"Substance" Subject of Lesson-Sermon at Local Science Church "Substance" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist Sunday. The Golden Text was from Romans 8:25, "If we hope for that we sec not, then do we with patience wait for it." The Lesson-Sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And God said Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, and it was so" upon the earth: (Gen. 1:1, 11). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "Creation is ever appearing, and must ever continue to appear from the nature of its inexhaustible source. Mortal sense inverts this appearing and calls ideas material. Thus misinterpreted, the divine idea seems to fall to the level ot a human or material belief, called mortal man, but the seed is in itself, only as the divine Mind is All and reproduces all--as Mind is the multiplier, and Mind's infinite idea, man and the universe, is the product. The only intelligence or substance of a thought, a seed, or a flower is God, the creator of it' (Pgs. 597 and 508). Talks Given by Monsignor and B. Dunn The Rt. Rev. P. S.
