Gratitude Expressed

Last Thanksgiving Day the Christian Science Churches for the first time held public services. This brought out fresh acknowledgment of our many occasions for gratitude. In "Miscellaneous Writings," Mrs. Eddy says, "We may well unite in thanksgiving for the continued progress and unprecedented prosperity of our Cause" (p. 110). Could there be a more unselfish and impersonal thought than this?

We cannot make an estimate of our indebtedness to Christian Science. We only know that by its ministry we have been rescued from dangers seen and unseen; that by a "power not our own which makes for righteousness," our thought has been lifted to a nearer sense of God; and that health and happiness in larger measure have come to our experience. Yet, while we are rightly grateful for physical and spiritual benefits which accompany God's gift to this age, is there not infinitely greater reason for thankfulness? We should rejoice that God has revealed Himself; that His Cause is being established on earth; that it prospers; and above all that we can share the exalted privilege of bearing this message to others.
