Still my favorite shoes
Jesus’ demonstrations sift the chaff from the wheat, and unfold the unity and the reality of good, the unreality, the nothingness, of evil.
We should remember that the world is wide; that there are a thousand million different human wills, opinions, ambitions, tastes, and loves; that each person has a different history, constitution, culture, character, from all the rest; that human life is the work, the play, the ceaseless action and reaction upon each other of these different atoms. Then, we should go forth into life with the smallest expectations, but with the largest patience; with a keen relish for and appreciation of everything beautiful, great, and good, but with a temper so genial that the friction of the world shall not wear upon our sensibilities; with an equanimity so settled that no passing breath nor accidental disturbance shall agitate or ruffle it; with a charity broad enough to cover the whole world’s evil, and sweet enough to neutralize what is bitter in it, — determined not to be offended when no wrong is meant, nor even when it is, unless the offense be against God.
The dawn of Truth and it’s fresh spiritual ideas are coming, knocking at your thought. Are you ready to accept them?
Thou art near, O Lord / Thou art TRUTH. Psalm 119:151
Throwback Thursday: The Dedication Services
The Mother Church Extension was completed in 1906, a year ahead of schedule and debt-free, thanks to contributions from Christian Scientists around the world. It seated around 5,000 people and contained a suite of offices for the church organization. On the day of the dedication, six services were held to accommodate everyone, with lines forming at 1:00 a.m.
