Movie night April 15th 2022 at 7pm in the Reading Room

April 12th, 2022

The Encinitas Christian Science Society is having a movie night this Friday, April 15th. The society will show the movie Luther at 7:00 pm in the Reading Room and there will be pop corn and drinks. Everyone is welcome.

Luther2003filmposterLuther is a 2003 historical drama film dramatizing the life of Protestant Christian reformer Martin Luther. It is directed by Eric Till and stars Joseph Fiennes in the title role.

Plot:
The film begins during a thunderstorm in 1505, as Luther is returning to his home. For fear of losing his life in the storm, Luther commits his life to God and becomes an Augustinian monk.

Two years later, Luther is a monk at St. Augustine’s Monastery in Erfurt. During his time at the monastery, he is constantly troubled by viewing God as a God of hate and vengeance. Martin is encouraged by Johann von Staupitz, an elder monk who is his supervisor and mentor. Staupitz tells Luther to look to Christ instead of himself.

Later, Luther delivers a letter for Staupitz to Rome, where he becomes troubled by the wicked lifestyles of those in the city. He also views the skull believed to be that of John the Baptist and purchases an indulgence. It is during this time that Luther begins to question the veracity of indulgences. Returning to Germany, Luther is sent to Wittenberg, where he begins to teach his congregation that God is not a God of hate, but a God of love. Luther begins to emphasize the love of God instead of his judgment.

In 1514, Pope Leo X becomes the new Pope of the Church, and commissions Johann Tetzel to go throughout several communities, including Luther’s town, where he scares people into buying indulgences, which would be used to rebuild and renovate St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and to recover the Hohenzollern bribes to the Holy See, advanced by Fugger, for the investiture of Archbishop Albert of Mainz and Magdeburg. In his church, Luther denounces the indulgences, calling them “just a piece of paper”. He then posts his 95 theses on the door of the church, calling for an open debate regarding the indulgences. For this act, Luther is called in 1518 to Augsburg, where he is questioned by Cardinal Cajetan among other church officials.

After his excommunication, Pope Leo X orders Luther to be delivered to Rome, but Prince-elector Frederick the Wise of Saxony becomes his protector. Frederick and Charles V decide that Luther will be tried at the Diet of Worms.

At Worms, Luther is brought before Charles V and the Cardinals for trial. The Cardinals demand for him to recant of his teachings, and Luther requests more time to give a decent answer, which is granted. The next day, Luther comes before Charles V and the Cardinals, who demand him to recant, and Luther refuses. After his trial at Worms, Luther is forced into hiding by Frederick the Wise who protects him by moving him into Wartburg Castle, while his former professor, Andreas Karlstadt, encourages the Great Peasants’ Revolt against the oppressive nobles. Luther, shocked by the revolts, encourages the princes to put them down. Meanwhile, Luther translates the Bible into German.

After Luther marries Katharina von Bora, a former nun, Charles V summons the evangelical Princes of the Holy Roman Empire to the Diet of Augsburg, so he can force them to outlaw Protestantism and the German Bible. The nobles refuse, and Charles is forced to allow the nobles to read their Augsburg Confession.

The film ends with the following words:

What happened at Augsburg pushed open the door of religious freedom. Martin Luther lived for another 16 years, preaching and teaching the Word. He and Katharina von Bora enjoyed a happy marriage and six children. Luther’s influence extended into economics, politics, education and music, and his translation of the Bible became a foundation stone of the German language.

Today over 540 million people worship in churches inspired by his Reformation.

Upcoming Sunday School Activity at the Encinitas Street Fair Saturday and Sunday April 9th and 10th, 2022

April 2nd, 2022

Come and join the Fun!

We need volunteers, Sunday school teachers, and or just come and be a part of the scene!

The Reading Room will be open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday and 10 AM to 4:00 PM on Sunday during the Encinitas Street Fair.  Parking is tight so it might be a good time to take the train!  Come by and say hi if you can.

We will have a hunt called “The God’s name game” in our Garden where the kids search for the seven synonyms for God.

IMG_1236 In our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy she defines God in the glossary as:

God. The great I AM; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-acting, all-wise, all-loving, and eternal; Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love; all substance; intelligence.

So we place the names: Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love around the garden to be found by the seekers.  Come by and join the fun and win a prize .

Click below to download a PDF of the game.

This game is based on ideas taught in a Christian Science Sunday school.  For more information about a Sunday School  click Here  .

