Truth's Sustaining Power

[We are privileged in being able, through the courtesy of the writer of the following letter and the one to whom it was addressed, to present to our readers this confirmatory testimony of the sustaining power of Truth experienced by those who even in the midst of seeming dangers rely upon omnipotence.—The Editors.]

I SUPPOSE that in a letter from the front you will expect to hear something about the war, but I am going to write about something of far more importance than the material side of the war; in fact I am going to write about something which makes war, even when you are in the thick of it, appear foolish and unreal, despite the so-called horrors which material sense tries to tell us are so apparent.

After a few months' experience of the conditions out here, I think a good many people came to the conclusion that there is only one thing worth living for, only one thing worth thinking about, and that is God. Of course they have been forced to this conclusion, in a way, as a result of the terrible human experiences which they have been through. However, if men have advanced to such a state of spiritual understanding as this without the help of divine Science, you can draw your own conclusions as to what I have gained in understanding with that help.
