What deep and stirring thoughts are awakened in students in school and college by the word "loyalty"! Loyalty to their Alma Mater, to the fine traditions of an institution, to the colors which long have stood for fair play and unflagging effort! Students are usually enthusiastic and indefatigable in loyalty to their various teams, and players willingly sacrifice many hours of leisure and recreation that they may bring honor to the school.
At midnight, grimly guarded, Paul and SilasIn the inner prison lay,Held in the stocks, their flesh torn by the lash,For witnessing to Truth; and yet,Disdaining all material evidence that seemed to boastOf wrong triumphant, joyously they sangPraises to God on high, and prayed,And sang again.
A column writer for the Record, in whimsical mood, recently made a rather unjust and misleading reference to Christian Scientists.
In your issue of December 1 appears an article which purports to relate to Christian Science, but which does not explain its real teaching.
A recent issue contains a letter on the subject of Christian Science.
A Christian is the one who triesTo walk where Jesus led,Who knows that he must sacrificeIf men be comforted;
It may fairly be said that the human race is engaged in a titanic struggle for the mastery over what is termed evil.
To the materially-minded, the brief public experience of Christ Jesus, including his words and works, presents a puzzling paradox.
A question which is occupying the thought of Christian Science churches in some of the larger cities today deals with the maintenance and the extent of the usefulness and activities of the Reading Rooms which they jointly operate.
During the years spent in my native country I had a great desire to know where to find God, but I did not know where or how to find Him until 1915, when a theatrical engagement brought me to the United States.
In 1916 I was in a sad condition mentally and physically.
I have felt for some time that I should like to express my gratitude for the many healings that I have received in Christian Science.
I should like to bear grateful testimony to the experience which it has been my privilege to have in Christian Science.
Having received incalculable aid in the past seven or eight years from the testimonies of other students of Christian Science printed in our periodicals, I am grateful for this privilege of giving as well as receiving.
I should like to express my deep gratitude for all the blessings I have received through Christian Science.
In October, 1901, Christian Science was presented to me and was accepted for physical healing.
As I look back over the many years during which Christian Science has sustained and comforted me, there comes to me a deep desire to bear witness to the healing ministry of this practical religion.
Gratitude prompts me to acknowledge what Christian Science has done for me.
I am most grateful for the opportunity of expressing my gratitude for the healing power of Christian Science as manifested in an instantaneous healing of lung trouble.
