Thankful for Our Publications

Christian Scientists in a foreign country have peculiar reason to thank God for their church publications. We always look forward expectantly for the arrival of the Journal and Sentinel. Our publications seem to grow better: but on the other hand probably we value them more as we understand them better, always finding therein something to steady our thought.

The editorial in the Thanksgiving Day number of the Sentinel touched a responsive chord. Talking over the history of Christian Science in Mexico since the first little service during Christmas week of 1898, we realized our cause for Thanksgiving. Then we read the Proclamation of President McKinley and the Thanksgiving Proclamation of King David, the 136th Psalm, the Responsive Reading of our Lesson Sermon: "God the only Cause and Creator." We read from "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, pages 230 and 391, also appropriate paragraphs from our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." One of the Mother's hymns rounded out our little service, held, not at our hall but in our home.

The reading of the first testimonial in the Sentinel of November 29, was very helpful. It was a clear, direct, and honest admission of the operations of Christian Science; accepting the revelator of Christian Science together with the revelation she made possible, subscribing for the legitimate literature of the cause, and attending the regular services. If we follow the means appointed in Christian Science for our betterment, and are ever loyal to its teachings, we shall assuredly reap the results appointed.
