Dear friends,

The theme of this week’s lesson is “WINGS”. Look for phrases like — shadow of his wings, bear them on his wings, wings like a dove, healing in his wings, etc. A beautiful lesson!!

Ideas for studying the lesson on "God the only cause and creator" for Dec. 9, 2018

Ideas for studying the lesson on "Ancient and Modern. . ." for Dec. 2, 2018

Dear friends,

Related words of the root word HID AND HIDE are throughout the lesson. (24x) Hid means to be kept secret, concealed, that it might not be known, covered; to hide oneself carefully; “ hidden from the world and known to God”. SECRET also is a word that is throughout this lesson. It can mean covering, shelter, hiding place, the secret place of the most high, protection. And the word PRESERVE OR PRESERVED is also a theme.

Sometimes it is very helpful to me to write down the main ideas of each section. Here is my sheet of ideas, but please know that yours could be very different.

Ideas to study on "Soul and Body," for Nov. 25, 2018

Dear Friends,

Two themes that are running through this week’s lesson are the idea of “temple”, used about 17 times. In section six, Mrs Eddy says, “The word temple also means body.” (576:14) And the words ‘reflect’ and ‘reflection’ are used 14 times. Soul is not IN body, but is reflected by man.

Ideas for studying the lesson on "Unreality" for October 7, 2018

 

Hi everyone!

I wanted to inform you of an upcoming talk at the A/U Ranches by my sister, Kristy Christian, on November 2-November 4, 2018.

It’s entitled “God Giveth U the Victory” (I Cor. 15:57)
“. . .thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Cor. 15:57), Paul writes to the church in Corinth. He also comments that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal” (II Cor. 10:4). Are we not prompted to ponder the nature of a war that does not require material weapons, nor does it demand that we wrestle against flesh and blood (see Eph. 6:12)?

Join us November 2018, for a deeper study of this “divine method of warfare” (S&H568:6), as outlined in the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings. Our discussion will cover several narratives in both the Old and New Testaments which develop our theme and reveal how, with God, we can expect complete victory over any challenge that might confront us.

A few of the questions that we will explore:

·      What is our spiritual means of defense?

·      What is the significance of the “whole armour of God,” described in Ephesians?

 Click on this link to find out more information and to download a flyer.

We would love to have you join us for this inspiring event! It would be fun to meet some of you who live around the country at this talk.

With love,

Kathy

I am including this paper called “The Psychologist and the Magician in my blog this week because it so clearly illustrates the concept of “Illusion”. It is long - nineteen pages, so all may not want to read it. But it’s a paper that has gone around the movement through the years, even though it is not Christian Science. I pull it out and ponder it every so often, and gain a lot by doing so. Please forgive my highlighting and underlinings.
