Psalms 23

The Holy Bible
A Psalm of David.

1  The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

 

In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, pages 577- 578,
Mary Baker Eddy wrote:

    In the following Psalm one word shows, though faintly, the light which Christian Science throws on the Scriptures by substituting for the corporeal sense, the incorporeal or spiritual sense of Deity: 

PSALM XXIII

    [DIVINE LOVE] is my shepherd; I shall not want.

    [LOVE] maketh me to lie down in green pastures: [LOVE] leadeth me beside the still waters.

    [LOVE] restoreth my soul [spiritual sense]: [LOVE] leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for [LOVE] is with me; [LOVE’S] rod and [LOVE’S] staff they comfort me.

    [LOVE] prepareth a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: [LOVE] anointeth my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

    Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of [LOVE] for ever.

This Christmas season, our church is again partnering with
SafePlace’s Sponsor a Family program to fill some
needs and wishes. SafePlace is an organization
providing safety and counseling for families affected by
domestic violence and abuse. In the coming weeks, our
Sunday School teachers will be discussing how we can
use a metaphysical approach to healing domestic
violence and abuse, gift-giving and other subjects
pertaining to our Christmas event.

Starting on Wednesday, November 23, angel cards,
containing the personal need or wish of an individual in
the SafePlace program, will be hanging from the garland
in the hallway. Simply take an angel shopping with
you and purchase something from the list (suggested
spend is $25-$50 per angel).

Bring your unwrapped gift to the Sunday School for
storage (keep the angel with the gift!). Then join us on
Sunday, December 11
, immediately following church

services, to wrap gifts, sing hymns and carols and
enjoy lunch and Christmas cookies!

We look forward to an outpouring of love to our
community!
