A WORD TO THE WISE



   My Beloved Brethren: - When I asked you to dispense
with the Executive Members' meeting, the purpose of my
request was sacred.  It was to turn your sense of worship
from the material to the spiritual, the personal to the
impersonal, the denominational to the doctrinal, yea,
from the human to the divine.
   Already you have advanced from the audible to the
inaudible prayer; from the material to the spiritual
communion; from drugs to Deity; and you have been
greatly recompensed.  Rejoice and be exceedingly glad,
for so doth the divine Love redeem your body from disease;
your being from sensuality; your soul from sense;
your life from death.

MY 140


   Of this abounding and abiding spiritual understanding
the prophet Isaiah said, "And I will bring the blind
by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in
paths that they have not known:  I will make darkness
light before them, and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake
them."
                                        Mary Baker Eddy
                                        Chestnut Hill, Mass.
