  1. We have learned a tremendous lesson about the Christian Science proof of God's complete care for his beloved children - us. We have seen the views from very high financial mountain tops and the dismal scenes in the deepest The way forward was murky.

    Then, a Christian Association address several years ago, noted that success was not due to the "sweat of our brows", even if it looked that way. Successful business activities were God directed. In a subsequent Address, there was a section showing that supply is within our very being, as it is the Father-Mother's provision for each one of us.

    Until that Address, our life had been dominated by dark shadows of losing nearly all of our savings, a substantial retirement account and both of our inheritances. We tried to turn from these threats of the carnal mind, sometimes with great effort and many tears. There was some success in regaining a sense of well-being, but then something would make us think of the financial abyss.

    Then, buoyed up with those wonderful ideas in our Association, we strove mightily to 'stay' with the Truth, denying whatever the situation tried to present. We began expecting positive results. We employed wisdom in our expenses, finding that there was always something ‘left over’ to share with others.

    All this prayerful work has come to fruition. Now, we see how we are completely cared for by our Divine Parent. In unexpected ways, an expert in financial planning showed us a ‘new view’. It is providing the income we need and beginning to rebuild what the locust seemed to have taken away, but could never really touch.

    The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy characterized such a journey as ours this way: “Never ask for tomorrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment. What a glorious inheritance is given to us..." Miscellaneous Writings, 307:2.

  2. Thank you dear friends who make this service available. Years ago I was told a lovely definition of friend as someone who is always available. Of course God ,all seven synonyms, is our greatest friend. However, each individual expression of friendship is great fully welcomed. So grateful for all that I've learned and continue to learn through applying this precious science.

  3. Last week, there were some testimonies and comments about membership, and I would like to comment on that theme. In the early 1980's when I first learned of and began my study of Christian Science, I so wanted to join TMC but I had to quit a silly habit, that of smoking tobacco. I did quit (but mind you this was human will, not a healing per se) ... and a few months after joining the Mother Church, I went back to smoking. I figured I was "out" so I continued my study at home, but rarely attended services. I also never told anyone I was a Christian Scientist.

    Fast forward several years, including most of my work life in various offices, and most recently, having worked in a casino, no less, for a number of years, in which I serve coffee and beverages to the gamblers therein. During all this time, my prayerful life was very active, and quite a few years ago, I was actually healed of the habit of tobacco, permanently. At a time when I needed it, I found refuge in the now discontinued Open Conversations on the Christian Science website, and there I convened with other people who understood "where I was coming from". I decided that, since I was not smoking any more, i would inquire of the clerk, as to what the protocol would be to rejoin the Mother Church. I wrote and sent off the e-mail and waited. Very quickly, I received a response asking me what my former name and address was, which I sent. The next e-mail made me cry. The tears really were streaming right down my face, I remember vividly the entire e-mail ... ... ... it said "welcome back!" My joy was immense! I was so "whelmed" (not over or under!) with humble gratitude that we as Christian Scientists, ought to feel, and this was my answer to prayer. I felt like that prodigal son, who first had to get up the nerve to go home, and when he did come back, he somehow knew His father would accept him. He knew he was always in His Father's house. I am so grateful to be welcomed back! What a wonderful family! Thank you ever so much!
