The Scriptural record of the life of Christ Jesus, as given in the four Gospels, indicates that frequently he withdrew from the multitudes, and even from his beloved disciples, and went up into the mountains.
Students of Christian Science often find, as they continue in their study and practice of its great truths, that they are becoming more immune to sickness, that they are freer from discord and less susceptible to sin or other erroneous suggestions.

I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the kindly spirit manifested in your article of November 8, in regard to the recent sermon broadcast over Station WBOW, in which you mention the effect which it had on members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Terre Haute.
In the last few years, the duties of the Editors of the Christian Science periodicals, especially the duties of the Chief Editor, have been greatly increased, by new periodicals and by additional work.
To insure that complete lecture notices be printed in the Sentinel, detailed information should reach the Editorial Department regarding lectures in the United States and Canada, at least four weeks before the date of the lecture; in Great Britain and Ireland, at least five weeks before; in other European countries, at least eight weeks before.
As I look over the years in which I knew nothing of Christian Science, thought is always filled with a deep sense of gratitude to God for the yearnings which were experienced, as well as for all that then seemed to be grievous but which proved to be stepping-stones to the finding of God.
At the time the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was placed in my hands, there seemed to be no way out of the darkness of human belief through which I had been blindly groping since a sickly and pampered childhood.
I am grateful for the opportunity and privilege of giving this testimony; of giving to God, good, the glory that is due Him, and of proving that Christian Science heals organic disease, as well as functional, for I am a living witness to this truth.
