A growing, healing church

For the lesson titled "God the Only Cause and Creator" from May 28 - June 3, 2012

The title of this week’s Bible Lesson, “God the Only Cause and Creator,” conveys the firm, clear message that there is but one God. The “rain” in the Responsive Reading describes the pouring down of this understanding, and the “growth” relates to the resultant activity. Ezekiel plugs into a global locator to find the sanctuary mentioned in the Golden Text (see Psalms 77:13), and he discovers that God has set it in their midst forever (see Isaiah, chap. 45; Ezekiel, chaps. 36, 37).

This Lesson begins with an invitation to all creation to sing fresh songs to God in the Temple. They recall the tabernacle the Israelites carried with them in the wilderness. Its secret was the protection it provided at the realization of God’s all-power. Their portable tabernacle would develop into what Mary Baker Eddy called “the structure of Truth and Love” (Science and Health, p. 583, citation 3).
