Signs of the Times

[Hon. Ira F. Thompson, Judge, District Court of Appeals, in the Masonic Digest, Los Angeles, California]

The thought which prompts the Masonic Digest to print a series of articles from the adherents of different forms of religion giving a reason for the faith that is in them is indeed commendable, and worthy of our most serious consideration and reflection. It is in thorough accord and keeping with an injunction laid upon the students of Christian Science by its Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, in her work, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," on page 444, as follows: "Students are advised by the author to be charitable and kind, not only towards differing forms of religion and medicine, but to those who hold these differing opinions;" and, again, in Science and Health (p. 234): "Whatever inspires with wisdom, Truth, or Love—be it song, sermon, or Science—blesses the human family with crumbs of comfort from Christ's table, feeding the hungry and giving living waters to the thirsty."
