Of Good Report

A healing lecture in India

From the January 2018 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Members of my Christian Science Society in Chandigarh, India, were praying for our community in response to news of people under the attack of chikungunya and dengue fever. In addition, we wanted to share with our community the way to health through Christian Science. So, we organized a public Christian Science lecture called “Health—a birthright of each one of us,” to be delivered by a local Christian Science lecturer. 

Members of our Society were encouraged to pray and think radically about new ways of inviting people to this lecture. We prayed with two lines from a hymn: “We are hid with Christ forever / In the Father’s holy plan” (Nellie B. Mace, Christian Science Hymnal, No. 370, © CSBD). This hymn inspired me to pray like this: “This lecture is a reflection of the Father’s holy plan. And we are hid with Christ in God, Truth. We are led with inspiration in every activity. We are always about our Father’s work.”

It was enough for me in that moment to simply understand that God is omnipotent.
