"Divine Love is Present"
"So let us be awake to the demands of the hour whenever we hear of a meeting or a conference taking place. It may change the whole history of the world. Let us remember that divine Love is present at those meetings to save, to unite, and to show the way, and that animal magnetism cannot operate at any time, through any channel, or in any way to separate people or nations. Let us see that there's one Principle, one power, governing, and that that one Principle is divine Love."
How Divine Love Meets the Human Need, by Clifford and Daisy Stamp, p. 88.

"Eternal man recognized"

"A knowledge of error and of its operations must precede that understanding of Truth which destroys error, until the entire mortal, material error finally disappears, and the eternal verity, man created by and of Spirit, is understood and recognized as the true likeness of his Maker".

Introduction by Helen Wright
May 22

The following excerpt is from America: Cradle for the Second Coming by Helen Wright (2nd edition, 1999, pp. 163-164):

The following remarkable vision of Julia Ward Howe was published in the July 18, 1908 Christian Science Sentinel, Vol. X, No. 46. Its title, But Their Eyes Were Holden, no doubt refers to the general public's unawareness that the very condition Mrs. Howe saw as a possibility for the future was actually an accomplished fact through Christian Science – that the unnumbered thousands healed and regenerated in Christian Science constituted the 'vast host,' seen in her vision:

One night recently I experienced a sudden awakening. I had a vision of a new era which is to dawn for mankind and in which men and women are battling, equally, untidily, for the uplifting and emancipating of the race from evil. I saw men and women of every clime working like bees to unwrap the evils of society, and to discover the whole web of vice and misery and to apply the remedies and also to find the influences that should best counteract evil and its attending suffering.

There seemed to be a new, a wondrous, ever-permeating light, the glory of which I cannot attempt to put into human words--the light of the newborn hope and sympathy blazing. The source of this light was born of human endeavor, immortal purpose of countless thousands of men and women who were equally doing their part in the worldwide battle with evil, and whose energy was bended to tear the mask from error, crime, superstition, greed, and to discover and apply the remedy.

I saw men and women, standing side by side, shoulder to shoulder, a common lofty and indomitable purpose lighting every face with a glory not of this earth. All were advancing with one end in view, one foe to trample, one everlasting good to gain. I saw them advancing like a mighty army, laden with the fruits of their research, their study, their endeavor, in this battle with the powers of darkness, and ready to tear vice from the earth, to strip away all of selfishness, greed, and rapine. Then I seemed to see them stoop down to their fellows and to lift them higher, higher, and yet higher. Men and women, a vast host, whom none could number, working untidily, equally, with superhuman energy, all for the extirpation of the blackness of vice and for the weal of the race.

And then I saw the victory!

All of evil was gone from the earth. Misery was blotted out. Mankind was emancipated and ready to march forward in a new era of human understanding, all-encompassing sympathy, and ever-present help. The era of perfect love, of peace passing understanding. 

(Originally printed in The Boston Sunday American of June 28, 1908.)

In Julia Ward Howe's vision, the veil which obscures the ever-present millennium was lifted—as Mary Baker Eddy had already, in actual practice, been lifting it for forty-two years.

Divine Theology versus False Theology
Association Address 1967
by Clara Armitage Brown
May 1
Excerpt – "Webster's dictionary defines theology, as "knowledge of God and the supernatural; religious knowledge and belief, especially when methodically formulated." Unspiritual theology hinders the spiritual progress that gives impulse to creative thought. Thus, false theology slows up human progress along all lines, while spiritual theology alerts human thought to look for and develop new ideas. This spiritual awakening, alerting human thought, accounts for the many wonderful inventions that are now available for our use and which have immeasurably lessened toilsome burdens."

"I am an unresisting channel through which Divine Love shines with its full healing force –
I have conscious dominion over this mortal lie whatever it may be –
M.A.M. cannot argue lack or failure, fear, or discouragement to me, for God is present here
His law of Love and justice is expressed.

The Scientific Statement of Being
Association Address 1929
by Frances Thurber Seal
March 30

Excerpt – "The great basic statement of Christian Science, the Scientific Statement of Being, contains enough truth to redeem man and the universe. This statement understood is the greatest healer the world has ever known since the days of Christ Jesus. For many years I wondered why Mrs. Eddy began this statement with a negative, rather than placing the affirmation first, but I finally came to see that the only thing that necessitated Christian Science or mental healing is the one error, the belief of life, truth, substance and intelligence in matter."

Demonstrating the Law of Unlimited Good
Association Address 1925
by Frances Thurber Seal
March 30

Excerpt  – "I will talk to you today of Christian Science as the Universal Redeemer. Its first revelator declared that he had come that men might have life and might have it more abundantly, not only more abundantly in the sense of having added years. Abundant means affluent, full, bountiful, liberal, rich, plenteous, generous; not just enough to get along. ..."

Christian Science in Germany (1931)
by Frances Thurber Seal
March 30

In this book, Frances Thurber Seal describes her experiences when she was sent to Germany as a Christian Science worker to introduce and establish Christian Science there.

