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 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:
[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, we are again partnering with SAFE’s Sponsor a Family program. SAFE is a merger of Austin’s Children Shelter and SafePlace, a non-profit organization providing safety and counseling for families affected by domestic violence and abuse. Paper angels will be hanging from the garland in the Children’s Room hallway, holding the personal wishes of individuals living in SafePlace transitional housing or those served through its counseling program.
To participate, simply take an angel shopping with you and purchase the item listed on the back (suggested spend is $25-$50 per angel). Bring your unwrapped gift to the Sunday School’s gift-wrapping, hymn-and-carol-singing, lunch-and-Christmas-cookie-par
