Christianity as Jesus taught it was not a creed, nor a ritualistic Jehovah; but it was the demonstration of divine Love casting out error and healing the sick, not merely in the name of Christ, or Truth, but in demonstration of Truth, as must be the case in the cycles of divine light.
Mary Baker Eddy
(Science and Health 135: 26-32)
by Rev. Paul Peck
Hark! God’s voice now softly speaking,
Turns man to Eternal Love;
Oversoul keeps probing, seeking
Man’s attention from above.
Over and above the turmoil
Of harsh noises far and near;
Stilling every kind of roil,
‘Til man quiets every fear.
Speaking softly, Mind imparting
That which man must ever know;
Spirit’s presence ever bringing
Man into the eternal glow.
Living Truth in silent knowing,
Letting Love come shining through;
This is God and man e’er showing
Quietude that may renew.
Light of lights in radiant beaming
Guides me into gracious ways;
Gone the darkness of all seeming,
Comes the dawning of new days.
Quiet, Lord, all mortal senses
That befog and clutter thought;
Let me drop all my defenses,
As I Am what Thou hast wrought.
