TO FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST, SCIENTIST, IN OCONTO



   My Beloved Brethren: - Lips nor pen can ever express
the joy you give me in parting so promptly with
your beloved pastor, Rev. Mr. Norcross, to send him to
aid me.  It is a refreshing demonstration of Christianity,
brotherly love, and all the rich graces of the Spirit.  May
this sacrifice bring to your beloved church a vision of the
new church, that cometh down from heaven, whose altar
is a loving heart, whose communion is fellowship with
saints and angels.  This example of yours is a light that
cannot be hid.
   Guided by the pillar and the cloud, this little church
that built the first temple for Christian Science worship
shall abide steadfastly in the faith of Jesus' words: "Fear

not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to
give you the kingdom."  May He soon give you a pastor;
already you have the great Shepherd of Israel watching
over you.  Give my forever-love to your dear church.
                                        Yours in bonds of Christ,
                                        MARY BAKER G. EDDY
  Boston, Mass., 1889
