Thank you for another best summer yet!

EXERCISE DOMINION OVER WHAT LOOKS (to be) OUTSIDE of YOU—EVEN the ELEMENTS & extreme heat!
A Cobbey Crisler bonus GEM on Matt. 8:18-26 as in Luke 8:22-25, cit. B14 in this week’s Bible Lesson

[Cobbey:] “A stilling of the storm is an encouraging application given today’s weather concerns.
“(Matt. 8, Verse 26). “Jesus says, “Why are ye fearful,” immediately seeing the thought, reading the thought, “you of little faith.” He rebukes the wind and the sea; “and there was a great calm.” That tells us something about what it must mean in Genesis 1 (Verse 26) when man “was given dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air.”  Is it possible?  Is Jesus telling man it is possible that he can exercise dominion over the elements?  He has within him the kingdom of heaven dominion that can be exercised over what looks (to be) outside of him…]

AN ADDITIONAL SPARKLE OF A MONOLOGUE BY ONE OF DISCIPLES IN THE BOAT:

Ken Cooper wrote when this Bible event was in and earlier Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson: “This week I am sharing a monologue by one of the disciples caught in the storm at sea, with due sound effects!  [The link to see a YouTube version is https://youtu.be/Y_Z-BCwFBUw and the PDF’s are attached as Downloads atop CedarS webpage.]

“Jesus knew that God was and is the only cause and creator. Knowing that he could of his “own self do nothing” was the fundamental truth of all he expressed, and the power with which he healed. Likewise, all storms that we face, however severe, can be met with these same words of authority, “Peace, be still”, and the calm and presence of The Word is felt and witnessed.  In my monologue are the words “We looked at each other, hearts racing with fear of a different kind. It was as though the storm had never been.”  Truth removes all error.

“The monologue finishes with Jesus saying: “…nothing shall be impossible unto you” for nothing is impossible to God, the source of our reflection, nothing is outside the embrace and care of infinite Love.

“The storm had no history, no beginning, for the beginning of everything, of us, was and is the Word.”

MARY BAKER EDDY’S CONNECTION IN PROSE WORKS BETWEEN EXTREMISM AND “EXTREMES OF HEAT AND COLD;…”
“….
 love, unselfed, knocks more loudly than ever before at the heart of humanity and … finds admittance; … that religion and materia medica should be no longer tyrannical and proscriptive; that divine Love, impartial and universal, as understood in divine Science, forms the coincidence of the human and divine, which fulfils the saying of our great Master, “The kingdom of God is within you;” that the atmosphere of the human mind, when cleansed of self and permeated with divine Love, will reflect this purified subjective state in clearer skies, less thunderbolts, tornadoes, and extremes of heat and cold;…”
