God's allness and great love for all His creation, coupled with our love for Him, each other, and ourselves—
that's what the Christian Science Bible Lessons are all about. At these services you will hear about God's deep love for each of us, His children. The sermon is from the Bible Lesson/Sermon, read throughout the week by Christian Scientists, around the world, which allows people to heal, comfort, reform, and even transform themselves. 
Please come to our Sunday Services to hear the Word and how to apply it to your daily life.
You are also invited to come to our Wednesday Evening Testimonial Meeting where, following readings from the Holy Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, attendees give their experiences, including healings,  received through their study of the Bible and using Christian Science teachings.

The Holy Bible, King James Version 

1. Job 42:1–5

Then Job answered the Lord, and said, I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine

eye seeth thee.

2. Isa. 35:1–5

The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as

the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency

of our God. ¶ Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a

fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

3. Prov. 15:28–30 (to :), 31

The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. The

Lord is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous. The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart: ...

The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.

4. Prov. 20:12

The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them.

5. Mark 6:34 Jesus (to 3rd ,)

... Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, ...

6. Mark 7:32–37

And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is,

Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the

more a great deal they published it; And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.

7. Isa. 50:4, 5 (to 1st ,)

The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season

to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned. The Lord God hath opened mine ear, ...

8. Matt. 13:10–13, 15, 16

And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and

said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them

it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but

whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. ...

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed;

lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

9. Prov. 22:17

Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.

10. Rom. 10:13–15, 17

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! ...

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

 

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

1. SH 585:1

Ears. Not organs of the so-called corporeal senses, but spiritual understanding.

2. SH 7:23

God is not influenced by man. The “divine ear” is not an auditory nerve. It is the all-hearing and all-knowing Mind, to whom each need of man is always known and by whom it will be supplied.

3. SH 183:21–29

Divine Mind rightly demands man's entire obedience, affection, and strength. No reservation is made for

any lesser loyalty. Obedience to Truth gives man power and strength. Submission to error superinduces

loss of power.

Truth casts out all evils and materialistic methods with the actual spiritual law, — the law which gives sight

to the blind, hearing to the deaf, voice  to the dumb, feet to the lame.

4. SH 350:16–27

The Master often refused to explain his words, because it was difficult in a material age to apprehend

spiritual Truth. He said: “This people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their

eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”

“The Word was made flesh.” Divine Truth must be known by its effects on the body as well as on the mind, before the Science of being can be demonstrated

.

5. SH 210:11–16

Knowing that Soul and its attributes were forever manifested through man, the Master healed the sick,

gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, feet to the lame, thus bringing to light the scientific action of

the divine Mind on human minds and bodies and giving a better understanding of Soul and salvation.

6. SH 213:20–4

Mozart experienced more than he expressed. The rapture of his grandest symphonies was never heard. He was a musician beyond what the world knew.

This was even more strikingly true of Beethoven, who was so long hopelessly deaf. Mental melodies and strains of sweetest music supersede conscious sound. Music is the rhythm of head and heart. Mortal mind

is the harp of many strings, discoursing either discord or harmony according as the hand, which sweeps

over it, is human or divine.

Before human knowledge dipped to its depths into a false sense of things, — into belief in material origins which discard the one Mind and true source of being, — it is possible that the impressions from Truth were

as distinct as sound, and that they came as sound to the primitive prophets. If the medium of hearing is wholly spiritual, it is normal and indestructible.

7. SH 215:4–7

If Spirit, Soul, could sin or be lost, then being and immortality would be lost, together with all the faculties

of Mind; but being cannot be lost while God exists

.

8. SH 262:17

Job said: “I have heard of Thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth Thee.” Mortals will echo Job's thought, when the supposed pain and  pleasure of matter cease to predominate. They will then drop

the false estimate of life and happiness, of joy and sorrow, and attain the bliss of loving unselfishly, working patiently, and conquering all that is unlike God. Starting from a higher standpoint, one rises spontaneously, even as light emits light without effort; for “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

9. SH 486:23

Sight, hearing, all the spiritual senses of man, are eternal. They cannot be lost. Their reality and immortality are in Spirit and understanding, not in  matter, — hence their permanence. If this were not so, man would

be speedily annihilated. If the five corporeal senses were the medium through which to understand God,

then palsy, blindness, and deafness would place man in a terrible situation, where he would be like those “having no hope, and without God in the world;” but as a matter of fact, these calamities often drive mortals to seek and to find a higher sense of happiness and existence.

10. SH 487:6

There is more  Christianity in seeing and hearing spiritually than materially. There is more Science in the perpetual exercise of the Mind-faculties than in their loss. Lost they cannot be, while Mind remains. The apprehension of this gave sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf centuries ago, and it will repeat the wonder.

11. SH 488:20–24

The corporeal senses can take no cognizance of spiritual reality and immortality. Nerves have no more sensation, apart from what belief bestows upon them, than the fibres of a plant. Mind alone possesses all faculties, perception, and comprehension.

12. SH 526:8–10

Belief is less than understanding. Belief involves theories of material hearing, sight, touch, taste, and smell, termed the five senses.

13. SH 489:13–29

Corporeal sense defrauds and lies; it breaks all the commands of the Mosaic Decalogue to meet its own demands. How then can this sense be the God-given  channel to man of divine blessings or understanding? How can man, reflecting God, be dependent on material means for knowing, hearing, seeing? Who dares to say that the senses of man can be at one time the medium for sinning against God, at another the medium for obeying God? An affirmative reply would contradict the Scripture, for the same fountain sendeth not

forth sweet waters and bitter.

The corporeal senses are the only source of evil or error. Christian Science shows them to be false, because matter has no sensation, and no organic  construction can give it hearing and sight nor make it the medium of Mind. Outside the material sense of things, all is harmony.

14. SH 89:20–21

Spirit,  God, is heard when the senses are silent.
