Wednesday, Oct ,2, 1963 19 to "tftimm arid addictions which fyilt slaves of men and separate; them from their natural dignity."; Roy J,. JUnnlg was, the speaker, under spOMorshlp of First Church of Christ, Scientist. The lecture was titled! "The Science of Happiness" and was given In the church edifice at Broad and Losey street* "To delight In doing God's will is to experience true joy," said Mr. Linnig. To do this, prayer is essential, he said. Through pirayer we begin "the Joyous striving to bring 'every thought to the obedience of Christ.'" This is a ""ceaseless prayer," he added. It "awakens such a love for God ia our hearts that to know and obey Him becomes our one endeavor. We see that evil tendencies are foreign to us. Fleshly attractions lose their false appeal, and in their place is born man's natural gravitation to his divine source, God. "We know the thrill of yielding to God's healing power, the thrill of being whole and glad." The lecturer told of one case where such prayer had brought healing to a man addicted to one of the many enslaving forms of sin. There was a "gradual but complete reformation" in the man's life, as he "began to see that satisfaction is found only in obeying God." Such a change "is not made in a moment," remarked Mr. Linnig. He urged the audience not to be "surprised when tempted to think or act evilly." We are always "at the point of choosing between good and evil," he said. The important thing is to "detect temptation" — to face it and reject it. Christianity shows that "evil must be faced and over- Come 1 through obedience to God." This means "letting go of all that would turn us away from God," he said. "We must let go our hold on evil, and cling to Truth with both hands — cling to every right idea, every spiritual motive, and reject every evil thought." This kind of obedience, he declared, "is the essence of true joy" — the happiness "already within you as the child of God." He quoted Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer of Christian Science: "God 's being is infinity, freedom, harmony, and boundless bliss" Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 481). in this quiet place. a book may be read that can give you fresh 'purpose in life You may have passed by this quiet place many times—but have never entered it.Tet here 'in this peaceful room, ready for you to read, is A book that has brought new meaning into the lives of many, has given them hope and a sense of spiritual direction.
