PETER 6, BIGGINS GIVES CHRISTIAN SCIENCE SPEECH Presents It as "Science o Divine Power" at Local Church. Peter B. Biggins, C. S. B., o Seattle, Wash., a member of. the board of lectureship of the mother church, The First Church of . Christ, Scientist, in Bosto, Mass. delivered a lecture on "Christian Science: The Science of Divine Power" in the local Christian Science church Auditorium Friday evening. The speaker was introduced by Mrs. J. Axet Johnscn second reader of the Mason City church. The lecturer spoke substantially as follows: "Today a large number of people are using what is generally regarded as power, electrical energy In the laboratory, in the factory in the workshop, in the home many are thus engaged. While comparatively little is known about electricity, it is being utilized for many useful purposes Throughout the land, rivers are being harnessed for the production of electrical energy, with the expectation that this will substantially lessen human toil and minister still further to human comfort. Improvements Welcome "Such · improvements, wisely promoted, are welcome. They may serve to point our attention to the · utilization of the power of divine Mind, the energy of Spirit. At this time, when the resources of the material universe are being explored to the utmost, let us take some time to inquire into the capabilities of the divine Mind, God to explore the resources of Spirit Soul. "In the Bible we find illuminating statements made by one who understood and used the power ol God, of divine principle, in a remarkable degree, Jesus of Nazareth. Listen to these striking words, as recorded in the twenty- eighth chapter of Matthew's Gospel, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." It was His understanding of this spiritual power that enabled Christ JPSUS to heal the sick, cleanse the sinning, raise the dead. Christ Jesus' Healing Power "We read in the Gospel of Luke that on a certain Sabbath day Christ Jesus went into the synagogue and taught. By this time the Master had done some healing work in public, and these wonderful healings had attracted attention. The scribes and the Pharisees now watched him, to see whether. he would heal on the Sabbath day, that they might be able to accuse him, according to their misconception of the Mosaic law. Think of it.' They were endeavoring to find an accusation against the great Master for healing hopeless disease on the Sabbath! "Well, on this particular day there was in the synagogue a man whose hand was withered. Jesus knew what the scribes and the Pharisees were thinking, and he said to the man with the withered hand, "Rise up, and stand forth in the midst." The man obeyed. He arose and stood forth. He utilized power to this extent--. the extent to which he understood it, and was able to utilize it. Then Jesus suicl to those around him, 'I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the Sabbath days I n do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?' So far as we can gather, he did not wait for an answer, but addressing the man. said, 'Stretch forth thy hand.' Here again the man obeyed, 'And his hand was restored whole as the other." Arose anfl Walkefl. "The scene now shifts to the second half of the nineteenth century, A woman who had been doing her best, by tongue and pan, to help humanity was lying ill. As she lay in pain, despaired of by physician and friends, she called for her Bible. Opening it, she read of one of the healings to which reference has been made, the healing of the man who .was sick of the palsy. As she read, she felt the power of the ever-present Christ, and was healed. Like the palsied man'of whom she read, she arose and walked. She utilized I he power which had been revealed to her. The woman was Mary Baker Eddy. "Like the man in Christ Jesus' day, to whom reference has been made, she stretched forth her hand and accepted the revelation which came to her, and was healed. After several years of searching the Scriptures and impelled by the divine power which had healed her, she wrote the Christian Science textbook, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.' Mrs. Eddy refers to this when, in her illustrated poem, 'Christ and Christmas,' she writes (p. 39,) 'As in blest Palestina's hour, So in our age, 'Tis the s.ime hand unfolds His power. And writes the page.' "My friends, if we could draw back the curtain of today's history just now, and sec the unnumbered thousands who have been healed, saved, blessed, as a result of reading Science and Health, never again would we be able to'doubt that the power of the ever-present Christ is with us here today, operating mightily in Christian Science. Utilization of Divine Power. "We make use of the power of God through prayer. We are learning that the ever-present good ;an bo utilized by a scientific understanding of Him. The simple fact t h a t God is All-in-all, and Ml a I man is.made in the image and MASON CITY' GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 20 · 1937 LeadersinAmerican Legion Auxiliary Conference SEVEN Mrs. Wilbur DeWeese likeness of God, is precious beyond words. "The proofs of our growing ability to utilize the power of infinite good are very encouraging and inspire us to press on anc gain a higher understanding, anc consequently a better ability to prove the power of God, infinite good. Mrs. Eddy