CHRISTMAS – 6

     Christian Scientists, on this anniversary of the nativity of our Master, we question thee. Has the light of divine Science gone before you a star in the heavens of Soul till it came and stood over where the young child was, to break the solemn night?  Was it a divine hope, springing exultant on triumphant wing, sovereign o’er sin, the victor over sickness yielding glad fruition, a sublime understanding whose upward tendency told you it was a child of heaven born not of the flesh, but of the Spirit clothed with white winged charity and on the door of heaven and face radiant with goodbye (God be with you)?  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.20)

 

 

Dailies

Father, teach me how to still

The clamoring of sense, and fill

My place as listener,

That I may hear Thy voice and grow

To understand Thy Word, and so

Become Thy messenger.

Then teach me how to banish pride

And stubborn will that I may be

Thy representative –

With no false sense of human zeal,

That every word may bless and heal,

When I Thy message give.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Grekel, Doris, The Forever Leader, p.222)

CHRISTMAS – 5   

     Christian Science, casting out error and healing the sick, teaches that all things are possible to God. Do you believe this and how can you doubt it if you believe the Bible? Like the star of night the gentle presence of Truth comes to us in the darkness, when earth hath half-starved our angel appetites and we are an hungered; and it comes to cheer, to guide and bless — to point to heaven and lead the way.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.20)

Dailies

…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)

CHRISTMAS – 4

     Mary’s conception was the counterpart of God’s creation, of a scientific metaphysical creation, without a single material element, whereby to create, as when Spirit first said, “Let there be light and there was light” and “let us make man.” This great metaphysical fact by which we learn that Mind evolves all outline, form and color, that the universe and man are created spiritually, of the increase of His government there shall be no end. When unto us this child is born, the age lays it again in a manger, binds it in swaddling clothes, nurses it in obscurity and decrees its death, and yet we behold now, as of old, the power of Truth in meekness as in might.  Mary Baker Eddy (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.19)

CHRISTMAS – 3   

     Almost nineteen centuries ago—Science, symbolized by a star, appeared to Zion’s watchmen in the night of that age, a period darkened by the reign of the debauched Herod, and it guided them to the birth of a more spiritual idea, even to the Virgin Mother’s spiritual thought, and true conception of man’s real being, which thought that wonderful Mother made palpable, presented to others, and to their belief it became flesh and dwelt among us in the form of a babe at first, — and according to their belief her spiritual conception of man brought forth a material man and was a miraculous conception (but it was not) and they called the babe Jesus. The prophet, however, gave this idea of Mary’s a more appropriate term — he called it, Wonderful, a Counsellor, a Prince of Peace.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.19)
