Press On Press On

  • The readings last Wednesday , November 15, about pressing on and persevering are Outstanding. I cannot thank you enough for this powerful and helpful message that gives such encouragement with joy and hope ! This collection of exceptional writings is something I will refer to and keep in my spiritual tool box.
  • Chardelle from PA

This week's lesson.

  • I fell that this weeks lession was written just for me. Thank you lesson writer.
  • Candy from WI

Thank you

  • Thank you for the readings last Wednesday on our true inheritance followed by the instructive testimony at the end of the service called Nothing Inharmonious Can Enter Being. God our Father-Mother and our only being, makes us complete without any outside or material influence.
  • Chardelle from PA

Thank you for the Bible Study!

  • Thank you, Mike for hosting such a wonderful Bible Study today. I learned so much! I found Jeremy’s information so interesting learning of the CERN Institute ( I’m not sure of the spelling?) in Switzerland and the study of protons and anti-protons, concluding that there shouldn’t be a material universe.
    Also, I loved Mike’s explanation of the difference between the Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 view of Earth. In Genesis 1 he reveals Mrs. Eddy’s concept of Earth representing understanding. A sphere, representing eternity as Mary Beth mentioned, a compound idea.
    As opposed to the material view in Genesis 2 which implies ground, adam, matter. A totally different view of what Earth is.
    To me, then my view of Earth and all that comprises it is my highest spiritual understanding of Life and God’s ideas. How breathtaking and beautiful our world is when we see it as God really has made it. I’m in awe and so humbled.
    I’m so grateful for the Plainfield Christian Science Church, Independent! The light and love which pours forth from every member at the Bible Study Meetings brings great understanding of spiritual truths. I’m so grateful to you all.

Grateful for today!

  • I am so grateful for the awesome Roundtable discussion and the following powerful Sunday service on “Everlasting Punishment!” To understand that everlasting punishment seems to be, comes from being at one with the wrong mind or mortal mind and this punishment will continue until we get out of this wrong thinking and become one with God. Hence, this unreal, false mortal mind continues to punish itself until it is completely destroyed and dissolves into nothingness.
    I am learning that God creates and governs every right idea that constitutes our consciousness. Real ideas that abide in thought are all we will ever need and heaven is when our entire consciousness is right ideas. If I seem to have the wrong sense of an idea, I can immediately release it and know that God holds reign over this idea and blesses man with the right idea only. I trust God and know his eternal ideas contain no evil, for “God is Love.” ( Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pg.2:23, Mary Baker Eddy) What an awesome God is our God!
    Thank you Plainfield Christian Science Church, Independent for the bountiful blessings you bestow on all that come to your table!!
  • Colleen from MA
  • Thanks, Colleen. For years I’ve been doing the regular Bible lessons from the Mother Church, but never really understood why Everlasting Punishment was one of them. I’d just skip over those words, like NO WAY. I knew better, but after the Roundtable discussion, I had a greater understanding of how to handle the accuser each time. Not to let it slide, but handle it now. What a surprise to find the answer Mary Beth shared in the discussion. It was at the back of the Plainfield Bible lesson in plain view!
    “Alertness to Duty
    It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind. By his works he shall be judged,–and justified or condemned. (Church Manual, Article VIII, Sect. 6)”
    (…not be made to forget nor neglect his duty…) came through loud and clear! Thank you all for a great discussion.

Love is the Fulfilling of the Law

  • I wish to offer my gratitude for the Readings called Love is the Fulfilling of the Law read by Mr. Gary Singleterry last evening on November first. This healing message about God’s ever lasting love for His creation comes at a crucial time in our lives. The Truth spoken, read and shared here will up lift the world and keep us always vigilant to see God’s work here and now.
  • Chardelle from PA
  • Beautiful service! I enjoyed the organ music prelude and could feel the peace coming through the pipes. With my hymn book, I joyfully sang along. What a privilege to join in the meeting through your wonderful website and listen to the inspirational readings that lifted my heart. It was just what I needed to hear. When the Lord’s Prayer was recited in unison, what a strong sense of dominion came through as each member affirmed the truth with conviction and clarity. I’ve never heard the Lord’s Prayer expressed so strong by a group before, and felt the power of the Words ringing out in the world.
    The testimonies were all powerful, too. Music is a joyful way to heal.
    Thank you all for everything.
    Joyful blessings,
  • Rae from Florida
