When teaching school at one time, I was surprised to see a small lad steal softly into my room and put a little paper on my desk. He was going from room to room dropping a scrap of paper on each teacher's desk. The papers were covered with scratches of all colors. I inquired what he might be doing, and he said, with a shy smile, "Giving everyone a rainbow." I thought: "What a lovely thing to do! Distributing rainbows! The teachers could surely use a few rainbows."

The thought came later that this is what Christian Scientists should do: distribute rainbows. They have a great opportunity to bring the rainbows of hope and promise to those who are under a cloud of sickness or sorrow. They, indeed have the rich and wonderful advantage of bringing the means of fulfillment of God's assuring and protecting promises to the attention of those who need them.

The healing truths contained in the Bible have been explained through "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Christian Scientists have seen the precious Scriptural promises fulfilled in their own lives, and now they love to help others to understand them.
