Christian Science service focuses on Spirit

The holidays can sometimes feel overwhelming with demands on one's time, energy and finances, yet the purpose of the Christmas season is to celebrate the spiritual strength we all share; this allows us to set aside the concepts of limitation.

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee,” (Psalms 55:22).

On Sunday, Dec. 11, the Christian Science service will focus on how Spirit nourishes, preserves, and protects all of creation. Join us in celebrating this constant support through prayer: “let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me,” (Psalms 40:11).

“The calm, strong currents of true spirituality, the manifestations of which are health, purity, and self-immolation, must deepen human experience, until the beliefs of material existence are seen to be a bald imposition,” ("Science and Health").

Services begin at 10:30 a.m. at 15910 Highway 525, just north of Bayview and across from Useless Bay Road.
