            The following excerpt is from the Red Book, compiled by Richard Oaks.  I have made a few changes to the writing.  [All of my comments will be in these types of brackets.]

                                                CHRISTMAS

            Isaiah 9:5 – “For unto us a child is born…”

            Over eighteen centuries ago, the advent of a babe stamped a new impress on history.
            Little dreamed the Emperor, enthroned in his gorgeous palace upon the Capitoline Hill, that a babe slumbering in a manger in the obscure hamlet of Bethlehem, a remote province of Assyria, was to establish an empire before which the power of the Caesars must dwindle into significance.  When the child Jesus was born, all the nations known of that period were in subjection to the government of Rome.  Around the Mediterranean shores were clustered the thronged provinces and majestic cities, that gave Rome the palm of dynasties.  The Atlantic Ocean was an unexplored sea.  The Indies had but a fabulous existence.  Rome was then the world, and Caesar was the governor of Rome.  He could do what he pleased with the property, the liberty and lives of over three hundred millions of people comprising the Roman Empire.
            Such power no mortal ever swayed before; such power no mortal will ever sway again.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS

The following is at the very end of my post – “The Spiritual Idea” – pt. 2.  I wanted to add to it after seeing The Da Vinci Code again (on March 24, 2017).  I have added new material to the post.  I will not go into as great of detail as I could about The Da Vinci Code because I have eleven-part post on it elsewhere called – The Da Vinci Code Uncoded.  (If you have read SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS before April 9, 2017, there have been a few additions made.)

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 2

CHAPTER 10 (Continued)

                                                         SCIENCE
             THE PARAMOUNT MATRIX (1894) – EARTH*STAR VOYAGER
                                    “THE EDIFICE – MOTHER’S CHURCH
                        “The First Tabernacle—“creation,” (S&H 517:9)

Shadowchurch

            In the drawing above of The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, it stands alone without the Extension.  Notice that there is the dove of divine Science descending down with a detached branch in its beak.  This matches the dove seen in the second drawing for the eleventh Illustration in Christ and Christmas titled THE WAY (seen below is part of THE WAY, as the dove is hard to make out in the full view I have of the Illustration).

            “The (little) Mother Church is the best interpreter of the limitations of ‘Mother.’  It is lighted by {a star with seven points of light, in the skylight of the auditorium (a picture of this skylight is seen further on)} …and the vestibule leading to Mother’s Room (the latter closed in 1908, Nov. 21, 1908, Sentinel), is also lighted by a seven pointed star {which I do not have a picture of}.” (p. 474)

Bird's Eye View

            Above is a drawing I did, several years ago (even before I saw a satellite photo of the Church) of the original Edifice in Boston.  I am not sure I am accurate with the directions in it either (without actually going there and knowing where true North is located at).  The skylight window is oversized.  In the center of the skylight is the seven-pointed Star, like the one seen in the Vestry.  Below is a close up of what Assembly would look like if it had taken place in the Disney movie Earth*Star Voyager.

Assembly

            To me the seven points of each star represents the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  At this time I would like to insert a portion of a letter written by David Nolan in 2003 about Mother’s Room.

“The Spiritual Idea” Part 2

            The following excerpts are from Chapter 1 of AS IT IS, by Alice Orgain (beginning on page 17 and ending on page 90).  In this chapter she explains the difference between “a spiritual idea” and “the spiritual idea.”  She also speaks about Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas.  This is a topic I have spoken a great deal upon, but I think that Alice Orgain has some interesting ideas upon the topic and this is the main reason for presenting this chapter to you.  I have made certain corrections in typing mistakes (misspelled words), punctuation, and when a magazine or book is mentioned I have used italics.  I will also capitalize all letters in BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  All of the words in capital letters, besides the titles of the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH were originally in small caps in the book.  {All of my interpolations will be in grouping brackets.}  [When I am not quoting Orgain’s book my interpolations will be in regular brackets.]
