This is from Mrs Eddy’s “Message for 1902” (p.19). The paragraph it’s taken from reads: “O glorious hope! there remaineth a rest for the righteous, a rest in Christ, a peace in Love. The thought of it stills complaint; the heaving surf of life’s troubled sea foams itself away, and underneath is a deep-settled calm.”
If you are looking for some of that “rest in Christ” and you are in the Chicago area, please join us for “a spiritual staycation in the heart of Chicago“.
I have been invited to the windy city to present both my lectures in one day. So if you want to hear “Prayer that transforms us” (11am) or “Mary Baker Eddy’s legacy: 150 years of practical spirituality” (3pm) come along and join us next Saturday (April 8), at the architecturally renowned Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist, Chicago..
Or if you can make a day of it and stay for both, brilliant! There’s plenty to do locally during the extended lunch break, as a local friend tells me!
“They can go out to eat at one of the many delicious restaurants nearby, walk along the river walk, go up to the Sky Deck in Willis tower, 103 floors up! They can also go to the Art Institute, just half a mile from church, and a great walk, which is near Millennium Park which features what everyone calls ‘the bean’, officially named, ‘Cloud Gate’, and has all sorts of things to do! There’s also a massive, and I mean massive, playground called Maggie Daly Park, a 20 acre space with things to climb up, slide down, swing on, meander through.. it’s lovely! So yeah, there are plenty of things to do! ”
