"COME AND SEE"

The above laconic expression was the reply of our Master to the inquiry of his two disciples, "Where dwellest thou?" as recorded in the first chapter of John's gospel. We are not told where his dwelling-place was, only that his disciples "went and saw" where he dwelt, and abode with him the remainder of that day. In seeking Christian Science we must respond to the same simple but kindly invitation, "Come and see,"—see if it is not the one thing needful to our happiness and prosperity, see if it will not help us in every way.

The writer well remembers his first talk with a Christian Scientist who with his family had just removed to our village from South Dakota, and were being pointed out as nice people who held peculiar religious views. To the inquiries, "Are your people Christian Scientists?" and, "Do they give treatment?" he replied in the affirmative, but to the question, "Of what do the treatments consist?" he said, "Come and see. Come to my house next Wednesday evening, and we will try to explain some of the fundamental teachings of Christian Science." A promise was given to do so, but during the intervening days much speculation was indulged in as to the course pursued in the healing of disease.
