“What is church that thou are mindful of it?” That’s a slant onPsalm 8:4 that I was thinking about.
Does God know anything about church? No.
God, unchanging divine Love, only knows that Her spiritual idea, man and woman, are abundantly supplied with only good. It is our job to demonstrate that good in our experience, and for others. So why church?
Church is where your mind gets quiet. You’re encouraged to think for yourself, pray for your own answers. We stop the opinions of the world from flowing in by listening to the Bible and Christian Science textbook being read aloud, the inspired word of divine Love. And you have community around you for support in your self-discovery of how to live the teachings of Jesus better. For anyone seeking to grow spiritually and demonstrate divine Love’s good, this is an important time to settle down and be honest with oneself.
This kind of quiet thinking, driven by the Christ–the power and presence of God at work in our lives–not only makes us better people, but it reshapes the world around us to reflect more of the government of Heaven.
Can’t wait to see you at church (time and location below). Lots of love from JP Church.
