Join us after the service every Sunday for a group reading (or you can just listen in) of the Sermon on the Mount. We read it from one of 17 Bible translations, without comment so you can feel for yourself what the words mean. We start about 11:15 and it takes about 15 minutes. A modest investment for the inspiration and insight you might gain for your day or your week.
The Sermon on the Mount, in the gospel of Matthew in the Bible, contains many of Jesus Christ’s most profound teachings. It has been an enduring source of guidance and inspiration to his followers. Our inspiration for this weekly reading is Mary Baker Eddy’s statement in her Message to The Mother Church in 1901:
To my sense the Sermon on the Mount, read each Sunday without comment and obeyed throughout the week, would be enough for Christian practice. The Word of God is a powerful preacher, and it is not too spiritual to be practical, nor too transcendental to be heard and understood. Whosoever saith there is no sermon without personal preaching, forgets what Christian Scientists do not, namely, that God is a Person, and that he should be willing to hear a sermon from his personal God! (p. 11:16)
