Christmas Presence
“The true spirit of Christmas elevates medicine to Mind; it casts out evils, heals the sick, raises the dormant faculties, appeals to all conditions, and supplies every need of man. It leaves hygiene, medicine, ethics, and religion to God and His Christ….”
Mary Baker Eddy, "The Significance of Christmas"
(see Miscellany p.259)
Dear ,
Christmas came early this year.
The patient arrived at High Ridge House after surgery due to a fall. She was unable to walk freely.  Two weeks later, she went home, walking independently and without pain.  One Christian Science nurse remarked that this was the most rapid healing of this kind she had ever seen.  A more present sense of the Christ could be felt.
Christmas came often this year.
Throughout the year, the Christian Science nurses at High Ridge House have supported our patients’ demonstrations over challenges that seemed daunting at the time, but faded as the Christ became more real to them than the problem.  Acknowledging the arrival of the Christ is not merely a seasonal celebration at High Ridge House.  It is our daily joy to witness the ever-present Christ coming in fresh ways to human consciousness – lifting patients, families, and ourselves from a mortal picture of life to a clearer sense of divine Life.
We invite you to join with us in this kind of Christmas celebration.  We'll still have our holiday festivities – one will even be at High Ridge House in a few weeks (see the invitation at the top left).  But may we also discern the deeper significance of Christmas and take to heart the words of the poet Whittier found in Hymn 170:
Keep while ye need it, brothers mine,
With honest zeal your Christmas sign,
But judge not him who every morn
Feels in his heart the Lord Christ born.
The deep and healing insights of Christmas presence can come to us anew each day.  Now that is something to celebrate!
