Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, January 20, 1946, is "Life". The golden text is "He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting". (Galatians 6:8) 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: "My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days, and long- life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Trust In the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths". (Prov. 3:1,2,5,6) From the Christian Science, textbook is the following 1 : "Be watchful, sober, and vigilant. The way Is straight and narrow, which leads to the understanding that God Is the only Life. It is a warfare with the flesh, In which we must conquer sin, sickness, and death, either here or hereafter,—certainly before we can reach tho goal of Spirit, or life in God", (p. 324) For Sale—Purebred Milking Shorthorn bulls, up to 15 months old; reds and roans; choice individuals and popular breeding.
