You're invited to attend the Wednesday meeting at 7p ET in person or on Zoom, July 17, 2024.

The topic is: "Self-government"

Our inseparable relationship to God governs our thought and action. Each of us is self-governed because we can act only as the eternal reflection of our all-acting, all-good God, our creator. Because of this, the real man, which is a generic term that includes all humanity, cannot do evil or be led astray. We hope you'll join us in person or online or by telephone to hear more, including Biblical examples of good government.

Whatever the topic, the truth you need to hear, the inspiration you are seeking, will be heard because all communication is from all-knowing, all-loving God.

Quote: "Immortal man demonstrates the government of God, good, in which is no power to sin."

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 405:19)



Hymn 48

Dear Father-Mother, Thou dost grant
All good and perfect gifts to me;
’Tis mine to raise this beacon here,
Obedience unto Thee.

He knows not death who Life obeys,
Nor errs at all when Truth he heeds;
While merged in Love, what hold has hate
Upon his thoughts or deeds?

Eternal Life and Truth and Love,
They who obey Thine every call,
Thy freemen are, and freely have
Dominion over all.


Hymn 20

Be true and list the voice within,
Be true unto thy high ideal,
Thy perfect self, that knows no sin,
That self that is the only real.

God is the only perfect One:
My perfect self is one with Him;
So man is seen as God’s own son,
When Truth dispels the shadows dim.

True to our God whose name is Love,
We shall fulfill our Father’s plan;
For true means true to God above,
To self, and to our fellow-man.

Hymn 84

God’s eternal Word is spoken,
Piercing mists, around, above;
Of eternal might the token,
Emblem of eternal Love;
Out of darkness, world-enthralling,
Into Light, O hear it calling.

Word of God, O Word eternal,
May we hear thy living voice,
Learn the power of Love supernal,
Learn obedience,—and rejoice;
God’s commands forever heeding,
Follow where His love is leading.
