The Church Soloist

Many rare experiences come to those who have the privilege of being soloists in Christian Science churches,—experiences which prove Mrs. Eddy's wisdom in making the solo an important part of the church service. One such experience recently occurred to the writer and unfolded much that filled her heart with gratitude.

The subject of the Lesson-Sermon for the following Sunday was "Christ Jesus," and the solo to be sung was a rendering of Mrs. Eddy's beautiful hymn "Christmas Morn" (Poems, p. 29). In studying the words of the solo, in order that the spiritual meaning might appear to her consciousness, a broader, freer conception seemed to dawn upon the soloist's thought.
