The station announcer said: "Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. It is Columbia's pleasure to present another program in the fifth consecutive year of the 'Church of the Air' series. The service today is coming to you from Station WABC and is approved by The Christian Science Board of Directors of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. The broadcast is conducted by William Wallace Porter, C. S. B., Christian Science Committee on Publication for the State of New York. The subject of Mr. Porter's address is 'The Man of God.' The soloist, Carrie S. Hirsch, is assisted by Mildred Dilling, harpist, and Michael de Stefano, violinist. We now give the service into the hands of Mr. Porter."

Two hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal were sung by the soloist, the first being No. 382. Following this, Mr. Porter read from the Bible as follows: Genesis 1:1, 26 (to :), 27, 31 (to period); John 2:19, 21; 21:20 (to ;), 21, 22; II Corinthians 5:4; Revelation 21:1 (to :), 3, 5, 10, 22; 22:1, 2, 6, 8 (to period), 10. And from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: Preface vii: 13 (only), 15-20; 3:12-14 (to ;); 4:17-22; 111:11-18; 114:23-27; 269:9-11, 5-8; 260:31-4; 261:21-27. Mr. Porter then read an address substantially as follows:

One of the happiest occupations in this world of ours is that of exercising more and more the capacity to think correctly. This is what Jesus was doing when he was found in the temple in the midst of the doctors both hearing them and asking them questions. He was about his Father's business, he said, exercising his real heritage, the capacity to think or to understand spiritually.
