Telephone No. 290 Postville, Iowa CHEVROLET DEALER CAR-SERVICE IS YOUR BEST CAR-SAVER Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, June 23, 1946, Is "Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved By Atomic Force?" The golden text is "The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens." (Proverbs 3:19) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the BSblo citations reads: "And, behold, there aroso a great tempest in the sea, insomuch.that the ship was covered with the waves: but ho was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoko him, saying, Lord, savo us: wo perish. And ho saith unto them, Why are yo fearful, O ye of little faith? Then ho arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm." (Matt. 8:24-26) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "There is no vapid fury of mortal mind— expressed in earthquake, wind, wave, lightning-, fire, bestial ferocity— and this so- called mind is self-destroyed. The manifestations of evil, which counterfeit divine justice, are called in the Scriptures, 'The anger of the Lord.' In reality, they show the self destruction of error or matter and point to matter's opposite, the strength and permanency of Spirit." (p. 293) For Sale—24 young calves, weighing about 350 to 400 lbs.
