Keep Not Silent

"HOW beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!" If every silent song of rejoicing that issues continually from the grateful hearts of those who have felt the touch of Truth in Christian Science should be transferred to paper, it would be difficult to find books enough to contain them. Personal sense objects to testimony, either oral or written, wherein the glory is ascribed to God. It puts forth many arguments to delay and hinder the public acknowledgment of the good that has come to us in the privacy of daily living.

One earnest student was deterred for a time from giving expression to her deep and sincere gratitude for what Christian Science had done for her from a sense of timidity and depreciation of her ability. When, however, she learned that not all of the thousands of testimonies and other articles which appear in the Journal and Sentinel have been written in a leisure moment, rapidly typed by deft fingers, and tossed into the mail box, she gained courage to make an attempt. With her thought thus turned, she found the ideas coming and the article growing—"line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little"—till finally, after careful revision, it took on a proper form and was sent out to perform its mission.
