Mrs. Sue H. Mims spoke on "Why I Am a Christian Scientist"...

Atlanta (Ga.) Journal

Mrs. Sue H. Mims spoke on "Why I Am a Christian Scientist" before an audience that completely filled the Universalist church, where ministers of different denominations have been invited to give the reason of their faith. There were many who stood in the aisles and at the rear of the church. Part of Mrs. Mims' address was as follows:—

I am a Christian Scientist because in an hour of great stress, when a despairing state of hopeless invalidism faced me, Christian Science came as the quickening "Spirit of truth," a beam from the "Sun of righteousness ... with healing in his wings," answering every aspiration of the soul, every question of doubting reason, healing my body, lifting me from a state of dependence and almost despair into one of joy and hope and usefulness and the activity for which I had longed. It stimulated a passionate love of God and humanity, and of the establishment of His kingdom on earth. Old things were passed away; and new motives, new aspirations opened the way to an enlarged sense of good. I have every reason to believe that but for Christian Science I would not be here before you tonight, for that it has added many years to my existence on earth is a fixed conviction on my part.

We'd love to hear from you!
