"COME UNTO ME"

A Student privileged to serve as an attendant in a Christian Science Reading Room found herself desiring a better understanding of the significance and activity of the Reading Room. One evening, as she looked about the rooms where the Christian Science literature was displayed, the words, "Come unto me," came to her thought. "Me?" she questioned, and as quickly realized that here the "me" means the Christ, Truth. Then she recalled the full quotation (Matt. 11:28): "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

As the student pondered these words, she found herself paraphrasing them as follows: Come unto me—the true idea of God and man—all ye that are burdened with fears, lack, sickness, or sorrow, and this true idea will give you health, happiness, and completeness. In the Christian Science Reading Rooms are found the books and articles which will enable you to gain an understanding of this spiritual concept. Dwelling with this thought, she saw the Bible, the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and our Leader's other writings as fountainheads of truth, and the periodicals, The Christian Science Journal, the Sentinel, and the Heralds, both bound volumes and current issues, as invitations to a feast.