Excerpt from Chapter Two  – "It being mid-winter, there were only a few first-class passengers, most of them unaccustomed to the sea and filled with fear. It was my first trip across the ocean, and, but for the firm conviction that God had called me to do His work in Germany, and that His presence was with me and would sustain and protect me under all conditions, it would have been a terrifying experience; but at no time had I any thought of fear, and with the help of a steward I went to meals, and was the only passenger at the table after the storm became violent."

Topic from Association Address of 1934
From Reminiscences of Reginald G. Kerry (See above)
by William Duncan Kilpatrick, C.S.B.
February 28

Excerpt  – "We should all know daily the truth about government. We should work for government. Mrs. Eddy tells that she worked daily for the government, and it is evident that she intended that all of us should do likewise. Our work for government, as in all other things, should be in the absolute. We should know that there is but one government, and that that is the government by Mind of all its vast creation of ideas. We should recognize the divine Mind, or divine intelligence, the divine esse, the isness of all existence, as the only cause and creator, and that the manifestation or outcome of this divine Mind, this one supreme and good consciousness, are ideas. We should know every day that these ideas are created, controlled, governed, directed, outlined, placed and activated by this one all-knowing, all-seeing, all-wise intelligence. Intelligence, in and of itself, is creator; is director; is governor and administrator of all law and order. We should know that in the realm of the real (and that is the only realm there is, and that realm is here and now), we live, move, and have our being; that in this realm, everything is idea, and idea is an expression of an all-seeing and all-knowing intelligence; that because of this, all time and place and space are done away with as objects of matter and material phenomena, and in their place there is naught but idea. We must know that because of this truth about government, the only truth there is, is the truth about God and man in God’s image and likeness."

In the Beginning
by John Morgan
February 19

Introduction  – "Our age offers us the unique gift of an actual Science of Being. Yet the prospect of studying such an immense subject might well daunt the seeker if there were not already, in the Bible, a perfect crystallization of the basic concepts. In the idiom of the Bible, these are presented as the seven days of creation. These fundamentals were re-defined in twentieth century language by Mary Baker Eddy, who built the Christian Science textbook, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures', upon this definition of God: 'God is. incorporeal, divine, supreme, infinite Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love'.

"The study sections comprising this pamphlet appeared originally in the 'Children’s Supplement', issued with 'Metaphysical Notes', a periodical published by The Foundational Book Company of London. They are now re-issued, with little alteration to the language, as a simple introduction to the study, suitable for the beginner of all ages."

Question: is America a place or is it a State of Consciousness? When seen in its spiritual connotation it must obviously be the latter.

Thus no one has to come to America but needs only to realize the reality of government under God, no matter where they are located. America is a symbol for freedom and freedom is with God, this is everywhere present, active and complete.

America was founded on the law of God, Principle (seen at the highest level of understanding of that day), that can evolve, but never change, for that is what America is, a symbol for the law and government of God. A government of laws and not people.

A symbol can be translated to its basic idea (God, Principle) a thing, a place cannot.

We today are presented via the media all the age - old pictures of "good and evil". Divine Science operating at the level of Christian Science corrects this misconception with the one value system – God good is All-in-all of which there is no other.

Only as we individually see this point can we dehypnotize the situation, disconnect from the mortal picture. Then we will see and demonstrate here and now heaven, harmony – all things working together for good – thus we have a unified field, the "Unity of Good".

Scriptural Foundations
by Mary Baker Eddy
November 3

"In following these leadings of scientific revelation, the Bible was my only textbook. The Scriptures were illumined; reason and revelation were reconciled, and afterwards the truth of Christian Science was demonstrated. No human pen nor tongue taught me the Science contained in this book, SCIENCE AND HEALTH; and neither tongue nor pen can overthrow it. This book may be distorted by shallow criticism or by careless or malicious students, and its ideas may be temporarily abused and misrepresented; but the Science and truth therein will forever remain to be discerned and demonstrated."

Guidance of Members
by Mary Baker Eddy
November 3

A Rule for Motives and Acts. SECTION 1.
Neither animosity nor mere personal attachment should impel the motives or acts of the members of The Mother Church. In Science, divine Love alone governs man; and a Christian Scientist reflects the sweet amenities of Love, in rebuking sin, in true brotherliness, charitableness, and forgiveness. The members of this Church should daily watch and pray to be delivered from all evil, from prophesying, judging, condemning, counseling, influencing or being influenced erroneously." (Man. 40:4)

"Daily Prayer. SECT. 4.

It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to pray each day: "Thy kingdom come;" let the reign of divine Truth, Life, and Love be established in me, and rule out of me all sin; and may Thy Word enrich the affections of all mankind, and govern them!" (Man. 41:19)

"Alertness to Duty. SECT. 6.
It shall be the duty of every member of this Church to defend himself daily against aggressive mental suggestion, and not be made to forget nor to neglect his duty to God, to his Leader, and to mankind. BY his works he shall be judged, — and justified or condemned." (Man. 42:4)

What is Christian Science?   What is Christian Science Healing?

"Christian Science is the explication of Truth, reducing to human apprehension and demonstration the infinite Principle, divine Love, God-manifested in the annihilation of sin, sickness, and death. Christian Science is Christ Science, or Immanuel knowledge, and involves the ultimate of all reason, revelation and inspiration."
