  • I am very grateful for the loving and fulfilling Roundtable discussion on July 15th. It fortified me to remain steadfast!!
    I am in the midst of remodeling some areas of my home and this entire process has been filled with blessings and growth of my understanding of God’s government of my life and all activities of my life. On Saturday, new tile was laid in my foyer and bathroom. It did not look good at all. Mortal mind tried to very hard to crush me, get me to react, throw my hands up, question my choice of contractor, etc. Thankfully, I did not let it take hold. I knew that God did not leave me alone and that he would take this process to completion. I continued to hear the Roundtable comments of “Do not give up!”, “Keep working even though it doesn’t appear to getting better.” I was able to stay calm and know that God would supply the answers. I did not need to try to figure out the resolution. Family came over on Sunday, and stated the question, “How will they fix the floor?” I firmly and lovingly stated,” I don’t know.” and that was the end of that discussion because we all turned mentally to God. The rest of the day was filled with joy instead of negative thoughts about the situation. Error continued to try to take hold but I was not having it. I knew I would be able to demonstrate God’s power today. I realized this morning that I needed to love each situation of the day more. Love would provide the needed answers. The contractors arrived this morning and knew how to start the correction process.
    I am very grateful that I did not allow mortal mind to control any part of this experience. I am very grateful for the process of holding steadfast to the Truth and not giving up. I see this as growing stronger and being able to rely and use this demonstration in the future.
    So happy for my progress that will benefit all!!!!

"Rest for the soul"

  • Thank you for tonight’s testimony meeting on “Rest for the soul”! The comforting readings are so needed right now. (Thank you, Fairlie!) Love radiates out from our meetings and heals the world. We all feel it and we know that even those who we haven’t met yet feel this Love, too! Many new members will keep coming to us because Love is irresistible and this Church is overflowing with Life, Truth and Love! “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6) Blessed are those who come to The Plainfield Christian Science Church, Independent and are filled with the tremendous resources here so freely given. It is the gift of God. We are so grateful!

July 8, 2018 Roundtable

  • Thank you very much for today’s (7/8/18) Roundtable and Church service. As I listened to the reading of the Lesson on SACRAMENT, when the words were read, “Those who slew him [Jesus] to stay his influence perpetuated and extended it” (S&H 43:19-20), it made me think that with all the information coming forth which explains the downfall of the organization in Boston, it was their persecution of Plainfield and the resultant court battle, which freed the name “Christian Science” from being hijacked by mortal mind and sequestered from the world in a material temple!
    Thank you, thank you for what Plainfield did to stand on Principle and act only as God directed! And thank you to all the early workers who were not fooled, but went ahead and proved this Science. Thank you to all who have worked in this Independent church, and are working now, in this endeavor, and to all who find their way here to stand with God, on the rock, Christ Jesus, to follow in his Word, and follow our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy — as she said, “only so far as she follows Christ.” (Message for 1901, 34:25-26)

Bible Studies

  • Thank you very much for the archived Bible Studies that allow me to continue to study with others each week.
  • Debra from IL

  • Thank you for the inspiring newsletter! I enjoyed reading all of the articles. The one on The Spiritual Journey of George Washington was excellent.
    I remember touring Mount Vernon, in Alexandria, Virginia. George Washington’s signature is etched on the wall at the Visitor Center. Above the inscription: TO KEEP HIM FIRST
    Those words were encouraging, I took them to mean keep God first, not George Washington.
    In his book The Bulletproof George Washington, David Barton writes, “George Washington took part in the French and Indian War at the age of twenty-three. In one particular battle Washington’s life hung in the balance for two hours. ...
    Fifteen years later the Indian chief in charge of that battle met Washington. The chief recounted, “A power mightier than we shielded you. Seeing you were under the special guardianship of the Great Spirit, we immediately ceased fire at you. . . the man who is the particular favorite of Heaven, and who can never die in battle.”
