Message for August 2018
Published on: 7 August 2018

Dear Friends,
 
I know you are having a glorious sun-filled summer if you are in the northern hemisphere,  and a gentle autumn and winter if you are in southern parts – because you are always in the Kingdom of Heaven, where one of the conditions is that you are in “the atmosphere of Spirit, where Soul is supreme.”  (SH 590:1)
 
During the last few weeks I have been studying and pondering our Leader’s Chapter in her Textbook that entitled “The Science of Being”.  She has a further 34 direct references to “the Science of being” in difference places in the Textbook and in her other writings a further 22 references.  This is really the central chapter of the Textbook, and her preface to it is the words of St. John:
 
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life, . . . That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ” (SH 268)
 
So in this chapter our Leader is sharing with us specifically what she has seen and heard from God, so that we too may have fellowship with God, our Father, and with the Christ.
 
I would love to invite you to join me in making this chapter your summer study assignment!  You will find it inspiring, enriching, very foundational, healing and indispensible to each one of us as students of Christian Science.  And as you read it, keep in mind that its title is “The Science of BEING” not “The Science of BECOMING”.  It is the Truth NOW!

Your Fruitage reports.
 
Thank you so much to those of you who have already sent in your Fruitage reports.  I have only read a few of them, but am planning to have a “Grant Fruitage Day” when I read through all your reports and rejoice with you in your unfoldments!  That is always a wonderful day for me!
…………………………………………………………………….
 
I send you all such warm love,
 
Jill
