Is man defined by statistics or part of God’s infinite creation?


  • What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
    Holy Bible, Psalms 8

    The absolute ideal, man, is no more seen nor comprehended by mortals, than is his infinite Principle, Love.

    Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 520

  • Rather than being defined by a personal history, a physical body, an age, or a bloodline, you are defined by the nature and essence of God.

  • O Father-Mother God, whose plan
    Hath given dominion unto man,
    In Thine own image we may see
    Man pure and upright, whole and free.
    And ever through our work shall shine
    That light whose glory, Lord, is Thine.

In response to the current BC health authority requirement to limit large public gatherings, some branch Churches and Societies are taking steps to offer alternative on line Sunday and Wednesday services, Sunday School, and access to Christian Science publications and resources by appointment.

Please see individual branch Church and Reading Room pages on this website for details and updates.


How I am praying about the pandemic

with Virginia Hughes
April 29, 2020 – Sentinel Watch

On this edition of Sentinel Watch, we have invited our guest to share how it has come to her to pray in response to the pandemic. As she walks us through her thought process, step by step, she shares some thought-provoking “guidelines” that came to her for how she could pray more effectively and deepen her conviction in the healing scope of God’s all-inclusive love.

As our guest says, as we pray to know how we can pray better during these demanding times, we will each get our own unique answer from God.
