these people than the stern, judgmental caricature that has followed them through the years. In fact, Hall says, when we look at how the Puritans felt about God’s presence in their lives, “the word love leaps out at us.” For Mary Baker Eddy, her Puritan heritage  left a deep and abiding impression—one she both contested and valued. Learn how the Puritan concept of “spiritual sense” in the human heart connected to her vision.

Don’t Give Up HopeOn August 27th a loving article was posted on the Christian Science Monitor website under A Christian Science Perspective titled, Don’t give up hope. The article reviews the lyrics of a well loved hymn:

Longing heart, don’t give up hope
When threats of evil overwhelm.
Love now keeps Her promise true,

Bringing joy when all seems darkness –
God will keep you safe, secure.
You go forward, loved and peaceful:
Victory is always sure.
