Zwijg, wees stil!

De Christian Science Heraut - 5 Juni 2015

Oorspronkelijk gepubliceerd in de mei 2015 editie van The Christian Science Journal.


Christus’ gebod is
“Zwijg, wees stil!”Markus 4:39
Gericht tot de stugge,
menselijke wil.

Sluit de deur
Voor roddelpraat
Vrees niet meer
En zorg vergaat

Wanneer de onrust
Is vergaan
Blijft diepe kalmte
En rust bestaan.

Het denken nu
Onder Gods bestuur,
Onthult de mens
Als heel en puur.

- Carol Dismore

The Mission of the Herald

In 1903, Mary Baker Eddy established The Herald of Christian Science. Its purpose: "to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth." The definition of "herald" as given in a dictionary, "forerunner—a messenger sent before to give notice of the approach of what is to follow," gives a special significance to the name Herald and moreover points to our obligation, the obligation of each one of us, to see that our Heralds fulfill their trust, a trust inseparable from the Christ and first announced by Jesus (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Mary Sands Lee, Christian Science Sentinel, July 7, 1956
