 Isaian 60:1

make every day an easter

Our Master, Christ Jesus, through his teaching and example showed people their real spiritual nature as God's children. His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) shows the steps we need to take to spiritualize our thoughts and lives.

This is how Mary Baker Eddy, in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, defined


"Spiritualization of thought; a new and higher idea of immortality, or spiritual existence; material belief yielding to spiritual understanding."

When spring comes, and nature begins to awake and blossom once again, we might also want to consider a renewal that takes place in our thinking and lives. This is the needed spiritualization, or resurrection in thought, that puts our real spiritual selfhood first. These higher thoughts lead to actions that bless our fellow human beings and naturally make us happy, too. They remind us that Jesus conquered brutal hate and death to show that Life is immortal.
