GOD'S WOMANHOOD

When Mary Baker Eddy wrote the poem "Christ and Christmas" she had it illustrated in order to amplify her meaning. But there was opposition to this volume, because the public misunderstood it. Some clergymen objected to the illustrations, and Mrs. Eddy published an explanation which we now have in her book "Miscellaneous Writings." In this explanation she says (p. 33), "All clergymen may not understand the illustrations in 'Christ and Christmas;' or that these refer not to personality, but present the type and shadow of Truth's appearing in the womanhood as well as in the manhood of God, our divine Father and Mother."

This statement gives the profound keynote of our Leader's mission: Christian Science, which she discovered, reveals God and His Christ in their fullness—in their feminine as well as their masculine aspects. This revelation brings to light God and His idea in their completeness of nature. Now it is understood that whatever emanates from Deity expresses both the masculine and the feminine elements of Christliness.
