A Friend Forever

It is sometimes felt that Christian Scientists deify Mary Baker Eddy, but this is not true. They love her, yes, but they do not worship her. Who does not love a benefactor who has brought into his life a light that has completely changed his course, dispelled his fears, brought comfort to his sorrow and surcease to his ills?

Mrs. Eddy was not motivated by personal ambition. She did not yearn for fame or glory. Born and reared, as she had been, on an obscure New England hilltop, her early life held forth no promise of these. Yet it is not hard to believe that it was on this obscure hilltop, with its vistas of surrounding mountains, its wide expanse of sky, its rigorous winters, its springtimes of promise and autumns of harvest, that the Christ, Truth, germinated in the heart of the little child.
