Wednesday Readings for Testimony Meetings

Featured

Wednesday Testimony Meetings are opened with a hymn, then carefully selected passages are read from The Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, on a topic the Reader (elected by the church members) has selected. After these readings, the congregation prays silently and repeats the Lord’s Prayer, followed by another hymn, and notices.

At this point, the meeting is opened up for those present to share experiences, testimonies of healing, or remarks on Christian Science. The hour-long meeting concludes with a hymn and is also available by conference call-in. (Email us at christianscience.morristown@gmail.com for the phone number and access code).

In our Textbook, Mrs Eddy likens Christian Science to “the ever-agitated but healthful waters of truth” (p. 254:27). At a time when waters appear very agitated indeed, but not very healthful, let us explore how we can restore healthful conditions, by turning to the Christian Science Pastor: the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
