Our Healing Pastor

A librarian writes:

"We have a most valuable asset in our Reading Room which we often take for granted; yet the magnitude and continuity of its silent and impersonal work cannot be easily estimated. This asset is our front display window. Hour by hour it offers to the passerby the opportunity to acquaint himself with the Bible and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, the two books which our Leader ordained as our only pastor (see Miscellaneous Writings, p. 313). That this pastor is consulted by the people in this community is observed time and time again by those serving in the Reading Room.

"A woman came in one afternoon and said that she was at 'the end of her rope.' She had spent thousands of dollars seeking relief from her fears and infirmities. Because of loneliness and grief, she was smoking and drinking and now had what appeared to be an incurable disease. At the window she had stopped to read the marked passages in the Lesson-Sermon [set forth in the Christian Science Quarterly], What did Christian Science have to offer her? The librarian, after explaining the hope and comfort Science had for her, lent her a copy of Science and Health. Continued study of this book lifted the woman's thought above her fears and doubts. Her condition began to improve.
