In a recent issue a contributor states in reference to world affairs, "Great events are happening and greater events seem imminent;" and then he asks, "Cannot someone enlighten us as to the trend of world events? Here is a chance," he says, "for the 'shepherds' to feed the 'sheep,' though they may not be of their fold."

Christian Science can give the enlightenment he is seeking and can lead him to the fold which gathers together all men of every class, color, creed, or nation, with the cry, "Ho, every class, that thirsteth, come ye to the waters."

To embark on an explanation of how Christian Science enlightens us "as to the trend of world events" through the columns of your paper would not do justice to Mary Baker Eddy's discovery and would tax your generosity in the allowance of space. Prayerful study of properly authorized literature on the part of the seeker is required—a retirement into one's spiritually mental closet and a shutting of the door on materialistic thinking. "To enter into the heart of prayer, the door of the erring senses must be closed," Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, says on page 15 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
