Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for December 21, 1947 is "Is The Universe, Including Man, Evolved By Atomic Force?" The golden text Is "The word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.. .For he spake, "and it was done; he commanded, arid it stood fast." (Psalms 33:4,9) 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 Bible citations reads: "And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. Jesus saith ui .to him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath'." (John 5:5,8,9) From the Christian Science textbook is the following: "Mortals think wickedly: consequently they are wicked. They think sickly thoughts, and so become sick. If sin makes sinners, Truth and Love alone can unmake them. If a sense of disease produces suffering and a sense of ease antidotes suffering, disease is mental, not material. Hence the fact that the human mind alone suffers, is sick, and that the divine Mind alone heals." (page 270) CARD OF THANKS. We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude for the many expressions of sympathy and acts of kindness during our bereavement, the passing on of our beloved husband and father, Harold Stone. To Rev. Seamans, those who brought floral offerings and all who assisted us in any way do we also extend our thanks. — Mrs. Delia' Stone and Cathryn. RECKLESS FLYING.
