Something New

The poem was later republished in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany: My. 341:8-16

All the Churches of Christ, Scientist (from this date), are requested to read at the close of services, and before benediction, the "Scientific Statement of Being."

There is no life, truth, intelligence, or substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All in all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness; hence, man is spiritual and not material.

And the correlative Scripture according to 1 John, 3 : 1, 2, 3.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God; therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.

Beloved brethren all over our land and in every land accept Mother's Spring greeting, while

The bird of hope is singing,
A lightsome lay, a cooing call,
And in her heart is beating
A love for all—
" 'Tis peace not power I seek,
'Tis meet that man be meek."

 Mary Baker G. Eddy.
