When, long ago, those fair Judean waysOur loving Master trod,How filled were all his days with living proofOf unity with God;The Holy Word to humble folk he taught,New faith, new hope, new aims to them he brought;Blind eyes at his command received the light,Dumb lips cried out in awe before his might.
The implied recognition of Christian Science as a healing method, in remarks quoted in your issue of January 2, is appreciated.
Will you kindly permit me to make a few remarks in reply to those of a clergyman which appeared in Numbers 44, 49, and 50 of the Volksblatt for 1933.
Your correspondent makes the following statement: "When people ask the question, 'Which is the way to eternal life?
A letter published in the Gleaner asks a reply to several questions regarding the teachings of Christian Science on certain points.
By establishing cordial relations with editors, presenting to them the facts regarding the teachings of Christian Science, showing them that our religion does preeminently honor God, and that its mission is to bless all mankind, much has been accomplished.
In the sixteenth chapter of Acts there is a brief but vivid account of the experience of Paul and Silas in a prison into which they had been thrust and bound after they had been beaten by order of the magistrates.
A basic statement regarding satisfaction is found in Science and Health.
Some confusion exists in the thought of people here and there as to what constitutes a recognized branch church or society.
The branch churches and societies that have not furnished historical statements as requested in the Sentinel for August 6, 1932, are now requested to send them to the Bureau of History and Records, 107 Falmouth Street, Boston, Massachusetts, as soon as may be conveniently possible.
My gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me prompts me to give this testimony.
For some of the many blessings I have received through the study of Christian Science, I wish to take this opportunity to express my gratitude.
As I look back over the years during which Christian Science has sustained and protected me from the ills of the flesh, and given me a better understanding of God and man's relation to Him, there comes to me a deep desire to bear witness to its healing ministry.
For many years I had periods of great suffering from an internal trouble, which always left me weak and quite unable to follow my household duties.
The first Christian Science healing which I witnessed was that of softening of the brain, with complications from chronic alcoholism and extreme drug addiction.
I wish to express my gratitude for the many blessings that have come to me through the study and application of Christian Science.
I am very grateful to God, our Father-Mother; to His Son, Christ Jesus, who has shown us the way; and to Mary Baker Eddy, who, divinely inspired, has revealed Christian Science to us, and whose book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" helps us to understand the Bible.
About twenty-five years ago I was ill and utterly discouraged, having passed through the ordeal of one severe surgical operation and being threatened with the necessity of another.
I am very grateful that I was led to take up the study of Christian Science, and should like to share some of my experiences with others.
How often have I watched an ocean wavePush forward, gather native strength, repressed,And rise, and rise, and then a moment rest,Ere power within burst from its arched concaveTo scatter wide a wealth of jewels, to laveAnd beautify the shore! In eager questAgain it gathers treasures to its breastAnd casts them at my feet.
