In the Lord’s Prayer, given from Jesus to his followers, there’s a line that reads:
Give us this day our daily bread.
(that’s from the book of Matthew in the BIble, ch 6, verse 11.)
Mary Baker Eddy (who saw the laws behind what Jesus did in his ministry, and founded the Christian Science church based on her findings) gives an interpretation of this verse, which is part of her spiritual interpretation of the Lord’s Prayer.
As she gives it, the verse above is interpreted as:
Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections.
(and that’s from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 17.)
…and with that, I leave the above information with you to think about. 🙂

In the meantime, we’re having a church service this evening! In addition to hearing the Lord’s Prayer, there’ll be readings, song, love, and people sharing what they’re learning through Christian Science. All are welcome – always. Healing, and growth, are expected & anticipated. And we’ll meet at 687 Centre St in JP, and will get started at 7:35pm (run time is about 1hr). Or call in to listen/participate: (605) 475-4000, code 636128.
Go in grace,
