This is the day the Lord hath made!

November 30, 2020
By Christie Hanzlik, C.S., Boulder, CO

… examples in the third, fourth, and fifth sections are inspiration for us as we each pray to affirm that there is only one cause and creator—God, good. We can use this divine fact as a foundation in our prayer as we address the current crises including a pandemic, economic turmoil, rampant loneliness and isolation, and political strife… With untiring joy, we can move forward, confident that we will behold the ever-unfolding blessings of the promise: “This is the day which the Lord hath made…” (cit. B19, Psalms 118: 24)

Everlasting Grace and Mercy

October 26, 2020

The Responsive Reading complements the Golden Text, and challenges us to not judge or condemn, but rather to leave correction, restoration, and reformation to divine Love. 
Those of us in the United States are in the final week before our state and national elections.  It seems like there is a bitter divide and a temptation for lots of hostility.  It also seems as though—perhaps more than usual—people are condemning those who don’t agree with their views.   We could pray about this by applying the message in the Responsive Reading’s to politics (or any type of personal opinions).  Romans tells us to “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love” (Romans 12:10).

We can only see the real.

The Golden Text of this week’s lesson doesn’t deny that difficulties seem to come into our experience, but it does promises that God, divine Love, will wipe away our tears, and promises us comfort when we feel rebuked and condemned. (GT. Isiah 25:8) To put this in “circle terms”—the Golden Text promises that divine Love will correct and govern our clear sense that we are a whole circle without blemish or fault. The Responsive Reading offers the comforting reassurance that we are safe, as inhabitants of a holy place. God, divine Principle, governs and protects the order of our existence. We are promised, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; neither will the flame kindle upon you.” (Isaiah 43: 2)

You are God’s Holy Work!

August 30, 2020
By Christie Hanzlik, C.S., Boulder, CO

Please note that the ideas I’m sharing here represent just one view of the Lesson and are not the only way to approach it. For me, this week’s Bible Lesson on “Man” expands the definition of man. The Lesson encourages us to let go of an “old” view of man, and accept a “new” view that is the outcome of starting from an unburdened view of God. To the degree that we do this, we experience the unrestricted and unlimited potential of man.
