- Thank you for all the wonderful articles that are posted on our home webpage carousel. I appreciate how long they are left up so one can go back and reread them but I also greatly appreciate how often they are changed. It is truly a commitment of love to prepare and share these excerpts for this purpose. The one on “Strength and Sweetness” was interesting to me. It reminded me of Mrs. Eddy’s admonition to go forth in life “with a charity broad enough to cover the whole world’s evil, and sweet enough to neutralize what is bitter in it.”
I looked up sweetness in the 1828 Webster’s dictionary and it said- Softness; mildness; amiableness; as sweetness of temper.
- I am very happy with our Plainfield Church and outreach, and share it as much as possible on Facebook. One thing I would like to comment on, and it is not very important. I have noticed that some hymns are sung way too slow, so that it almost sounds like whining. There are happy, uplifting hymns, that must be sung chippy and with joy.
- Another wonderful Bible Study today. Thank you all! I found the discussion on what it means for one’s eye to be single especially helpful.
- I have to say how grateful I am for the Plainfield calendar. Not only do I receive daily encouragement, I have been sharing the quotes with members of my family… and they thank me! I also tuck them into notes and letters. One friend told me that she had saved every single quote that I had sent to her.
- Very grateful for the questions which are put out for our Bible Studies each week. The resulting research really opens up the Lessons in the Bible, truly enriches each Lesson. Then the Forum helps expand different meanings, and the Forum Highlights gives a wonderful overview and reminder of all that we are learning in each Lesson and can put into practice each day. Thank you to everyone who contributes!
- “At one time, I asked her [Mary Baker Eddy] what she considered the most profound statement, that was included in the textbook, “Science and Health.” She at once asked me to answer my own question. I replied by quoting from page 518, ‘Blessed is that man who seeth his brother’s need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another’s good.’ She agreed that this was the most profound statement in her book.” See “Mary Baker Eddy Her Spiritual, Footsteps” by Gilbert C. Carpenter, CSB Sr. & Jr., iBooks page 186 of 560 or print page 174.
- Much gratitude to Plainfield for Sunday’s Roundtable (5/15). These sessions are wonderful learning times. As was said, “We sit at the feet of Jesus.” The conversation today brought out so much to fulfill our Christian lives: seeing all people as children of God, refusing to allow wrong beliefs into one’s consciousness, making a list of human beliefs and replacing them with the truth, working with the synonyms of God, and being grateful for all one has already, continual gratitude and joy.