 

Be a part of this exciting event by sponsoring the kids. Our goal is to collect enough donations to give out a shirt to every youth who participates.

At these Street Fairs we have had over 600 people come through our garden and into our Reading Room made up of children and adults chaperoning the children and individuals without children and many with dogs.  After the children fill out the God’s Name Game card with the synonyms for God they turn it into the Reading Room to win a prize.  If they take the T shirt challenge and can memorize all seven synonyms, they will get the free T-shirt as a prize.  So please support this great CS Sunday school activity and outreach to our community with the “power of Truth” and the “worthiness of Love”.

Gifted with agelessness by Mark Swinney Christian Science Sentinel JANUARY 20, 2022

February 5th, 2022

One summer morning when I was school age, I was playing golf with three players who had retired from their jobs years before. They were happy to include me, and right from the start we were having fun together. After one player hit his tee shot, I pointed to where it had gone, and with a hint of wistfulness in his voice he commented admiringly on my “young eyes.”

It was the first time I really took note of how ingrained the concept is that pain, restriction, erosion of abilities, and so on are inevitable as time goes by. The belief that we are destined to live a life that ultimately goes downhill is so widespread—do we stand a chance at overcoming age-based limitations?

I’ve come to find that, yes, we certainly do. Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “One with God is a majority.” That certainly is encouraging. It hints at how we are effectively governed and defended by God. Christian Science teaches that God is without an adversary. God is the one and only legitimate power, authority, creator.

So, one with God isn’t just a majority; really, one with God is a monopoly. That is, the inherent oneness we all have with our divine Parent is a powerful foundation for experiencing goodness and strength in our lives.

When our heartfelt prayers are impelled not just by human hopes, but by an acknowledgment of our true, spiritual nature, then the power of God undergirds and is behind them.

That’s because God doesn’t actually see each of us as aging and limited mortals. The manner in which God, divine Spirit, has created us is not based in matter. God’s children, the reflection of divine Spirit, are gifted with ageless, entirely spiritual identities. Jesus stated, “That which is born of the Spirit is spirit” (John 3:6).

And we don’t have to age or die in order to be spiritual. We have this status here in the present. Mary Baker Eddy asks an insightful question in her central work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Can there be any birth or death for man, the spiritual image and likeness of God?” (p. 206).

We each have the right to follow Jesus’ example and move beyond false beliefs (no matter how prevalent) about ourselves. Once even a little glimpse of our spiritual identity comes into view, we begin to recognize that there could be no aging process for what God has created.

The inherent oneness we all have with our divine Parent is a powerful foundation for experiencing goodness and strength in our lives.

And then we begin to experience victories over fear and limitations associated with aging—not because we’re trying hard to make this happen through willpower, but because our prayers are based in the goodness and rightness of God. When our heartfelt prayers are impelled not just by human hopes, but by an acknowledgment of our true, spiritual nature, then the power of God undergirds and is behind them.

The Sentinel and other Christian Science publications include many accounts of individuals who have experienced this firsthand. For instance, in “Our true selves—ageless and free,” a lifelong athlete shares how a better understanding of God’s nature, and of our nature as God’s spiritual offspring, freed him from painful symptoms he’d attributed to his age (see Bruce Butterfield, Sentinel, May 7, 2018).

Of course, much of what we see in the world around us would obscure the truth of our identity as ageless and spiritual. But it’s the spiritual fact for each one of us. We certainly could wait for everyone else to catch sight of this and then join them. Or, instead, we can humbly set our sights on this spiritual reality right now, and encourage others to, through our own prayerful efforts, based on God’s unchangeable truth, to live our inherent agelessness more freely.

As the Bible puts it, “God hath given to us eternal life” (I John 5:11). That’s a gift we each possess, and it never can be taken from any of us, God’s loved spiritual children.

Can you play a role in improving government? – E Pluribus Unum! Do you know what it means?

January 15th, 2022

E Pluribus unum, where have you seen this?  Well look no farther than your pocket, it is printed on our money and it is what our system of government is based upon and is it’s motto – Out of many, one.

Disturbing headlines about the state of the government in the US and other parts of the world can be paralyzing. But listen to this interview with Mark Sappenfield, Editor of The Christian Science Monitor, where he indicates that instead of being paralyzing, it can be galvanizing. What can an average citizen do to improve government? listen here to explore the possibilities.
