First Church of Christ, Scientist in Darien to hold a Thanksgiving service
The members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Darien invites the community to a Thanksgiving service to hear an uplifting Bible Lesson, sing songs of thanksgiving and share expressions of gratitude from the congregation. The Thanksgiving Day proclamation of the President will also be read. The service will take place Thursday , Nov. 22 at 10:30 a.m at the church edifice, 2331 Post Road.
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, recognized the healing power of gratitude and was led to include this inspiring service on a holiday specifically designed to give gratitude. Near the turn of the 20th Century, she wrote that Thanksgiving: “…signifies to the minds of men the Bible better understood and Truth and Love made more practical; the First Commandment of the Decalogue more imperative, and ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself’ more possible and pleasurable.” Gratitude and healing go hand in hand, which makes the concept a central element of Christian Science.
This service is open to the public and all are welcome. No collection will be taken
