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.

 

Friday, July 14 @ noon – Mets Conference Call on deepening metaphysical prayer

“What is needed, then, is to rekindle individually that fundamental spark of spiritual vitality. Then because one is so imbued with infectious delight with what one is discovering of spiritual reality, the spark ignites and the flame of spiritual purpose grows in our daily life. A great desire to share this holy glow with others impels thought and action. This cannot help resulting in a vibrant, dynamic church that is an irresistible attraction to others, because it is alive with the Christ-spirit of sharing and real love.” Increasing spirituality—growing church by Jill Gooding  June 1989 issue of The Christian Science Journal. 

All (church & non-church members) are invited to join the conference and prepare by reading the above wonderful article with the idea of deepening our metaphysics for the church and Reading Room in mind.  

The 2nd Mets Conference Call will be Monday, July 31st at 7 pm
to continue the discussion and consider the revelation, reason and demonstration of spiritual growth.
