THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE READING ROOM

Three pictures come often to my thought. The first is of a busy forenoon in the heart of a great city—an arena where titanic forces meet in battle, and ten thousand thoughts struggle for supremacy; where motives of self-interest clash, and men are confused by influences they do not understand; where human authority stands ready to challenge a moment's simple rest, and the fear of censure and failure drives spontaneity from many a heart.

The second was taken at noontime—also in the heart of the great city. In a large upper room silence reigns. A few men from among the thousands who an hour ago wrought in the midst of the city's commercial activity, now sit here in silence, reading and thinking—reading not ledgers, thinking not of business. They are reading the Word of Truth and Life, thinking of the boundless goodness of God, and of man's true relation to Him. Sweet, sacred, silent hour! Footsteps of eternal peace!
