_ Love is in my heart and on my mind today – love for those who love me, and even more for those who don’t, because they need it most.
Mary Baker Eddy once counseled, “We should measure our love for God by our love for man; and our sense of Science will be measured by our obedience to God, — fulfilling the law of Love, doing good to all; imparting, so far as we reflect them, Truth, Life, and Love to all within the radius of our atmosphere of thought.” (Miscellaneous Writings, p.12)
Paul sent tender greetings to the church at Philippi, when he wrote, “Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.” (Philippians 1:3 New Living Translation)
_This is a mark of true friendship. Paul makes no conditions. His you refers to each and all. And he follows up with a simple prayer, “…that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well.” (Philippians 1:9 The Message)
Christian Scientists pray daily, "’Thy kingdom come;’ let the reign of divine Truth, Life, and Love be established in me, and rule out of me all sin; and may Thy Word enrich the affections of all mankind, and govern them!” (Church Manual, p.41)
I am grateful for you – for each and all of you. May God’s Word enrich your affections so that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much, but that the love of divine Love will govern and guide you at every step.

some form since 1979.
But my journey with
Christian Science started
in a Sunday school
where as a young child
I was taught the Scriptures and some simple basics
of Jesus' method of
scientific Christian healing.
A significant experience
at the age of twelve
opened my eyes to
the great potential
of this practice.
After impaling my foot
on a nail,
I prayed the way I had learned
in Sunday school.
the pain stopped
and healing began.
By the next morning the wound had disappeared completely.

of Christian Science,
