Let every dear sister and brother in the one family of the Father and Mother Love, know that the apostolic days have never gone; for all is God's perfect day. Let us know, that wherever the "lecturers," or apostles of to-day, go, healing will result from the "spoken Word." Let us remember these are "sent forth" (original meaning of apostle) by our "Mother" in "Israel" to "publish Peace," and proclaim the kingdom of God on earth, to spread the "gospel" of Life, Truth, and Love Eternal, the kingdom of Heaven at hand. Then we shall see again the fulfilment of the Law of Love, in the words of our "Master," "Maiden, I say unto thee, arise;" for, as the "Mother" says in her wonderful poem, "Christ and Christmas," "Sharon's rose must bud and bloom in every heart," which she explains, "God manifest in the flesh." Let these "gospels" (good tidings) be "works" not "words" only. Let us cast out such unscientific remarks and thoughts as accompany popular "lecturers," "very pretty," "very instructive," "very entertaining," "very clear," "nothing new," and then do nothing but go to sleep again. Rather let us all "work" and "demonstrate" that this is the word of God to His people. We do not want common opinion, but the baptism of the Pentecostal feast to rest upon these meetings. (Acts, 2 : 1—4.) Also see Science and Health, p. 340, one page, and p. 340, lines 4—12, which might well be read and pondered by every one in the audience before each lecture: "The field is white for the harvest," and these are the reapers, sent by Love, and we must realize with our beloved Shepherdess, who is feeding His lambs, "The laborers are few in this vineyard of Mind-sowing and reaping; but let them apply to the waiting grain the curving sickle of Mind's eternal circle, and bind it with bands of Soul;" then this will be true and manifest: I am God, and there is none else."
