In a recent issue, under the heading "Healing Definite Part of Ministry," a clergyman, addressing a theological conference, paid a tribute to the Christian Science religion which is appreciated. However, in his remarks he stated, "The great failing in Christian Science is the lack of science." Will you kindly allow me space to correct this statement?

The word "science" is derived from scire, "to know, or to understand." So Christian Science is the knowledge or understanding of Christ, or Truth, begotten not by the human mind, but by the divine Mind, or God. At the Wednesday evening services in Christian Science churches all over the world expressions of gratitude are given for healings, physical and mental, brought about by a better understanding of God, the divine Mind.

We'd love to hear from you!
