Wednesday sharing meeting: fresh thought

If you look back it this blogs’ posts, articles, and blog-friends, you might notice that we really like the Bible and this book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, which helps us understand and apply the Science underpinning the Bible. For an open thought, reading these books begins (or continues) a spiritual and practical journey of uplift, healing, love, and understanding.  For some, just reading Science and Health has resulted in profound healing.  So, we regularly read topically-selected passages from these books at our church services and Wednesday meetings.

But if these books are so great, why do we take time weekly to open up the floor to whoever wants to speak?  Well, the books are great and we do read from them regularly, but it’s so important to keep thought fresh, diverse, and vivid.  The books have all those qualities, but there’s really something special about sharing in person how I, you, we apply these spiritual concepts in our individual walks of life, from pacifying family squabbles, to overcoming cancer or depression, to praying about hurricanes or war, to bicycling, rollerblading, running, or sky-diving safely and beautifully.  It’s touching, useful, beautiful, and affirming.  Combined with a bit of readings, singing, fellowship, and occasional discussion, it can make for a great Wednesday night.

This Wednesday, as most Wednesdays, we are meeting at 7:35pm at the community room on 687 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain, MA, with a phone-in line at (605) 475-4000 x636128.  We’d be thrilled if you joined us!

Much love,
