Persecution and blessings

From the September 14, 2020 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


I grew up attending a Christian Science Sunday School, where, among other activities, we learned the Beatitudes (see Matthew 5:3–12 ), the series of blessings Jesus declared in his Sermon on the Mount.   This certainly was time well spent, because while we were learning to live the healing ideas of the Beatitudes, we were laying the foundation for our individual spiritual growth and learning how to be productive citizens of our community and the world.
