A year-round prayer and promise - A Christian Science perspective from The Christian Science Monitor

The promise of Christ isn’t just for Christmastime.

A loved Christmas carol reminds me of one of my favorite messages – the message of God’s tender love for us all, which is not just for Christmas, but brings healing and inspiration year-round. The carol starts out by mentioning the stillness of the “little town of Bethlehem,” and there’s a quiet awe that comes through. One version of this carol ends: “Where meekness will receive him, still / The dear Christ enters in” (Phillips Brooks, “Christian Science Hymnal,” No. 222). To me, this is both a prayer and a promise. When we’re meek and receptive, we can feel that message of the Christ showing us God’s tender love, which Christ Jesus so fully expressed. It comes to our thought and uplifts us. And this isn’t just true for a few; all have the opportunity to avail themselves of this great gift of the Christ. How do we “unwrap” this gift through meekness? Read more.
