HEALING AND THE WEDNESDAY TESTIMONY MEETING

The services and meetings of a Church of Christ, Scientist, were established by divine inspiration. As we carry on these activities through inspiration, we shall fulfill the purpose which was designated for each one. The Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy were ordained as the Christian Science pastor. Consequently, all who attend our services on Sunday or Thanksgiving Day hear "a sermon undivorced from truth, uncontaminated and unfettered by human hypotheses, and divinely authorized," as the Explanatory Note in the Christian Science Quarterly says. At the Wednesday testimony meetings the congregation hears a message from the same pastor.

In our recognition of the divine authority of these two textbooks, the Bible and Science and Health, we are lifted above the feeling of attending an ordinary meeting to the realization that we are bringing ourselves into the very presence of God's Word. We must understand that at our church services, as in days of old, the place whereon we stand is truly holy ground. In this uplifted state of thought we are prepared to receive the Christ, Truth, and at the same time to close the door on the sense of material personality in God and in man. If we are alert, we go to our church services neither to extol nor to criticize personality, but to praise God and to bear witness to Him as His reflection.
