Wonderful Roundtable on Weather

  • Our insightful Roundtable yesterday reminded me of a powerful demonstration regarding storms from a few years ago. My husband and his crew were protected during an ocean crossing in his sailboat. They were sailing from Bermuda back to to US and with the help of a Plainfield Practitioner were in total safety, but storms were all around them. During a night watch my husband looked up at the night sky and saw the stars whereas the radar showed storms everywhere and the radio was filled with emergency calls. It was as if they were in a protected bubble! He isn’t a Scientist, but was very impressed by this demonstration and listened with me yesterday during the Roundtable and weather discussion. Christian Science is the answer we need for storms and every possible situation.

animal and magnetism

  • Regarding the meaning of the term animal magnetism, yesterday I found, “Essentially, the, the word ‘magnetism’ denotes invisible influence, and is so used in Christian Science. ’Animal,’ of course, refers to material organism in contradistinction to spiritual being.” (from Christian Science Class Instruction by Arthur Corey)
    This is very basic, but as is often the case, I needed it spelled out.

Wed. reading

  • Much gratitude to Elizabeth for the beautiful readings on the Baptism of Spirit.
  • Fairlie from MD

independent expression

  • In “Christian Science Class Instruction” Arthur Corey says, organization by its very nature is antagonistic to all independent expression.” It seems like a good thing to keep in mind that we may be alert to resist this tendency.
  • Barbara from PA


  • I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. (I Tim 2:1-2)
    These verses seem like such a wonderful, straight forward and simple, framework for general watches, something I’ve needed.

The 1910 Coup

  • I just wanted to thank you for bringing this informative article to the forefront of everyone’s thought in the Roundtable Discussion for last week. I had heard about some of the information revealed a number of years ago but this article and discussion went into so much detail and also bringing out all the ramifications we are having in the world today as a result of the deceptive acts of 1910 against God and Mrs. Eddy and her babe (Christian Science).
    This has refortified my loyalty and gratitude to this church for the strong stand it is taking to bring to the world the pure Science of Christianity that our beloved leader, Mary Baker Eddy left for us.
    I know there are Christian Scientists in the world today that are honest in their motives, their thought and understanding, however they are completely unaware of facts that are important regarding Mrs. Eddy, her discovery and her church; every aspect of her beloved Science has been so diluted, it would not be recognized today; however I know if their desire is sincere they will be led to this church which will help them all to find the straight and narrow path back to the pure Christian Science Mrs. Eddy discovered.
    My gratitude overflows for the diligent work done by each member in helping the Christian Science Church, Independent reach out to the world and re-establish the demonstrative Principle and idea – PERFECT GOD AND PERFECT MAN
  • Pam from VA

  • Thank you for the new posting on your Carousel, “Enduring Temptation.”
    Mrs. Eddy writes, “The ark indicates temptation overcome and followed by exaltation.” Science & Health 581:13 I’ve found that experience to be a joy beyond words.
    “Blessed is the man that endureth [overcometh] temptation: for when he is tried, [proved faithful], he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.” (James i. 12.) S&H 267:28, last sentence in the Creation chapter
    Could it be that we receive “the crown of life” each time when in our footsteps of truth we experience those beautiful times of “temptation overcome and followed by exaltation?”
    I am so grateful, Plainfield friends, for all your sharing, and for letting me share — hearts united, Love reflected in interchange of love.
