Letters from the Field

"'I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation' is a declaration which every Christian Scientist should be able to make. An insistent sense of gratitude moves me to send a testimonial, through the Christian Science Sentinel, to send great congregation,' concerning the Sanatorium of The Christian Science Benevolent Association, in Brookline, Massachusetts.

"Drawn by a pressing human need, I became a guest of that peaceful home last May, and remained therein for a period of seven weeks. This home is, in more than one sense, as a city 'set on an hill;' and its presence is another proof of Mrs. Eddy's loving understanding of the Word 'made flesh,'—made practical. The material aspect of the buildings, from an artistic standpoint, is beautiful as to form and color and appointment, and is made yet more so by the Christilike thoughtfulness and tenderness everywhere apparent. We have to thank our Leader for this demonstration. Mrs. Eddy, in desire and thought, laid the foundations of this splendid work. Jesus himself had pointed the way. The little home in Bethany where dwelt Mary, Martha, and Lazarus was the congenial resting place to which 'Jesus ofttimes resorted,' after the problems of the days in Jerusalem. And the inn by the Jericho road presents a kindred example of tender solicitude for the stranger on earth. Words of appreciation and praise are due to all those who have had or are having anything to do with constructing, maintaining, managing, or serving the Sanatorium. The institution was born of compassionate, Christlike love, and through its ministrations it is perpetuating and demonstrations the Savior's words, 'Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.'
