"Stranger, thou art the guest of God"

"Stranger, thou art the guest of God." What a welcome is found in these closing words from the chapter "Footsteps of Truth" in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 254) by Mary Baker Eddy! Who would not consider it a blessing to find himself a guest in one of the Sanatoriums of our Christian Science Benevolent Association, with its doors flung open wide with a warmth of love and hospitality! Such a happy experience may be ours, for a place has been prepared and is awaiting us, where we may find quiet, rest, and comfort in contemplating "the secret place of the most High." When we leave this hospitable resting place we carry with us its healing beneficence, which will continue to awaken and to inspire.

Many remarkable healings have taken place in our Sanatoriums, and they offer to all who are following the teachings of Christian Science a haven of rest, a place of refuge, a shelter from the storm. Here shall we sing with the Psalmist, "Thou art my rock and my fortress," "a shelter ... and a strong tower." Our Sanatoriums provide desirable and harmonious surroundings, environment, and loving care for those seeking relief from physical difficulties. But this is not their only purpose. They also offer to those who are enjoying health and to active workers in the Christian Science movement an opportunity for quiet and uninterrupted study. These workers, church officers, and practitioners find there valuable advantages for study, meditation, and spiritual refreshment.
