Why do Christian Scientists need to "stand porter at the door of thought," as our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has admonished us to do on <a class="tome-reference"
Having recently read in our periodicals reports of the progress made by the Christian Science movement during the past year, may we not profitably turn in retrospect to the beginnings of that movement?
The consecrated service rendered by the workers engaged in the distribution of Christian Science literature in counties where there are no Christian Science organizations; the faithful and devoted efforts of those who are carrying the message of Truth into the penal institutions, and the beautiful healing work resulting therefrom give assurance and irrefutable proof of a greater sense of unity, growth, and progress.
About twenty-six years ago a Christian Scientist took charge of our home, and to be courteous I frequently attended the services and lectures, and also read some of the periodicals, as well as the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.
"It is more blessed to give than to receive," and the desire to give prompts me to add my testimony of healing, that it may bring others confidence and assurance and that some weary one may know that the very disease he may have labored with long and seemingly in vain can be healed by Christian Science.
