Excerpts from Letters Concerning Christian Science Wartime Activities
[From a Christian Science Service Center]
One evening a man of very forbidding appearance came in bringing his wife with him. He said he could only stay five minutes unless a question to which no one had ever given him a satisfactory reply could be answered intelligently. The question was, "How can it be that God said, 'Let us make man in our image,' if there is only one God and none other; why 'us' and 'our'?" The librarian took the textbook from the table and read Mrs. Eddy's answer to the question, "What is God?" on page 465 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."
The man gave an exclamation of surprise on hearing that the seven terms referred to one absolute God. He sat down and stayed nearly two hours listening and asking questions, and on leaving said, "I see I must have more love, tolerance, and patience for this little woman." His wife had been a frequent visitor to the Service Center, and at times appeared to be in great distress on account of her husband's unkindness. She wrote afterwards to say that the talk with her husband had had its good effect.
