  22. Shehernavaz N. Pundole says:

    My dears,
    As you graduate from C.S.N.T.S on April 14th, ’19, remember that you are constantly accompanied by the “Gentle presence”. You are prepared to stand firm in the truth as Mary Baker Eddy discovered it and are ready and able to meet and be victorious over every claim of error in your own thought. (Ever and always, isn’t it it is our own consciousness that needs to be pure and clear?) Consequently, we are clearly “tuned in” to Love inspiring us to think, speak, and act rightly. May you be unceasingly wide awake to the “peace and joy and power”.
    My warmest, most sincere congratulations and ever so much love,
    Shehernavaz N Pundole — Graduating Class of September 1971.

  23. Mary Ellen Barrett says:

  69. Pearl Spa KC says:

    Congratulations graduates!

  70. Warren Berckmann, CSB says:

    Dear graduate,

    What a wonderful act of devotion you have embarked upon! This certainly fulfills Jesus’ commandments to love God and love your neighbor as yourself and you will thereby be blessed in your work. No mortal thought of discouragement, limitation, nor any other of the would-be attempts of error to limit or arrest God’s work can ever succeed nor even enter consciousness. Why? Because, as Mrs. Eddy says, ““The divine understanding reigns, is all, and there is no other consciousness.” (SH 536:8)

    Congratulations on your completion of training resulting from consecrated work and dedication to our great Cause! Mrs. Eddy makes the following statement in regard to the birth of a new child (or divine idea), it certainly would apply to your work, “Its beginning will be meek, its growth sturdy, and its maturity undecaying.” (SH 463:15–16)


    Warren Berckmann
