What does it take to be healed spiritually? — “Now, how we work on the mental concept is another area where Christian Science stands out; we don’t work with our human mind, our mortal mind, or, as the Bible says, the carnal mind, and try to change it. Christian Science goes to the divine Mind, which is God, to get the right thought about our true spiritual identity as God’s idea or expression — and that improves the body. When we look away from matter to Spirit, we see Spirit producing the healing effect.” — Mark Unger
Divinity’s embrace of our humanity — ” . . . out human capacities need not be vulnerable expressions of material belief. Instead, they can increasingly show forth the eternal strength, clarity, sharpness, and freshness bestowed on us by divine Mind.” — David Kennedy
Testimony of healing — “One day . . . I ran across this quote referring to Christ Jesus: ‘The great Way-shower illustrated Life unconfined, uncontaminated, untrammelled, by matter’ (Mary Baker Eddy, Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896, p.30). I looked up the meaning of untrammeled, as I was unfamiliar with it. One definition of it read ‘jot deprived of freedom of action, or expression;not restricted or hampered’ (lexico.com). The statement was so relevant to me and became uppermost in my thought daily.
‘The healing came gradually, almost imperceptibly. I became aware that I was moving more freely . . . I also naturally regained my normal weight, and my movement was fully back to normal. This healing required much mental discipline. . . I now look back on this as a time of growth in grace and humility. I learnt needed lessons in patience and persistence. Above all, I took away from this experience the necessity to express courage, boldness, and an unwavering trust in the incontestable power of God.’ — Libby Weir
