Don’t skip the “meat and potatoes”

The fear and symptoms of illness began to abate as I grew in my spiritual understanding of God.

When I was in college, my mother gave me a subscription to the Sentinel and to the Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lessons. However, I was more inclined to read the former than the latter. 

The weekly Christian Science Bible Lessons are composed of citations from the Holy Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. In the Manual of The Mother Church, Mrs. Eddy referred to this Bible Lesson as “a lesson on which the prosperity of Christian Science largely depends” (p. 31). My mother described these weekly Lessons as our spiritual “meat and potatoes.”
