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?

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.

Longing heart, don’t give up hope

A Landmark To CelebrateThe Christian Science Sentinel posted an article by Ethel A. Baker titled, A landmark to celebrate. The article chooses two selections from Mary Baker’s writings to help celebrate 100 years of the ratification to the 19th amendment:

August 18 marked one hundred years since the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women’s suffrage. Perhaps less well known, fifteen nations had already enacted similar legislation, beginning in 1893 with New Zealand, followed by Finland, Australia, Norway, Denmark, Russia, Lithuania, Canada, Austria, Latvia, Georgia, Germany, Poland, Hungary, and Estonia. And since then, with but a few exceptions remaining in the world, more than 170 countries have legally acknowledged a woman’s right to vote and to hold elective office…

Black And White? Or Brothers?The Christian Science Sentinel recently re-posted an article written in 2018 titled, Black and white? Or brothers? It regards the topic of race between two college roommates:

It was my first week in college in the United States, and I didn’t understand what was going on with my roommate. At first I’d been friendly, but he wasn’t very responsive. So I backed off—thinking he needed his space. However, I soon noticed that, while he didn’t seem to want to talk to me, outside of our room he was friendly with others.

I had never been in a situation like this before—of being around someone, having to live with someone, who was pretending I didn’t exist. The atmosphere in our room was tense, and in our limited interactions he was always unfriendly and impolite…
