The Practitioner and Our Periodicals

Interest in our periodicals and their circulation and healing activity began for one student of Christian Science because of a deep desire to identify himself unquestionably with our Cause as a loyal, alert Christian Scientist. This interest and desire, having grown over a period of years, broadened into a sincere love for these messengers of healing, especially as he saw his efforts to increase their circulation bear fruit. Love was the motive, and a desire to be helpful his purpose. His love and gratitude for Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, were so sincere that he wanted Christian Science and all its activities to succeed. His love for humanity made him wish to see its conditions improved, its standards elevated, its sorrows assuaged, its healings accomplished.

And what can aid in doing this better than our beloved misssionaries. The Christian Science Journal, the Christian Science Sentinel, The Herald of Christian Science, and The Christian Science Monitor? They reach impersonally where an individual could not penetrate. They are like the "leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened;" or like a stone which is dropped into a large body of water and produces waves which ripple on and on, touching many shores of human thought.

The result of this student's desire to be of service was a most satisfying and successful experience in greatly increasing the volume of his own work as a practitioner, as well as the circulation of the periodicals. It was proved that when one aligns oneself with good, spiritual growth is sure to follow.