has written in 'No and yes' (p. 39): 'True prayei is not asking God for love; it is learning to love, and to include al mankind In one affection. Prayoi is the utilization of the love wherewith He loves us.' Here is the true utilization o£ power, the using o the power of love. Abundant Supiily. "Many who have taken up the study of Christian Science gratefully testify to the fact that it has solved for them the problem o: supply. Christian Science touches this subject of supply sympathetically, as did our great Master Christ Jesus, of whom we read he had 'compassion on the multitude.' Is it not plain that out loving Father-Mother'God, who owns all and controls all, can am does supply every needed gooc thing to all His children? God is indeed an 'open fount' (Science and Health, p. 2), pouring forth all that we need. It is for us to make use of this bounty. One great step toward gaining the enjoyment of our normal supply is the getting rid of fear, fear of lack fear of poverty, fear of the future through the understanding of omnipresent, all-sufficing love. As we accept the positive assurance implied in the Psalmist's statement, 'f shall not want,' and accept love's abundant supply foi every need, and make this om own, we shall see a great change in our experience. "The enjoyment of normal supply is not, primarily, a-question of having a certain amount o money. It is rather having the unshaken conviction of God's abundant provision for every need. We need a larger sense oi substance, the habitual ability to look to God as the infinite source of all good, instead of looking to material things, whether they be scanty or abundant. Each one has abilities, opportunities, possibilities, beyond what he has yet realized. As we each find our true individuality as the image and likeness of God, we are finding the key to a more abundant life. Proved Availability. 'Many in the audience have proved the availability of the divine power over and over again. Dlhcrs wish to know better how :o begin to use this power. To the latter I would say: The means are readily at hand. Study the Bible and the Christian Science text- 3ook, 'Science and Health with :ey to the Scriptures' by Mary 3aker Eddy. Begin by using the simple facts of being in your daily life. Keep free from complicated methods, and avoid abstruse questions. The truth of be- ng is simple, yet it is adequate :o solve the most complicated problems when sincerely applied. "Do not despise the simple beginnings. Do not think that you leed to be in a wider sphere, or o occupy a more important position, before you can use this power. Begin to use it now, and il will lead you step by step to ligher things. Let us remember he wise counsel given by Mrs. Eddy in Science and Health (p. ·120), 'We must begin , . . with he more simple demonstrations of control, and the sooner we be;in the better.' " Another Dice Game Holdup May Have Been by Same Gang EDDYVILLE, (/P)_A man who aid he was among 15 dice players leld up by five masked men here ast Saturday night siill had his ingers crossed Saturday. "After I read about the dice ame holdup at Carroll Thursday nd how Earl Heider was killed, I icgan to think some o[ us prob- bly were close to wooden over- oats," he said. "It might have een the same gang." The holdup victim said the jandits came to an Eddyville club- oom while a dice and poker game vas in progress. "There was a knock at the 'oor," he said, "and one of us sked who it was. One of the rob- ers said it was Bill and we let iem in. One of them had a ma- hine gun and one a shotgun. "I crossed my fingers when I aw them. They took all the money ve had. Made us strip off our lothes so they could go through he pockets. They were plenty ough. Cracked a couple of the oys over the head. "The more I think of it the more think they might have been the ang that pulled the holdup at arroll." .

Spcrr.v for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Second Week--"An Eternity of Thought." "HE KNOWETH THE WAY I TAKE" Saturday, Feb. 20. "Then shall I know even as also 1 am known." Read I Corinthians 13. Saint Paul has here made his peace with our Ignorance. At the most we "know in part." But behind and beyond : the limits of our knowledge is the confidence that we are already " K n o w n " -[known to God and known by |God. Centuries earlier Job had fal- |len back on the s a m e thought. [The first part of book, which DR. SPERRY, [o 3Sv| the ways of God, ends i'n"ackno«'i- edged defeat. But Job does not give up religion on that account. He turns to another idea. It is true, his argument runs, that I do not know the way he takes, but he knovveth the way that I take." Religion is something more than a one-sided affair. As "we love him because he first loved us" so in this area of the mind, we come slowly, to understand him because he already understands us. Since we believe that there is a God who knows and has always known, we cannot give up our patient endeavor to know also, and our confidence that in his good lime "we shall know, even as also we are itnown." Prayer: O God, who lias beset us Behind and before, and who knowest us as we cannot know ourselves of thee, grant us confidence in the divine compassion which environs us and readiness .o trust thy knowledge of our untried powers: Through him who shared with us this mortal. life even Jesus Christ our Lord.
