June 2017 — Links of Love

“Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit,
bringing us into newness of life….” *
∼Mary Baker Eddy

This edition of High Ridge House’s monthly ENews is dedicated to the quote above that is the theme chosen by the Christian Science Board of Directors for the June 5, 2017 Annual Meeting of The Mother Church.

Over the past year and more, restoration, renewal, regeneration, rebirth and similar concepts have been salient features in High Ridge House communications with our friends and supporters.

These “newness of life” ideas have always been central to our demonstration of Christian Science nursing. Recently, they have also been evidenced in fresh new décor at High Ridge House, thanks to numerous donations of furnishings and decorating talents. Also, we are grateful to be partnering on a fresh new way to give and receive benevolence that can help patients pay for the care received. (See April’s ENews about the new National Fund for Christian Science nursing.)

We rejoice over the opportunity to unite with our fellow Christian Scientists in a deepening understanding of this theme of “divine energy.” As we do so, we shall surely witness more of how “Christian Science silences human will, quiets fear with Truth and Love, and illustrates the unlabored motion of the divine energy in healing the sick” (Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy, pg 445).

We trust, that you, our many friends and supporters, feel this divine energy of Spirit permeate your experience and find your lives uplifted with newness of life and love.

With joy,

Marivic B. Mabanag
Executive Director

P.S. If you are in the New York City area, we hope that you will stop by High Ridge House to see and feel the renewal taking place here. Two special days to do so are June 24 (our annual Independence Day Picnic honoring volunteers) and September 16 (our Annual Meeting).

* From the “Renewed Selfhood” paragraph in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, pg 249.
