Dignity of Christian Science Practice

Every student of Christian Science is in some measure a practitioner, since he adapts to his affairs the truth as it unfolds from his daily study and investigation. Not only does he apply Science to his own problems, but occasionally, although not yet listed as a practitioner, does he assist others, relatives or friends for example, out of their difficulties.

Here is one of the encouraging features of Christian Science, that it can be utilized by the beginner, and with effect; because, as Mary Baker Eddy, its Discoverer and Founder, has well said, "A grain of Christian Science does wonders for mortals, so omnipotent is Truth, but more of Christian Science must be gained in order to continue in well doing" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 449).

And what is the healing truth? Briefly this: The Supreme and only Being is inexpendable Mind, Life, and Love, reflected without diminution by man, thus constituting him the image of the Eternal. Let any individual admit this spiritual fact for himself day by day, thereby repudiating all error, and observe the transformation, because consciousness, so instructed, builds for sounder health and character.
