As one cousin puts it, this is the first crowd-sourced sermon she's seen. Being called on to substitute and conduct the Wednesday church service at the last minute, I wrote a facebook plea for friends to send in quotes from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy in light of the Boston bombings.
About a dozen people responded, plus a young friend's list of quotes from her friends. And now, on today's news, at MIT and Watertown, Massachusetts is still in our prayers, and these citations now formed into a sermon, are just as relevant.
Thank you everyone for getting involved, and staying involved.
Another friend wrote in "Cities all over the world appear to be blasted by the mesmerizing, “jarring testimony of the material senses.” In addition to the three people killed and many injured in the Boston marathon tragedy, other bombs also exploded in other cities around the world killing 55 people in Iraq; 30 people in Somalia and 30 children in Syria. Mental pictures from around the globe of fear, violence and helplessness, or anger and revenge, cannot disturb or blast away the spiritual evidence of our perfect unity with God and his reflection."
“No evidence before the material senses can close my eyes to the scientific proof that God, good, is supreme.” (Miscellaneous Writings by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 277:23-24)
