NOTE FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE BOARD

It is the time of year for giving.    And the State Institutional Committee has a need.

 

We have many more requests for Monitor subscriptions than can be filled within our budget, so we need your help!  Sharing.

 

The Christian Science Monitor is a simple way to introduce Christian Science to inmates; a proven way to change lives; a great way to support the cause of Christian Science in the state of Texas.

 

The State Committee has obtained the Christmas gift rate (20% off) for sincere seekers of truth who have requested an annual subscription.    For $89.00 you can give a subscription of a The Christian Science Monitor.   There are two ways you can give:

1. By credit card.  Use the donate button to contribute $89 through PayPal

2. By check payable to the C. S.  State Institutional Committee in the amount of  $89. Please designate  CSM and mail to:

Thank you for considering this very special gift.

Learn to Pray and Heal (a spiritual adventure) Jan 20 in Irving

 

Are prayer and healing for you?

I mean, if you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you’re not even sure what you think about God, can you still pray and be healed?

Yes. Because prayer and healing are natural to us, and I say this as one who didn’t even grow up in a religious household. But what I’ve discovered as I’ve studied Christian Science is that a willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect–for anyone.

Like in the case of an inmate I worked with. As I shared the basics of Christian Science with him he said it all sounded great but he was just a bad person. He seemed pretty convinced that healing wasn’t for him. But as we talked about the fact that he wasn’t defined by his past, but by God, his source, who is completely good, I could tell his thought about himself was changing.

And then he wanted more. So he took a copy of the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, back to his cell and started to dive into these books. Six or seven weeks later, I ran into him again and he told me that he’d been healed of a serious illness–just from studying the Bible and Science and Health. His study helped him grasp God and his life in a new way and his disease was cured.

In my lecture, I’ll share more about the fundamentals of effective prayer, as I’ve learned from studying Christian Science, as well as how healing is truly possible for everyone.

Treasures of Hope Collection – Dallas Leadership Foundation Drive

Thank You for your contribution!

Sunday School again ran the donation boxes this year.  Morgen, Ruth and Hannah decorated two boxes and created a flier that was passed out after Church.

The donations went to Dallas Leadership Foundation Treasures of Hope Collection  .  What is this group?  Here is an excerpt from their website:

“Local churches in partnership with Dallas Leadership Foundation are mobilizing their congregations to go outside of the church walls and serve their communities alongside neighbors from different denominational, racial, class, and political backgrounds.”

Your donations went to the Christmas Store to provide for Dallas families in need.

The 2017 Board of Directors Meeting In Dallas

The Board of Directors from the Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston came to Dallas

This trip is more than a ‘rally the troops tour’; it is a coming together to feel that energy of Spirit.  Let us walk in this energy and feel animated.  This idea has inspired a new theme for our next steps: If we live in the Spirit, let us walk in the Spirit.  We do this together; it is not an individual journey.  If we find ourselves walking into church “assessing” the scene, embrace it in Love instead.

Questions/ Healing comments were taken from the audience.

How do we keep the material systems of thought out and still welcome the individual?

How do we help Readers?

How do we bring unity in church to  heal a Sunday School in Crisis?

How do we provide better teaching in Sunday school?

The Answer to all? – LOVE! The Love that sets hearts on fire. Be part of the Big Adventure that is church by tending your fire .

This is The Monitor’s hour!

The staff is on fire with energy and love to  bless all mankind as no other publication does.  A video describing the progress of The Christian Science Monitor’s mission and purpose to inspire the World was shown. There is a newness of  Universal Spirit.  Yes, This is the Monitor’s hour!

Practitioners and teachers gathered to share ideas throughout the region on Friday.
