He's Got it All in Control

  • Thank you so much for including this song in today’s Calendar. I found it so delightful, sweet and uplifting !! It is wonderful to hear it again. Also, in the Calendar today the testimony on being infused by the Holy Spirit. I found this so reassuring and a great relief. It reminds me that I am to ALWAYS look to God for EVERYTHING. It is not up to me to figure out what new and fresh insights and understanding of God I will get today or worry that I won’t get any since God is the only Mind and is my Mind.
    My association with this beautiful Church is helping me moment by moment to rely on God more and more. My heartfelt appreciation to the devotion that goes into this website, the Services, Bible Studies, Roundtables, Watches and especially to God. Blessings and Love to all!!

  • I feel so blessed for all I am learning since finding this Church. I have become so much more aware of where attention and thinking are and can get, most of the time, quickly back on the beam of God, learning how to live Christian Science, or better said let it live me, or live Itself. Sharing some simple truths with a family member has been fruitful and lifted them. Truthfully speaking, the truths lifted my concept of them. Thank you SO much ! Blessings and Love to all!

Heal the sin!

  • Thank you for the Roundtable yesterday on September 17th. During this discussion we were guided to page 183 in Watches Prayers and Arguments given by Mrs. Eddy. I was struck on how clearly it is written that to believe a lie, is sin.” You know those suggestions are all lies. Then it is a sin to believe them. Heal them….you are a child of God.” This is so wonderful to work with in my daily prayer. Mrs. Eddy is telling us to wake up and trust God alone. Again thank you.

  • Thank you for posting this Chardelle. This passage has really changed my view of the what “sin” is in a big way.

Thank You, Plainfield Church

  • Since tuning into your weekly powerful Bible lessons last spring, my faith has grown much stronger through prayer and study. I was able to apply the teachings during Hurricane Irma and maintain peace by staying in the now; thankful for each moment by going within and not being fearful of what my senses were forecasting. By focusing on the eternal now, my consciousness was above the storm and I knew God was in control of everything. God’s Love was right there in each “now” in total harmony. The next morning, when I looked out, there were tears of gratitude. The old trees knew how far to bend and only a few branches were down. The pink plastic flamingos in the garden were still standing, and the feral feline I feed daily showed up at the back door for breakfast.
    I took to heart what Mrs. Eddy wrote in Now and Then (Prose Works):
    “Behold, now is the accepted time.” A lost opportunity is the greatest of losses. Whittier mourned it as what “might have been.” We own no past, no future, we possess only now. If the reliable now is carelessly lost in speaking or in acting, it comes not back again. Whatever needs to be done which cannot be done now, God prepares the way for doing; while that which can be done now, but is not, increases our indebtedness to God. Faith in divine Love supplies the ever-present help and now, and gives the power to “act in the living present.”
    God bless you and the mighty work you do for the world!

Beautiful Bible Study

  • Thank you, Susanne!
    The Bible Study today was so filled with blessings! I appreciate the time and love you put into choosing and researching Romans 8! I also learned so much from the members sharing their own inspired thoughts regarding the wonderful questions. It is such a privilege for me to learn about the Bible from such dedicated Christian Scientists! It is your love and understanding of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy which provides the foundation of a Bible Study meeting that is rich with love, deep content and presented in a atmosphere of warmth, grace and spiritual illumination! I’m sure all who tuned in know what I am saying.
    The beautiful offerings of spiritual enlightenment from the church members here is priceless!
    Thank you.
  • Colleen from MA
  • Thank you, Colleen! This was such a blessing for me too and I learned so much from everyone’s comments. I can’t think of a better way to start the weekend than through our Bible Studies!

Thursday night Watch

  • I am so appreciative of the Watch that was written for Thursday night. I found it very beautiful, powerful and moving. I am learning more and more of the necessity and delight of working with joy, gratitude and appreciation since finding this Church “What a glorious thought this is, that we live in Love!
    Could we possibly ask for more?” Indeed! Blessings and Love to all !

Gratitude for this Church!!

  • I just wanted to say thank you to all the members of this wonderful church! I love to tune in to the Bible Study and Roundtable meetings and am learning so much!! I am practicing Christian Science instead of just trying!! Also, I wish to express my deepest gratitude to those who write the Lesson Sermons each week. This weeks lesson on “Matter” is filled with spiritual fruits!
    Thank you,
  • Colleen from MA


  • Many thanks to Laura, Bruce and Jared for the song HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW that reminds us that God is watching over us with His tender love just as He watches over the sparrow.

Watching Article

  • Thank you Parthens so much for the outstanding article on Watching!!

Today's Roundtable

  • I am very grateful for this morning’s Roundtable. The subject of debt in particular got my attention and I will use what I have learned this morning in addressing it. As was mentioned I have found remembering that the money I have, or anything for that matter, belongs to God and not to me. It is a great relief to see it this way, truthfully. And will ask God before I spend money if he wants his money spent this way. This will help me get closer to God, I believe, if I start to “acknowledge Him in ALL thy ways.” Thank you so much ! Blessings and Love to all.

Today's Daily Calender offerings

  • I am very grateful for the link in today’s Daily Calendar email to the YouTube audio reading of Rev. G. A. Krazter’s “Working Out Our Problem” from “Dominion Within”. I love Rev. Kratzer’s writings. This one was particularly helpful as I have been praying about how involved to get in helping my Mom through a “rough patch”. At some point in time I elected myself “savior of the family” maybe because of being the eldest, wanting to fix and help everyone. Hearing this talk is a wonderful help to me, a confirmation and answer to prayer. I had all these ideas of ways to share Christian Science and give her a bunch of daily “assignments” to help her feel better. I am seeing as I write this how I spent more time seeing something that needed fixing “out there” and how I should help fix it rather than seeing the fixing needed to take place “in here”, in my consciousness for seeing something wrong with my Mom – attaching a problem to her – and then thinking I had to do something about it . As the time approached to visit her, I dropped everything I had planned to give her except a little index card with statements of God being “my health, my strength, my life, my stability, my joy, my energy.” When I went over to see her she looked great and was in good spirits and there didn’t seem to be anything “wrong” at all. I am getting so much out of this talk in regards to taking care of my “own house” first. I am so grateful for the Plainfield Church and everyone involved here and all the wonderful resources available. They quickly help me to get back on track when I lose my way. Blessings and Love to all.
