In reading the testimonies of healing which appear in our periodicals, one may note how many times the writers state that their interest in Christian Science was first aroused by reading copies of the Sentinel, Monitor, or Journal which friends had sent them from time to time. Furthermore, all readers of our literature must have read articles showing the opportunity there is for activity in the line of right endeavor, through sending Christian Science literature to one's friends and acquaintances after one has read it.

The writer awakened to this opportunity over a year ago, but as many of the articles seemed to apply to a present personal need or some expected difficulty, most of the magazines were filed for future reference. It has since been learned that this method and these motives are unscientific. As each day brings the Monitor, with its wealth of good reading matter, and the Lesson-Sermon needs time and thought each day, and as it seems inevitable that an increased mental activity such as Christian Science produces will manifest itself in a more active and useful life, little time or need was found for the rereading of old articles and testimonies. They consequently accumulated during the year, and were finally given away en masse.
