In "Neighborhood News" in your recent issue, the statement was made that as soon as a soloist at a funeral service commenced to sing, pain with which a named individual suffered, disappeared, followed by the assertion, "This is Christian Science." If the effect of the solo was such as to cause the one who had suffered from pain measurably to realize more of the nature of God's creation and the harmonious perfection of the real man as the image and likeness of his creator, then what happened was what Paul urges in his epistle to the Romans: "Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." This is the genuinely scientific healing process which operates in Christian Science. As Mary Baker Eddy puts it in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 162), "The effect of this Science is to stir the human mind to a change of base, on which it may yield to the harmony of the divine Mind."

Christian Science, as given to the world by Mary Baker Eddy, must, however, always be identified as an exact, scientific healing method, the same as that taught and demonstrated by Jesus of Nazareth. The mere singing of a solo, unless it accomplishes a "change of base" in the so-called human mind, will not produce healing.
