The, golden text Is "What shall I render linto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord". (Psalms 116:12,13) Selections from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude ot thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Create In me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me". (Psalms 51:1,2,10) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "One's aim, a point beyond faith, should be to find the footsteps of Truth, the way to health and holiness. We should strive to reach the Horeb height where God is revealed; and the corner-stone of all spiritual building is purity. The baptism of Spirit, washing the body of all the impurities of flesh, signifies that the pure In heart see God and WILL the party who picked up the cable by the Clayton county snow plow in Grand Meadow township, please return it?
