Christian Science Thanksgiving Gratitude Service 2012 - Olympia WashingtonNear the turn of the 20th Century, Mary Baker Eddy wrote that Thanksgiving: “…signifies to the minds of men the Bible better understood and Truth and Love made more practical; the First Commandment of the Decalogue more imperative, and ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself’ more possible and pleasurable.

“It signifies that love, unselfed, knocks more loudly than ever before at the heart of humanity and that it finds admittance; that revelation, spiritual voice and vision, are less subordinate to material sight and sound and more apparent to reason; that evil flourishes less, invests less in trusts, loses capital, and is bought at par value; that the Christ-spirit will cleanse the earth of human gore; that civilization, peace between nations, and the brotherhood of man should be established, and justice plead not vainly in behalf of the sacred rights of individuals, peoples, and nations.”

In this spirit of expansive gratitude, please join us at our annual Thanksgiving gratitude service. It’s an hour rich with music, readings from the Bible and Science and Health, and expressions of gratitude, and it starts at 10:00 am on Thanksgiving morning .
