A harvest of healing

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

The word translated thanksgiving in the Golden Text and Responsive Reading for this Christian Science Bible Lesson comes from a Hebrew word that implies extending the hands in adoration of God, perhaps as part of a chorus of worshippers. Christian Science has helped many people understand the importance of giving thanks to God, divine Principle, by extending their hands to help and heal others.

The ancient Hebrews understood themselves as a community designed by God to worship Him. The book of Leviticus describes the institution of one of their most important observances, the week-long Feast of Tabernacles, also called the Feast of Booths (see Section I, citation 2).
