Natal t’lah tiba

Dari Bentara Ilmupengetahuan Kristen - 1 Desember 2012

Diterjemahkan dari Christian Science Sentinel, edisi 20 Desember 1952


Hari ini, adakah Kasih berbicara padamu
Dengan cara yang mulia dan baru?
Maka, Natal t’lah tiba.

Sudahkah iman datang membantu
Buangkan kegelapan dan ragu?
Maka, Natal t’lah tiba

Sudahkah takut diganti harapan
Atau duka dihapus kegembiraan?
Maka, Natal t’lah tiba.

Dan jika kau tahu kasih Allah padamu
Sepanjang tahun melimpah selalu,
Maka, tiap hari Natal adanya.

— Dorothy Close Adams

The Mission of the Herald

In 1903, Mary Baker Eddy established The Herald of Christian Science. Its purpose: "to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth." The definition of "herald" as given in a dictionary, "forerunner—a messenger sent before to give notice of the approach of what is to follow," gives a special significance to the name Herald and moreover points to our obligation, the obligation of each one of us, to see that our Heralds fulfill their trust, a trust inseparable from the Christ and first announced by Jesus (Mark 16:15), "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."

Mary Sands Lee, Christian Science Sentinel, July 7, 1956
