…This is the cyclone hour with our cause when any weather vane must veer with the wind in order to indicate the right course. What seems best today, tomorrow may make not best. Be strong and clear in your convictions that God, not malicious animal magnetism, is influencing your actions. In order to be this, you must surely pray daily that God, good, divine Love – your only Mind – be followed, be loved, be lived by you. Mary Baker Eddy (Grekel, Doris, The Forever Leader, p.86)
What light does Christian Science throw on the seeming relation of Soul and body? 119:25-6
MATERIAL CHURCH ACTIVITY – 9
Men and women have never multiplied. There was never a birth nor a death of man, since man is the idea inseparable from his divine Principle which exists and coexists with God. Our only Father and Mother is God — therefore, the offspring of the flesh, born of a woman, is no more real, scientific or eternal, than a tumor, which the Christian Scientist labors to destroy and so heal the sick. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)
Guide us gently, God,
Through the cloud
Or on the sod;
Be our everlasting stay,
Night or day. Mary Baker Eddy

MATERIAL CHURCH ACTIVITY – 8
You will desire that place in society and the world which removes you furthest from them. The fate of ambition is its snare, its only rationality is madness. We should yearn and aspire to rise above the world, its sorrows or its favor, with as great earnestness as to triumph over sickness, sin and death, for worldly ambition leads in the paths of these conditions which are forbidden and forsaken in Christian Science. Man is not more nor less. Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.11)
27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
1 God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us;
2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
