Walking the Dog and Petting the Cat

I am taking the time to “pet sit” in Seattle! I have a happy Dachshund and cat to watch. They are superb supporters of love and life, which gives me time to work on the 4th edition of 21st Century Science and Health.

The human language is ever-changing and therefore to stay relevant, revisions and updates are necessary. The task is amazing yet stupendous and time consuming. Oh yes, I’ve heard people say that all I need to do is study Science and Health as if it is a new language, like Chinese. It takes gargantuan effort to learn a new human language and fortunately this is not a condition to understanding Science and Health.

New ideas and discoveries have come to the forefront in the last century and they need to be incorporated into Science and Health. That is why Mary Baker Eddy revised the book hundreds of times, although her writing style is disjointed (I have yet to re-style the prose). Anyway, God would not require me to learn a particular human language set in some minute era of history in order to contemplate God and spiritual power.

God is, right now, speaking to us in a way we understand and experience divine goodness.

So, time for a walk on the Sammamish River Trail.

From Science and Health, “Spiritual ideas unfold as we advance…hence the many readings given the Scriptures, and the requisite revisions of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.”
