I feel that I must express my gratitude for the knowledge of divine Principle, or God, which Christian Science has given me. It came to me in days of great need and healed me of many serious physical ills. My first healing through the application of Christian Science was that of a severe throat and lung trouble, the after effects of pneumonia, which had left me practically voiceless. This yielded easily to the truth. From childhood I had been under the care of physicians constantly and was always in a debilitated and nervous condition from a painful trouble with my back, due to an injury received when a little child, for which many specialists had treated me but without results. This was beautifully met through Christian Science treatment, and I am each day gaining more dominion. Since my first healing I have tried conscientiously to apply Christian Science not only to the solving of problems, but to avoiding problems,—healing thought before it is manifested as inharmony. In "A Rule for Motives and Acts" (Manual, Art. VIII, Sect. 1) the following warning is given: "Neither animosity nor mere personal attachment should impel the motives or acts of the members of The Mother Church." If we are sincere in searching, we will discover that all or nearly all of our acts that are making for inharmony have as their root either animosity or personal attachment or both.

Let us as Christian Scientists put the finger on the lips, still all thought or expression of error, and quietly alone with God, ask for guidance, with the receptivity of a little child, "endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace," so that all may come "in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ." I am deeply grateful to Mrs. Eddy for the teaching which she has given us, enabling us to overcome every phase of error.
