"AND THE RAIN DESCENDED."

To the careful, scientific observer there is an intensely practical side to Christian Science. Even though it is sometimes hard to amplify metaphysical truths by the use of ordinary English, yet do not business men and women find ways to apply the gospel of Truth to current affairs, even amid the noise and turmoil of commercialism?

In the great cities of our land where the adherents of Christian Science are many, there is a current saying that you may know a Christian Scientist the moment you set eyes on him, be he stranger or friend; that his air of confidence, cheery looks, and settled convictions give to his every movement the flavor of accomplishement and fixedness. This may be a little overdrawn, but it is nominally true to him or her who keeps an eye open to the study of humankind. A Christian Scientist who truly lives the life his text-book teaches, needs no other capital. As he builds, his house endureth, for the superstructure thereof is not to be shaken. "And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, ... and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock."
