An article in the "Dr. Day Column" in the "Times" of June 14, prompts me to write.

Faith healing is a term which is not always synonymous with spiritual healing or divine healing. The full power of God to heal people of sin and sickness is not conveyed by faith alone.

In my contact with Christian Science, I am aware of many wellverified reports of healing through prayer. These include healings of serious illness, both functional and organic. There are on record healings of cancer which has been medically diagnosed as terminal.

Christ Jesus taught and demonstrated the healing of much more than the so-called psychosomatic ailments. In the Bible it is recorded Jesus said, "With God all things are possible" (Matt. 19:26).

God has not changed in the last 2000 years. Christian healing is just as successful to-day, when man's relationship to his Father, God, is understood. It is not mere faith which brings these healings. It is the power of God.
