Mrs. Eddy says, "Let us rejoice that we are subject to the divine 'powers that be' " (Science and Health, p. 249). It seems only right that I should add my mite to the great outpouring of gratitude to God for Christian Science, and the cause of my gratitude is that I know what it means to be subject to the divine "powers that be." I was born and brought up in a Christian Science family, and have never known any other religious teaching, or had a physician. Some attacks of sickness and of mental discord have come up, but they have always been overcome promptly by the truth. In addition to physical health I have been greatly helped through Christian Science in my school work and in my daily relations with my companions. Although I have but recently left school, I have begun to discover the great value of the Christian Scientist's knowledge of God to a young man just coming in contact with what the world believes to be the forces of evil, the errors of prevailing systems.

For the many benefits that I have enjoyed, I thank God, and my gratitude is also due to the beloved Leader who has reopened to us the Christ-way, showing us how to seek true success.—George A. Andrews, Granite City, 111.
