Letters to our Leader

Minneapolis, Minn., December 28, 1904.

Beloved Teacher and Leader:—As we stand on the threshold of the glad new year, full of hope and promise, we pause of a moment to give thanks to God and to you, His faithful messenger, for the countless blessings that have flowed into our lives during the past months. With the light of Christian Science comes "The freer step, the fuller breath, the wide horizon's grander view," and each year brings surer proofs of "divine goodness and love." In the present hour we count as our greatest blessing the opportunity to share in the building of The Mother Church. The love and gratitude of our church found its first expression in a contribution of three thousand dollars; and later, the sending of fifteen hundred dollars as a Thanksgiving offering sweetened the time with a fuller harvest song than we had ever known. A Christmas gift of three thousand dollars made that day holy with gladness. The dear children of our Sunday School, polishing their pennies to make them shine, have sent three hundred and twentyfive dollars with a love that can only find expression in the radiance of their eyes.

When we remember that every Christian Science church in the world is sharing with us this joy of giving, it is like the swelling of a grand chorus, echoing the song of the angels, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."
