Looking for something to do with the kids this summer that continues their spiritual education? We’ve planned a number of Wednesday Play & Pray dates over the summer. We’ll meet up at the downtown Austin church (1309 Guadalupe Street) for the Wednesday meeting of healing and inspiring testimonies; then head out for a fun place to eat lunch and play. Check the Calendar for upcoming events as they get scheduled. PS – the kids love the testimony meetings in which they frequently contribute their own testimonies of healing to. This activity is sponsored by Discovery Bound.
DiscoveryBound is an interactive international community for Christian Scientists and their friends where they see Christian Science in action. It’s fellowship that doesn’t replace church, but supports it, by providing an environment where everyone is free to share how they are studying and living Christian Science and develop relationships that nurture this commitment. Get involved at www.discoverybound.org.

This article in today’s Christian Science Monitor provides a refreshing take on what’s next after graduation. PS – there’s no need for mixed emotions between a job well done with fear of what’s next. http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/Articles-on-Christian-Science/2010/0514/Graduation-what-s-next
It’s amazing how a change of thought alone can change one’s circumstances. I was helping a friend last week who was having a pounding bad headache all day and had missed work because of it. He couldn’t stop talking about the pain. We decided right there and then to turn out thoughts away from the pain and consider what God had to say about his head. Together, we reasoned that since divine Love [God] had made him in Love’s image and likeness and that God declared all that he had made to be good (Genesis 1), then my friend could claim all of that inherent goodness right now. His true state of health was based on God as Spirit and Good. His well being is dependent on God, not a material head. We were both so inspired at that moment, and the headache immediately left. My friend enjoyed the rest of his evening filled with family activities. What changed? It was thought alone – gaining a better understanding of his natural and permanent spiritual qualities healed him.
