Like Streams from Flowing Fountains

One can hardly think of a spring of pure cold water without the associated picture of people gathered about it to enjoy its satisfying bounty. It is indeed an interesting sight to watch a group about a park spring in a large city on a warm day. Within a comparatively few moments dozens or even scores of persons may appear on the scene to quench their thirst. It is also interesting to note how such a group of city folk, who at other times might feel a sense of hurry and impatience, at the spring are disposed to be patient and considerate of one another; for they know that the supply is abundant for all who desire to partake, and also that the flow of water is so constant as to preclude any necessity for crowding.

How similar in some respects to the spring is a Christian Science Wednesday evening testimony meeting, where are gathered individuals from near and far who are seeking and thirsting for the healing and satisfying truth there poured forth! How necessary it is for every one who participates in this gathering to bring with him a receptive mental attitude, ready to take the clear, satisfying Word of God as it is given out at the desk from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and as its expression flows forth in grateful testimonies of healing from earnest hearts! What need, also, that each one bring the attitude of meekness and humility wherewith to put aside a sense of faultfinding, and stoop with dignity to the point where he is able to receive the healing message from each honest testimony, however falteringly given!
