CHAPTER VIII: Dedicatory Messsages to Branch Churches
page 671


Attempt nothing without God's help.
   May the beauty of holiness be upon this dear people,
and may this beloved church be glorious, without spot
or blemish.


FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST, SCIENTIST,
SAN JOSE, CAL.

   Beloved Students: - Words are inadequate to express
my deep appreciation of your labor and success in completing
and dedicating your church edifice, and of the
great hearts and ready hands of our far Western students,
the Christian Scientists.
   Comparing such students with those whose words
are but the substitutes for works, we learn that the
translucent atmosphere of the former must illumine the
midnight of the latter, else Christian Science will disappear
from among mortals.
   I thank divine Love for the hope set before us in the
Word and in the doers thereof, "for of such is the kingdom
of heaven."


FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST, SCIENTIST,
WILMINGTON, N. C.

   My Beloved Brethren: - At this dedicatory season of
your church edifice in the home of my heart, I send loving
congratulations, join with you in song and sermon.
God will bless the work of your hearts and hands.
                                        Pleasant View, Concord, N. H.,
                                        July 27, 1907
