The attempt to mix matter and Mind, to work by means of both animal magnetism and divine power, is
30literally saying, Have we not in thy name cast out devils, and done many wonderful works?
But remember God in all thy ways, and thou shalt
1find the truth that breaks the dream of sense, letting the harmony of Science that declares Him, come in with
3healing, and peace, and perfect love.
SUNDAY SERVICES ON JULY FOURTH
— EXTEMPORE REMARKS
6The great theme so deeply and solemnly expounded by the preacher, has been exemplified in all ages, but chiefly in the great crises of nations or of the human race.
9It is then that supreme devotion to Principle has espe- cially been called for and manifested. It is then that we learn a little more of the nothingness of evil, and more
12of the divine energies of good, and strive valiantly for the liberty of the sons of God.
The day we celebrate reminds us of the heroes and
15heroines who counted not their own lives dear to them, when they sought the New England shores, not as the flying nor as conquerors, but, steadfast in faith and love,
18to build upon the rock of Christ, the true idea of God — the supremacy of Spirit and the nothingness of matter. When first the Pilgrims planted their feet on Plymouth
21Rock, frozen ritual and creed should forever have melted away in the fire of love which came down from heaven. The Pilgrims came to establish a nation in true freedom,
24in the rights of conscience.
But what of ourselves, and our times and obligations? Are we duly aware of our own great opportunities and
27responsibilities? Are we prepared to meet and improve them, to act up to the acme of divine energy wherewith we are armored?
