Turn from the material world | RELIGION NOTES

When Jesus was tempted by the offerings that the material world had for him — food, power and wealth — he told temptation, “… Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10). With those words, Jesus was free of temptation.

The Christian Science service demonstrates at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 25, how you can negate the influences that create and feed the fear that God is not the only power and creator. The service is at 15910 Highway 525. All are welcome.
