On behalf of the Christian Scientists of Connecticut, I wish to express gratitude for the generous space given in your issues of August 3 and 10 to articles from the Home Forum page of The Christian Science Monitor. These articles give the viewpoint of Christian Science as applied to the problems of this day and time.

We are also grateful for the letter in your issue of August 10 written by one who has observed the fruits of Christian Science as manifested in various outward ways, but admits that having tried to perceive the reason, concludes that "the proof offered seems to be largely based on mere assertion." We are most appreciative for his frank expression of appreciation for things he does not understand. May he not be as were those concerning whom Jesus said, "Ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?"

Paul found the same doubtings and questionings during his ministry. His attitude was summarized in that wonderful address before King Agrippa (Acts 26:8): "Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?" A momentous question! In his first letter to the Corinthians he gave the reason. He "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. ... But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
