Olivier C. Sabin
Every day is a new beginning,
A hope for me and hope for you.
All the past things are past and over, The tasks are done and the tears are shed;
Yesterday's errors let yesterday cover, Yesterday's wounds which smarted and bled
Are healed with the healing which night has shed.
Yesterday now is part of forever,
Bound up in a sheaf which God holds tight,
With glad days, and with sad days, and
bad days which never
Shall visit us more with their bloom
Their fullness of sunshine or sorrow
Let them go, since we can not relieve
Can not undo and can not atone;
Here are the skies all burnished brightly,
In the chrism of dew and the cool of the dawn.
Every day is a fresh beginning;
Listen, my soul, to the glad refrain, And spite of old sorrow and older sinning,
And puzzles forecasted and possible pain,
Take heart with the day and begin
PAULINA B. SABIN
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews, xi, I.
We should act with as much energy as those who expect everything from themselves; and we should pray with as much earnestness as those who expect everything from God.-Colton.
Works without faith are like a fish without water, it wants the element it should live in. A building without a basis cannot stand; faith is the foundation, and every good action is as a stone laid.-Feltham.
Faith is the subtle chain
That binds us to the Infinite; the voice
-Mrs. E. O. Smith.
Therefore, love and believe; for works will follow spontaneous,
When we use the term faith, we mean understanding of the Truth. It is by the application of the perfect understanding and affirmation of the truth that all great work is done through what is termed metaphysical lines. The understanding that God is all and that man is His image and likeness is the faith which moves the mountains and accomplishes everything.-Bishop Sabin.
Lecture Delivered by Bishop Oliver C. Sabin Before the Evangelical Christian Science Church, Washington, D. C.
HE lecture this morning is upon the subject of Science of Being. This means the Science of Living, how to live and how to live properly. If we understand how to live in the manner that produces happiness, comfort, prosperity and all of the good things of life, then we are on the right road of the perfect living, or the perfect science of being.
These rays of light, as they have been brought into the world, have been met by that ignorant, that artless throng, with jeers, unbelief, cruelty and murder so far as has been in their power to create these conditions. They were not satisfied with destroying Jesus Christ, but
In the Scriptures we have
The world, from its earliest history, has been a mixture, mostly, of evil, growing from bad to worse, until we liken humanity to a great horde, rushing along a broad highway, hustling one another, rustling one another, each trying to grab that which belongs to the other, blind to the future, filled with fear, living in a trust that they know nothing of, a trust without foundation absolutely, and finally "rounding up," as the Western cowboy would say, in that general pound known as Oblivion, having crossed over the dam of death into a pall of blackness. That is the history of the world in a brief picture in all the past, with the exception of here and there a ray of light.
they hunted His disciples and, to make the annihilation more complete, a greater reward given to the capture and destruc-. tion of the writings of these earlier followers of Jesus than there was for destruction of their lives. The earlier disciples had what were called little property chests, which they could hide in the ground, and one man could pick one up and run off with it. In these they put the originals of the Scriptures, but so complete was the annihilation that there is not existing today anywhere. nor has been for over seventeen hundred years, one original document of the New Testament writers.
The old Jewish Bible was the history of the Jewish race, and I think that is exactly as they had it, but the writings of Christ and the writings of His Apostles were utterly destroyed. In
