Christmas 1996

In the opening sentences of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy expresses her love for every reader with a promise particularly relevant to this season:

To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings. The wakeful shepherd beholds the first faint morning beams, ere cometh the full radiance of a risen day. So shone the pale star to the prophet-shepherds; yet it traversed the night, and came where, in cradled obscurity, lay the Bethlehem babe, the human herald of Christ, Truth, who would make plain to benighted understanding the way of salvation through Christ Jesus, till across a night of error should dawn the morning beams and shine the guiding star of being. The Wisemen were led to behold and to follow this daystar of divine Science, lighting the way to eternal harmony (p. vii).

May every reader of Science and Health, and of this Sentinel, experience the abundant Christmas blessings that flow from "leaning on the sustaining infinite."
