"Love prepareth"

OUR Leader's spiritual interpretation of the twenty-third psalm, on page 578 of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," reads in part, "[Love] prepareth a table before me." Jesus of Nazareth, the most perfect host of all the ages, has shown us how Love prepares its table. Thirty years of unparalleled preparation preceded the feasts that he provided for his disciples and for the hungering multitudes. A life of devotion to spiritual thinking prepared our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, for her great gift to mankind—Christian Science.

One of the most potent means of dispensing this spiritual gift of Christian Science to a hungering world is the Wednesday evening testimony meetings in Christian Science churches. Here the people gather as they did in Jesus' time—the tired, the hungry, the sick, the world-weary, the sinworn. More than for any other purpose, this Wednesday evening feast is designed to feed such as these, who "hunger and thirst after righteousness;" and the Church Manual(p. 122) definitely provides for the giving of this feast, at which the blessings that have come to us may be shared with others.
