I have attended Christian Science meetings, held in large churches, crowded with people; and I have been where there were only two or three met together to give thanks to God. Whether there are few or many, God's presence and care are always felt. I have sometimes gone to the meeting with some ailment,—it might be a headache or weariness, or only a load of care, but whatever the trouble, I have always been helped, and usually entirely cured, simply by being at the meeting. We are learning, in Christian Science, that all the promises in the Bible are true, and that they are intended for us here and now. We know of the God who forgiveth all our iniquities; who healeth all our diseases. We have realized the truth of the saying in Isaiah, "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength."

I am a teacher in the public schools, and Christian Science has taught me many lessons that a teacher needs to know. It has taught me to see the beauty of the child's character, and to be constantly on guard lest prejudice against one of the little ones should come in some subtle form. Above all, it has taught me to appreciate the privilege I have of being continually among the children. I pray constantly that I may pattern my life after that of him who said, "Of such is the kingdom of heaven."
