A thought for you to take with you today – words not from me, but from the founder of this church:
The habitual struggle to be always good is unceasing prayer. Its motives are made manifest in the blessings they bring, — blessings which, even if not acknowledged in audible words, attest our worthiness to be partakers of Love.
Simply asking that we may love God will never make us love Him; but the longing to be better and holier, expressed in daily watchfulness and in striving to assimilate more of the divine character, will mould and fashion us anew, until we awake in His likeness.
–Mary Baker Eddy, in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Read in context here.

See you at the park tomorrow! We’ll be thinking & praying together about our identity. (The second paragraph of the quote above is part of the service tomorrow.)
To find us, enter “333 Lamartine St., Jamaica Plain, MA” into your GPS, and you’ll see us across the street from there in Johnson Park, sitting on blankets in the grass. Or call in to listen, at 605-475-4000 x. 636128, starting around 10:30am Eastern time.
