In your recent issue the following comment is reported under the heading "The Part Religion Plays": "People who left the church and went to, say, Christian Science, would find there was something new in that movement, and they would feel better mentally and physically." Later on is the statment: "They developed a new mind and a new interest. But yet they could have done all that in their other church before they broke away."

I think experience proves the very reason why they "broke away" is that they began to realize a new and more practical aspect of Christianity, and so went to the church where there was freedom and encouragement to act according to this fuller teaching of Christ.

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and the Founder of the Church of Christ, Scientist, writes in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 224): "A higher and more practical Christianity, demonstrating justice and meeting the needs of mortals in sickness and in health, stands at the door of this age, knocking for admission. Will you open or close the door upon this angel visitant, who cometh in the quiet of meekness, as he came of old to the patriarch at noonday?"
