"THE DEAR CHRIST ENTERS IN"

The approach of Christmas stirs great joy and gratitude in the heart of the Christian Scientist. He welcomes it as an opportunity for the magnification of the things of Spirit and the subjugation of material pleasures and pastimes. He knows that through higher conduct and thought the true concept and significance of Christmas will appear. More than a mere celebration of the birth of Christ Jesus, the most spiritually minded and best individual ever to inhabit this earthly sphere, Christmas commemorates the revelation to the human consciousness of the Christ, the divine idea of God.

The story of the nativity is dear to students of Christian Science. Its simplicity and homeliness are the only fit and proper accompaniments to its great spiritual import. Had the event been attended by ceremony and the mere giving of earth's finite treasures, which characterize today's observances, its significance might well have been lost. But he who of all mankind best exemplified the spiritual ideal of Truth was received into a materialistic world in the meek and humble surroundings of a lowly manger in a roadside inn.
