I should like to express gratitude...

I should like to express gratitude through The Christian Science Journal or the Sentinel for the many benefits we received from the study and application of Christian Science during the year we lived in a small town where there was no Christian Science church. While living there I realized the truth of the definition of "Church" in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 583), which reads, in part: "Church. The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle." I learned that no matter where we are Church is ever present, because God is wherever man is, and man is wherever God is—thus the ever-presence of the "structure of Truth and Love," the perfect manifestation of God. I was very happy in the realization of God's wholeness, and of man's completeness in ever-present Mind.

We were beautifully protected during that year of separation from the material symbol of Church, and received several very quick healings of physical disorders. Many false traits of disposition were recognized and overcome, and a greater sense of dependence on God was gained.
