Letters from the Field

"As Thanksgiving draws near my thought turns naturally to the Christian Science sanatorium at Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts; for the outstanding blessing of the year was my experience as a guest there. I can never express in words my appreciation of all that was done for me. Only one who has been a guest there can have any idea what a beautiful experience it is. Among the many benefits derived and lessons learned, I think I am most grateful for the glimpse of the impersonal love of God which I obtained.

"I am doubly grateful that I can look back upon my experience there from the standpoint of both guest and associate, for it has been my great privilege to be both. The sanatorium was indeed a home to me in every sense of the word during the two years I spent there as an associate. Although I had never been away from home and family for any length of time before, I never once felt any sense of separation, so great is the spirit of love and brotherhood that prevails. I always felt that we were just one big family—one household—with one common purpose.
