Something is always influencing us, even when we don’t realize it. Is that influence leading in a good or not-so-good direction? Join us Sunday, May 31, 2015 at 10:00 am for our lesson sermon with the unusually long and odd-sounding title, “Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced.” You’ll discover how you can recognize and avoid negative influences and be open to good influences that come directly to you from a loving, all good, God.

Here are a couple citations from the lesson:

The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. — Psalms 33:10, 11

In a world of sin and sensuality hastening to a greater development of power, it is wise earnestly to consider whether it is the human mind or the divine Mind which is influencing one. — Science and Health p. 82

Our Sunday church service includes hymns, a scriptural selection, a solo, prayer, and a sermon based on readings from the Bible, with related readings from the book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, the discover and founder of Christian Science.
